I was born in Monza, I’ve lived most of my life in the area of low Brianza, north of Milan, a place rich in wood craftsmen and good design. Unfortunately (or fortunately) during the few months of my summer school vacations, when I was still a boy, my father sent me to work in his friends craftman’s workshops, where I started to learn one of the most beautiful job in the world, that of wood carpenter. For various reasons I’ve never undertaken that job, but this very first work experiences have allowed me to develop excellent manual and inventiveness skills, precious qualities that I’m still cultivating in my profession as an junior architect and designer.
My interest in architecture begun during a long trip to Australia where I stayed in passive houses and admired extreme climates landscapes punctuated by buildings made with poor materials, such as earth, wood, straw, corrugated metal panels.
Passive houses ensure the thermal comfort simply through the rational use of natural elements, resulting extremely pleasurable to live with their cool and balanced rooms in summer, dry, warm and bright in winter, all through the minimum use of energy-consuming systems. These important sustainable models are for me at the base of my designs.
