Mission
Archingegno, founded in 1998, is an interdisciplinary team capable of facing the many themes present in small and large scale architectural projects.

Each project is a mission to constantly renew our creativity, which, coupled with our vast experience, allows us to satisfy and even surpass clients’ expectations.
We consider architecture an intertwining of historical and contemporary elements capable of producing something very special.  Our history has taught us to keep cultural research alive and to integrate into our projects the most advanced technologies, artisan skills and the ever present vision of Italian design.

To us, the control and quality of natural and artificial light represent a specific theme; we treat light as a “substance” with which we can give shape and characterize environments, volumes and materials.

We have built our reputation on the quality of our work and on the attention paid to detail.  Every single aspect, from the choice of materials to the physical and cultural context is taken into consideration in order to create a quintessential space.

Our ability to produce exceptionally beautiful architecture has been recognized by various national and international awards.

“...this working vision, pragmatic as well as poetic, which is able to read the historical complexity of a place, and at the same time, can summarize and re-write its characteristics with lightness and creative independence, very much reminds us of Carlo Scarpa’s characteristics, a great master of Venetian and Italian modernism.  The inheritance of his lesson, humble in the observation of places and ambitious in the search for form, finds a new outcome in the theater projected by Carlo Ferrari and Alberto Pontiroli, who have inserted the ancient art of Venetian late-impressionists on the solid branch of architectural, artistic, international and contemporary research.”
