Laser Cut Metal Perfection at the Maximus Office

Móz Designs as Metal Fabricator

As leaders in sustainable real estate development, designers at Maximus turned to Oakland-based Móz Designs to create two new metal partitions for their corporate office space.


Maximus Real Estate Partners is the fastest growing real estate investment and development company in the San Francisco Bay Area. With over 5,000 multifamily apartments and 7,000 in the pipeline, the company is leading a revolution in the real estate industry. Their mission: to create mindfully innovative, sustainable “whole living” communities that transform the concept of urban living.


For the design of their corporate office, Studios Architects aimed to support Maximus' green building initiatives by sourcing only locally and sustainably manufactured products. As neighbors in the Bay Area, Móz Designs' Laser Cut metal sheets offered the perfect material solution for the Maximus office. Matte black aluminum panels finished with Móz's unique laser-cut Morph pattern infuse the office with a bold dotted gradient.


For the Maximus office, Laser Cut metal was applied in two ways - as a flat partition and curved partition to fit a custom angle. The circular Morph pattern was selected from twelve standard patterns in the Laser Cut Collection, while the Black powder coat option offered a flat matte finish. Led by a passionate team that continuously transcends expectations, Maximus is inspiring innovation in real estate with distinct, next-generation communities. It is this visionary perspective focused on building lasting prosperity for both company and community that led their designers to choose Móz.


Móz's Laser Cut aluminum sheets are a super versatile metal solution. Designers can specify the size, shape, and scale of laser-cut patterns according to the amount of light or transparency they want to utilize in a space. Additionally, Móz metal products contribute to LEED® v4 Materials and Resources credits and all Móz solid-core aluminum and stainless steel sheets.come with Health Product Declarations (HPD) and recycled content.
