Asastudio was founded in 1987 by Flavio Albanese with his brother Franco and was intended to be the natural development of the founder's multifarious interests.
During the firm's first thirty years in business, it saw its assignments grow and multiply, and its most important work has appeared in the major specialist magazines. Among the most significant interventions we mention the headquarter of Neores (2000), selected in 2003 in the shortlist for the Mies Van der Rohe Award, the headquarters of the new Vicenza Fair in 2008, the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sciacca for Rocco Forte Hotels in 2009, the new Rinascente in Palermo (2010), the multi-tasking and cultural compound of Lindower22 in Berlin and the HTM Hybrid Tower in Venice, both inaugurated in 2016.
In 2018 it became the reference studio for the design of the new Thom Browne stores all over the world, while in 2019 it inaugurated the work of the new Masterplan Villas for the Rocco Forte Verdura in Sciacca. In 2003 our Neores project was shortlisted for the Mies Van der Rohe Award. In 2005 and 2007 we took part in the International Architecture Biennale in Venice. In 2007 we were invited to participate in the concept scheme for the urban redevelopment of Beijing's city centre. Asastudio's president is Flavio Albanese.
Franco Albanese is the technical manager and CEO. Piero Corradin is Head of Projects. With a library containing more than 15,000 volumes and a project culture that traverses and mixes different disciplines, our fields of expertise are architecture, design and visual research. Multitasking, multidisciplinary, multiscale. This is asastudio.
