Our projects have multiple inspirations and references

We bring insight to projects thanks to influences from various fields.

With a multi-disciplinary outlook, our approach changes from time to time. As architects, designers and creatives, we know that ideas can come from anywhere, and the best ones are often those that pop up unexpectedly thanks to hybridization with other fields. Our inspirations and concepts can come from anywhere, a quality that we value in our projects.

The b612 architecture studio team is always pushing to discover something new, without being confined or boxed into one field, but rather roaming as freely as possible between all that we personally or professionally care about. The individuality, inclinations and interests of each person become fuel for the team’s ideas.

In addition to the underlying concept, each project is also shaped by the way we envision design. A design method should adapt to each project, to each idea, and not the other way around. To us, methodology is a spark, a springboard from which to see things from a different perspective, a way to consider each project from multiple points of view, shaping it in its unique identity instead of forcing it into a predefined style.

Constant research is our defining feature

We continuously investigate materials, technologies and interdisciplinary influences.

At b612 architecture studio, the research process has two different meanings that take shape during two distinct moments. We study everything that could potentially bring insight to projects and concepts, with no specific purpose other than keeping our minds sharp and fresh with ideas.

Then, during the design phase, our research focuses on topics necessary for the complete development of the project. To us, this means having a comprehensive view of the whole process and its requirements, with insight coming from multiple fields. Our research lets us control all components and, in particular, every detail of a given project.

Architecture is a matter of detail for us; it is the foundation from which we start balancing formal issues with functional ones. Each of our projects takes shape while we ponder its details, its realization.

Hence the importance we give to details, or rather, how details work together. Our approach to the design process never takes place through a mere succession of increasingly detailed scales. Even the first drawing in a project already contains all considerations on detail, on how something will be done, because ensuring the feasibility of each idea is of paramount importance to us. We also know the extent to which details shape the final appearance of each project. This is why the ability to adapt the design ‘to scale’ are already present from the beginning, contributing to a harmonious final design.


Our goal is to create integrated projects:

the design of the light and space, and the choice of materials are components that shape and influence each other.

We like to look at all connections between various elements, between all components that shape the project. It is from the observation, study and definition of these connections that the identity of each specific project emerges.

Because that is what architecture is all about and what an “integrated project” means to us. The ability to shape spaces and volumes, to calibrate light while balancing it with materials and functions is what allows us to create the settings of daily life, which must consider all components simultaneously. This approach leads to harmonious development, avoiding the incorrect, or at least fallacious, process of merely joining parts at a certain moment of the process.

We always keep in mind that tensions between the project’s different components are what actually shape it, both from a functional and an aesthetic point of view. The whole process is therefore not linear but requires a continuous verification of the relationships between the various components, in a more integrated—rather than hierarchical—way.

The final result of this process is a project that has characteristics that cannot be traced back to the sum of single parts but to the relationship, or tension, between them.

This is b612 architecture studio’s signature.
