The firm Andrea Trebbi Architetto opened in Bologna in 1980. It is involved in architecture, planning, interior design, design, and lighting, and is equally involved in restoration and new builds. A primary focus of the firm is to improve the architectural environment by seeing architecture as something external to humans, with our wellbeing depending on its quality. Reflecting this approach is the recognition of surface parking facilities as being incompatible with cities and the necessity of placing urban infrastructure underground. The studio is involved in a broad spectrum of projects but principally focuses on residential projects, hotels, healthcare facilities, football stadiums, and car park buildings. Reflecting this, it deals with a wide range of public and private clients, including through competitions. Every project carried out by the firm extends to every aspect, including the design of furniture and other elements. This provides constant opportunities for research aimed at identifying the highest quality levels achievable for every project.
