AGL architects was founded by Guido Lotti in December 2013 and is currently working not only in Italy but also on many residential projects in Greece, Switzerland and France. The practice works internationally providing full architectural and interior design, masterplanning, furniture design services for both public and private sectors. Our diverse portfolio includes private villas, apartments, medical offices, retail, seaside promenades, port facilities, sport compounds and landscape interventions.
Our professional service covers the whole design cycle, from the concept to the realization of the opera.
From 1992 to 2001 GL worked in Aldo Luigi Rizzo’s office for the realization of the new Genoa Business School in the old harbour and for the new Genoa Ferry Terminal, both completed in 2000.
In 1996 Guido Lotti was one of the founders of Studio 4 Architetti Associati, working with the practice until 2013.
Since Aldo Rizzo retired in 2001, Guido Lotti (with Studio4) has been working intensely for Stazioni Marittime Spa (the company managing cruises and ferries traffic in Genoa) and for the Port Authority, realizing the S.I.T. (Integrated System for ferry Terminal) a network of small service buildings (elevators and staircases, toilettes, bar etc.) around the main ferry station (five have been already built).
From 2000 to 2004 Guido Lotti (with Studio4) worked with David Chipperfield (DCA) participating to the international competition of Ponte Parodi wharf (Genoa 2000), realizing the new Dolce e Gabbana shop (Genoa 2002) and refurbishing the D&G’s new 5 luxury villas in Portofino (2001-2004). Thanks to this experience the practice improved its skills in international working methods and design concepts, collaborating not only with DCA but also with some of the best Italian architects of interior, furniture and lighting design like Ferruccio Laviani, Piero Castiglioni and Rodolfo Dordoni.
