DESIGNING METHOD

Every project is a new experience, a combination of several factors. Each one has its own identity. The aesthetic criterion arises from the analysis of the context, from the confrontation with the client.
There are no dogmas or styles: the needs and problems are answered in the best possible way.
A quote from the famous Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri:

Rather, it is a question of giving more emphasis to research, rather than obeying fixed rules

It means that, only after a deep analysis solutions are developed and problems are solved with technic and aesthetic together.

 

COMMUNICATION WITH THE CLIENTS

The client is consulted and involved not only in the designing phase but also throughout the whole process.
Each technical and related to realization communication is transmitted and explained to the client, in a way to be able to understand and decide (costs, technical or aesthetic solutions).

A “participatory turnkey”, because you don’t have to worry about anything but at the same time you are not excluded from any choice. Problems can happen, the difference lies in the way of dealing with them.
The goal is always to find the best solution with the available budget.
