New Website

We are proud to announce the new website is on'line now. We will use this brand'new layout to update all future projects, news, events and everything involves the office of ABCGarchitettura.
In order to celebrate our office we first thank to our guardian angels: two statues in our office balcony. One of them, was photographically captured in this summerfull Fall in all her divine appeal.





ABCG architettura is an architectural practice founded by four Italian architects graduated at Accademia di Architettura of Mendrisio (Switzerland)
studying under international masters as Mario Botta, Aires Mateus, Sergison Bates and Peter Zumthor.
The office is currently involved in a wide array of projects at different scales, ranging from urban planning, housing, regeneration and extension

social and economic aspects of sustainability.
