Architects from via Candiani 122, Milano, Italy
Our projects and our services are the result of a disciplinary work based cultural engagement and environmental awareness. We always start by a complex and multi-directional reading of the context, we define with precision the program, we develop original and functional ideas. We are fascinated by an artistic practice's didactic, poetic and civil idea and we take linguistic paradigms, morphological and programmatic by the "tradition of the modern", offering an alternative - to the more popular and approved models of purely stylistic mold and formalistic - cultural and planning trajectory.

We meet, we work and we prepare our projects on a train, into a museum or at a bar's table; it happens in Milan, London or Barcelona. More often we are in a construction site or in a workshop. All other times we like to get back in our studio with drawings and paintings on the walls, full of books and plants, with exposed brick walls and out towards an inner Milan old style courtyard: soft lighting and good music, computer technology and paper for sketches, concentration and team spirit.
