That’s right. A group of emus is called a “mob”. Learn somethin’ new every day.


Who are we?

Starting with just a couple of projects in Cavriago, Italy in 2009, we have invested a lot of time and heart into our company. We are constantly challenging ourselves to learn about new building science, design + construction methods, and innovative products.

We believe in the widely used maxim, ‘think globally, act locally’ an idea which we hope to bring to our practice through the study of international and local environmental and architectural conditions.

As such, we have been able to grow our client base, our platform of knowledge, and our international experience. We opened an office in Denver, CO, USA, in 2016, and we are constantly growing and changing with this complicated and exciting industry.
