SG/A Sedicigradi is a young and dynamic design focused studio, working internationally on a wide range of projects, both new build and within the context of historic buildings, at all scales, from private homes to masterplans, from initial concept to completion.
We always strive to combine innovation and research with a professional completeness, capable of responding to complex programs at any scale, aware of the responsibility to the city and society, the environment and economic cycle of growth and re-use.
We are equally local and global – our interest in nowadays global sensible topics are combined with a design rooted in a deep understanding and sense of place to create architectures uniquely tailored to their contexts.
Our approach is holistic - each project is developed by fully coordinated multidisciplinary teams, which are able to provide the specific needed skillsets, through an inquisitive process of design testing and refinement. This attitude has developed into a methodology enabling us to explore new territories and forge a vision encompassing social, urban, environmental, functional and formal questions.
The practice is committed to deliver thoughtfully conceived, detailed and timeless architecture for forward-thinking clients with a similar passion for design. Each new project is a unique challenge that we deal with through rigorous collaboration and sharing with our clients, supported by mutual trust and communication.
We support them in unlocking the full potential of their sites and making change happen.
