PHILOSOPHY

It’s an architectural practice, based in London and in Italy, with experience mainly in the field of private buildings on various scale levels and design. The studio undertakes a wide range of projects across residential and commercial sectors including retail, interior design, extensions, refurbishment, construction detail design, planning applications, yacht design, with the ability to handle challenging briefs in a variety of locations and contexts.

Rooted by the philosophy to work closely with clients to allow a project to evolve whilst addressing the brief and the budget. Building designs are developed to be innovative, collaborative and environmentally sensitive.

The approach is to achieve Eco-effective design solutions. Nature, in its multiple expressions and materials, represents a source of inspiration also in architectural terms. “What makes that challenge unique, however, is the ability to achieve results through original, non-conventional, and creative thinking.”

Projects have been published in architectural magazines.
