The A-Factor

We are architects, thinkers, engineers and designers.

We join forces with experts from diverse fields, to deliver sustainable projects for forward thinking clients.

Our culture pushes us to explore the concept of “factual sustainability” that allows us to welcome complexity, warying of slogans and oversimplification of key sustainable-design concepts.
Collecting, processing and transforming contextual data into integrated architectural ideas means to design on a case-by-case basis, tackling environmental, economical and social challenges towards a more factual paradigm of circularity and a renewed harmony with nature.



We believe in data-supported beauty

our approach acknowledges the importance of making informed decisions based on empirical information and critical creative thinking with the objective of shaping platforms for social interaction

On April 24th 2024 the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Urbanism and State Property of Montenegro announced that group lead by the Milan/ London-based practice a-fact and composed by LAND, Maffeis Engineering and Charcoalblue has won the International Competition for “conceptual architectural design of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Natural History Museum and Park of Arts & Culture with associated cultural facilities” in Podgorica (Montenegro).


The winning proposal “creates an iconic architecture that connects culture and nature by rejoining the Morača river with the city. The new museum district and the park of arts & culture will spark Podgorica’s social life, becoming a vibrant and dynamic public attractor.


The buildings promote a new paradigm of sustainability by encouraging the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces and by exploring the contemporary use of local materials and construction techniques.” according to the architects Andrea Rossi, Giovanni Sanna and Pierluigi Turco, co-founders of a-fact.

On March 14th 2024 a-fact had the pleasure of teaching “A world of modules” at SOUx Milano, a cutting-edge architecture and design school for kids aged 6 to 9 years old with diverse backgrounds.


The kids had the opportunity to experiment with us the importance of proportions, working hands-on their personal vision of cities, buildings, apartments and rooms, giving it a unique creative touch, pure and free from day-to-day constraints.


Special thanks to SOUx wonderful staff and, in particular, to Caterina Malinconico for inviting us. It’s been such a wonderful and powerful experience to get inspired by kid’s creativity and we can’t wait to come back!
