While dynamics and continuously researching and evolving we preserve those roots in Milan seventies design peculiarities we believe are still relevant today more than ever.
We have many experiences in designing in historical and sensible locations from the landscape and cultural point of view, investigating from our early days the complex relationship between contemporary design and heritage, both in public and private environments. We firmly believe in a strategic reuse of the impressive global architectural heritage of all ages.
Our research for a sustainable approach to architecture mix both new and old strategies and technologies toward energy savings and most importantly pursuing the maximum comfort of people living our spaces.
The aknowledged aesthetical value of our works is the final touch of a 360° study around our client, his image, and most of all his expectations and goals.
