Progetto CMR was founded in 1994 by three professionals with solid international experience: Massimo Roj, Marco Ferrario and Antonella Mantica. With an exceptional experience in the workspace planning, the three founders immediately aspired to re-invent the concept of workspace, re-interpreting the way office are designed. Progetto CMR is synonymous with integrated design. They have gained considerable national and international experience, chasing a steady growth but still staying true to our belief: put the client first. Still today, their primary objective is to create a flexible, efficient and sustainable architecture starting from an in-depth analysis of the customers' needs.
