The architectural practice, founded in 1974, proposes itself as a space for research and multidisciplinary involvement, with particular interest in the development of a pure element linked to shape, culture or artistic representation, as an instrument to link people, architecture and landscape.
The architectural production encompasses a varied range of projects, from large and small landscapes interventions, to interior design for both home and commercial activities. Amongst projects listed are international proposals, participation in several competitions, and private commissions.
