The Grippo + Murzi design studio, founded by architects Marco Grippo and Matteo Murzi, is a young business that deals with Architecture. Their design approach is based on the concept of the architectural space, seen as a tangible reality to intervene on, in order to improve the perception and livability of an environment or a building. A fundamental role is played by the client, or more generally, by the users of the project. Starting from these considerations, Grippo + Murzi look for the right balance between functionality and aesthetics, which is only reachable through the engraving, the transformation and the remodeling of the architectural environment. The studio uses various scales of design, ranging from the finest detail to the overall project, from the research of the "tailoring project" - also through the creation of custom furniture – to the participation in international architecture competitions, with particular attention to the topic of the school and the sport environments. Their interest in sports environments leads Grippo + Murzi to a constant commitment and assiduous research of collaborations with foreign professional firms, with whom they compare and establish new connections.
