fds takes its first steps in 2010, soon after university studies, with the desire to create a laboratory where to bring out and test new ideas. The name “officina” is already a clear statement of intent to transform the architectural profession, in a physical place and the ideal of "doing". Workplace but also and above learning space through the artistic act understood no more as an abstract idea but as modeling of reality. officina di architettura was created with the belief that good design can only be the result of a process of dialogue with the people and listening to the needs of the place. The idea, the invention is always the result of the suggestion that comes from a land full of stimuli and resources from the point of view landscaped, historical and cultural heritage, what need to know how to listen. We are firmly convinced that it is not possible to "architecture", think about a living space without the affirmation of an unbreakable bond with the place destined to host him. Here then is the architecture, the formation of a language that is understood and appreciated becomes first search, where the term "research" refers precisely its etymological meaning, from the Latin "circare", as those who want to find something. Thus, the architecture assumes universal character and can really fulfill the social responsibility that has always had. In attention to detail and love that stands the added value of Made in Italy and our work.
