OUR PHILOSOPHY: PASSION, EXPERTISE AND DIVERSITY
At UPA Italia, we believe in putting our immense love of Italian architecture at the heart of everything we do.
No matter what the project or who the client is, we always give everything to create architectural masterpieces that never go out of style.
To that end, we’ve formed our philosophy around three central pillars:
Our passion for timeless Italian architecture is what gives us the focus and drive to put our all into our work. We live and breathe design work that inspires, and from the planning stage to the end product, we’ll work with you and your business, crafting your ideas into a building that achieves everything you want and more.
With over 20 years’ experience working at the highest level of the Italian architectural industry, we’ve got the expertise, the know-how and the training to design buildings that always stand the test of time.
It’s not just about the art though – we also know how to construct engineering solutions that last for the long run.
We think that the best architectural firms draw their talent from a diverse pool of architects. With that in mind, our company is made up of gifted individuals from a range of art disciplines, backgrounds and countries to give us the edge in bringing unforgettable architecture to the table.
These three pillars help us stand out among Italian architectural firms, giving us a philosophy that makes us one of the best options on the market.
