Speculative projects, concept buildings, competitions and residential projects
Speculative projects were designed with the aim to test and validate new design solutions for the current urban condition related to abandoned buildings in saturated built environments. Furthermore, these projects are both accurate project simulations that illustrations, developed in order to enhance our visualization techniques in architectural representation aiming to create unique and evocative stories that communicate and unveil the highest aesthetic value of the design process.
Later, the second series of houses, is a further attempt to combine the contribute of the highest research, concerning the taller and complex buildings, with the common dimension of living as thematic often avoided from the architectural research. Starting from this axiom, we designed three types of houses: the Oteiza-house inspired to the basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza, the expensive linear villa Mo-nei house for two families, and the single-family V house playing with the V shape to create a continuum without partition walls inside. In these houses there are many hidden elements, sometimes ironic items telling secret stories, details only visible to a keen eye. In this way the communication becomes the most stimulating and nearest to the pure storytelling and to the real life.

Design Development ▾
We developed collaboration projects with Come Se - Rosetta Angelini for the Amnesty International headquarter and for the refurbishment of Civico Zero - Save the children, both in Rome. We followed the technical development with details and construction documents for AeV architects in the extension project of Explora - the children’s museum of Rome in via Flaminia, and designed several commercial spaces and retail stores like Home Unusual Store and Exist fashion lines for Luigi Valente Design as well as interiors and residential projects for private clients.
We have a solid background in building construction and technical drawing having worked as consultants and technology specialists for architecture firms and design companies in preliminary designs, construction phases as well as following the design process in every step until the client presentations.
