Studio Insula architettura e ingegneria
Insula architettura e ingegneria s.r.l. is an engineering and architecture firm established in 2002 by architects Eugenio Cipollone and Paolo Orsini, and engineer Roberto Lorenzotti. The practice has completed projects throughout Italy. Current projects include the construction of a residential complex on brownfield land in Via Ponti Rossi, Capodimonte (Naples). The firm is also currently working on projects in Germany as well as Turkey, where it recently won the competition for a transfer point and an archaeology park in Yenicapi. Insula has also opened a new office in the Turkish capital.
The firm was selected, along with nine other groups, for the second stage of the competition for the redevelopment of the Bari rail yards, which are currently being decommissioned. Insula is involved in all the different phases of construction, from feasibility studies to final plans and worksite management. Through a well-established network of consultants, it is able to take on complex projects, coordinating the contributions of each specialized area.
Insula regularly participates in educational programs at numerous Italian and foreign universities, holding workshops, seminars, and lecture series on architectural and urban design. It has a well-established relationship of collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture at Università di Roma 3 in particular. Insula is based in the Ostiense district of Rome. Its 200 square metre open plan headquarters includes a large work space, library, meeting room, archive, and model room. In 2008, Insula adopted ISO 9001/2008 quality management.
