Who We Are
Maschinenraum unites the power of German Mittelstand and family-owned businesses to build sustainable solutions for the future. We do this by building an open peer-to-peer environment for long-term collaborations and innovation. In this shared innovation ecosystem we build awareness and connections to new realities, we shape mindsets and agendas of organisations and facilitate execution and collective action for innovation and courage in Germany.
Originating from the transformation history of the Viessmann Group, Maschinenraum is an independent ecosystem from Mittelstand for the Mittelstand. Since 2015, Viessmann has been working courageously on the cultural and digital transformation of its own business. The company, which is more than 100 years old, has gained a great deal of experience on its own journey through the generational transition from Prof. Dr. Martin Viessmann to his son Maximilian Viessmann. Viessmann would like to share this knowledge and experience in order to continuously learn and to collaboratively work on innovations with other companies.
Housed in an impressive seven-floor landmark building in the heart of Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg, Maschinenraum provides a unique experience for Mittelstand companies who wish to connect, to collaborate and to innovate in equal measure. On 4.500 m², modern and minimalist design meets the historic charm of the original building - the “Goldpunkt” shoe factory. The building was redesigned by Pott Architects and A T L R / L K V.
