Powersoft announces plans for new headquarters near Florence, Italy

New 9,200m² HQ in Scandicci will boast research laboratories, spaces for quality testing, measurement and product demonstration

Powersoft has announced plans for a new headquarters, the Powersoft Human Audio Experience Centre, in Italy. Located in an area of Scandicci, near Florence, currently undergoing urban redevelopment, the centre is designed by Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia, an architectural firm with offices in Genoa, Milan and Paris.

The new HQ, which covers more than 9,200m² across four floors, will accommodate a projected increase in the size of the company’s workforce. By centralising all corporate functions, it is intended to improve cross-team collaboration, and deliver operational cost savings, while boosting energy efficiency.

A preliminary lease agreement has been signed with Bluesky Immobiliare, which will own the property. The building should be complete at the end of 2026, when all production lines and company departments will relocate from the existing HQ.

“This plan marks a significant milestone in the company’s history and growth trajectory. As Powersoft expands, there is a growing imperative to enlarge our space and fortify our resources, enhancing our business’s efficiency and competitiveness in the market,” said Luca Lastrucci, CEO, Powersoft.

Lastracci said the company’s desire to innovate is reflected in the architectural design. The building’s exterior profile resembles a sound wave, paying homage to the core business. The use of photovoltaic panels and energy efficient technologies reflects a commitment to minimising its environmental footprint.

Powersoft’s new HQ has spaces designed to cater to the diverse needs of employees, clients, consultants and guests, as well as students and the local community. In addition to research laboratories and spaces for quality testing, measurement and product demonstration, the centre has green areas, meeting rooms, fitness areas, a canteen and coffee corners.

The new building will serve as a versatile hub with spaces for events, demonstrations, and educational purposes, alongside exhibition areas dedicated to showcasing the history and evolution of audio technologies.
