Our architecture firm develops housing space designs through life and work experiences that bring together different cultures and backgrounds.
The firm’s activity has mainly focused on residential architecture, analyzing its many different aspects.
The work developed in New York around the year 2000 and recently mixed together with a classical Italian cultural background, is giving life to a design that respects peculiar traditions and is open to new and innovative solutions.
This concept brought fresh challenges and sensations to the study of living spaces and a new crossroads where new and old meet. The work done on the “Evolution of the Echoppe building type” international competition (winner of the Bordeaux Architecture and Urbanism biennal), is emblematic of this concept.
The research we have done on residential, commercial and conceptual spaces has enabled us to realize and materialize different concepts of living based on our clients’ various needs and mentalities.
From thought to concept to realized space, we work with our clients to ensure that their vision becomes reality through architecture and design.
In the Gianicolo house, Celio Apartment as well as in the Rome historical center apartments, natural and historical surroundings mesh with innovative materials like resins, glass and steel. The environment and surrounding space are strongly considered as important reference points for the project conception.
The common approach for public and commercial spaces and housing, is the design concept that goes from the organization of the general space to the smallest furniture detail. Everything is thoroughly studied and designed, in order to create coherent spaces.
The study of materials is also pursued. Steel, wood, glass and other materials are utilized to investigate the different aspects of the concept of living in this space.
The firm’s practice is focused on a design philosophy where life becomes the center of the space that connects the outside with the inside. The project idea is inspired by the surrounding realities and gains strength from them, daring to find a balance made by both compromise and contrast.
