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 – as Hans Rosling says in Factfulness – 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 do this conscious of our responsibility – as architects – to imagine and shape flexible cities, buildings and spaces able to house a thriving future and its possible evolutions.



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
