SCAU Studio was established in 1980 as a Studio Consociato di Architettura ed Urbanistica following the coming together of Angelo Di Mauro, Angelo Vecchio, and Francesco Russo.
In 2000, the firm was overhauled as a provider of integrated design services, welcoming onboard two new partners, Koncita Santo and Alfio Cavallaro. In March 2002, it adopted ISO 9001 quality certification.
SCAU Studio has completed a large number of projects for the public and private sectors, always in a spirit of approaching each design as an entirely new creation. Every project is the product of ongoing research that brings together innovation and experimentation so as to constantly redefine the relationship between technology, functionality and aesthetics.
Over the years, SCAU Studio has developed a method and an approach to continuously redefine its unique architectural language so it can even take on the challenges of today’s globalized culture with professionalism. It has recently evolved yet again as an international player, developing its key areas of focus into new opportunities, and work in different cultural and landscape settings.
