Based in Bergamo, Studio Capitanio Architetti deals mainly with urban architecture and design at all levels, investigating languages and methodologies in search of the quality of contemporary living spaces. Remo Capitanio, founder of the studio, graduated from the faculty of Architecture of Politecnico in Milan in 2003. During his academic studies, he served an apprenticeship with Auer+Weber+Partner in Stuttgart. From the very beginning the studio’s activity is centred on urban requalification and public spaces, with a number of project completed in this areas. Always alert to changes in the local community and environment, this studio demonstrates a strong, sensitive awareness of the context. Pursuing aesthetic, functional, financial and technical qualities allowed the studio to develop important public requalification projects such as Lecco waterfront, Piazzale degli Alpini in Bergamo, the historic centres of Trescore Balneario, Dalmine and Villongo.
Over time, the studio became involved with projects where the wellbeing of the community is central to the design: the Rowing Centre on lake Pusiano, the Community services Centre in Nembro, the playschool in Alzano and the Contemporary art Gallery being designed for the city of Bergamo. The studio took part in a number of competitions, focusing on projects on regeneration of urban public spaces, and was awarded acknowledgements and prizes. Specifically: THE PLAN Award 2021, first prize for the restoration and development of Ricovero Socio Assistenziale (nursing home/day centre) di Nembro (BG); BIGSEE Award 2021, first prize for the requalification works of Piazzale degli Alpini, Bergamo. His works were displayed at the Pisa Biennale of Architecture, in Tiblisi, at the “Italian Design Day in Georgia 2022” organized by the Italian Ambassy and published in national and international magazines.
