Stefano is an Italian architect with over 13 years of professional experience in
mixed-use, master planning, civic architecture, urban design, and interior design. A graduate from the University of Florence, he has built his career working across China including Beijing and Hong Kong, where he currently leads the studio’s sustainability and wellness initiatives. His professional experience has enabled him to build a deep understanding of the China and Asia markets, the challenges faced by cities developing in this region, and the expectations of an ever changing population of future users. His design approach begins with analysis, to build an interaction of user behaviours and perspective. By grasping the point of view of future visitors or residents of a space or building, the design can then take shape. He also draws on market-driven research to gather insights into how to develop an effective and valuable design solution. Health and wellbeing are at the core of his ethos, which incorporates sustainable processes and technologies to create a solution that serves the communities and people he designs for. Ultimately his goal is to continually push boundaries, to redefine what’s possible, and set new benchmarks.
