More services

Due to a consultants and specialized professionals network, my practice offers to all the clients technical competences in acoustic design, fire prevention, plant design, geology and geotechnics, and much more.

The studio offers the best result for each client in every personalized project, completing traditional design solutions with innovative, sustainable unique and customizable technologies. I make it possible thanks to a continuing architectural education, a permanent products and materials research and thanks to a strong cooperation with professionals, vendors and builders which are severely selected in the course of a multi-year activity and able to combine the rapid completion of work with careful detailing where nothing is left to chance.

(In italian language)




A single contact point throughout the project until handover. The turnkey service begins with a phase of full designing, detailing and applying for the construction permit to pass the baton to instalment on site, including a careful selection of furnishings and finishes. All what you have to do is choose the best design according to your needs and watch every step of what is being built. No concern at all, just the assurance and the comfort of the right choice of a reliable team able to meet the deadlines without exceeding the budget stated in the contract.


Since 2012, january 24th the law about minimum professional fee had been repealed. It has also been made compulsory to give the client a detailed costs estimate which includes the professional fee and all the unsurprising expense of every single entrusted professional activity. The costs estimate can refer to different methodology for calculation, including the repealed ones, and it's absolutely necessary to avoid to exceed the budget you can afford.
