the studio

A hectare is the unit of measurement we have given ourselves to immerse our work as architects in nature, to cultivate and nurture our creations in harmony with it and its elements, under the primary assumption that the architect’s profession is not that of a specialist in construction or land management, but rather as the art of dwelling.

Founded in 1990 by Edoardo Milesi, the Archos studio has always been oriented towards sustainable construction, shaping the environment through a “strong” perspective of reality by harmoniously combining environmental concern with social commitment. Each project arises from the experience of a diverse team of collaborators, united by a common passion and the ability to pursue a consistent method and a shared vision. This unity of purpose is tangibly manifested in our works, which are the result of continuous technological research to address contemporary challenges.

Our projects range from the conservative restoration of national monuments to large-scale urban transformations, from industrial complexes to advanced tertiary environments, from private residences to facilities for tourism and culture, from educational spaces to places of worship and entertainment. In every context, the goal remains to define spaces as places of interaction, taking into consideration social, political, and economic dynamics, and shaping them to reflect the needs and behaviors of people.
Many works received international recognition and were featured in specialized magazines. Thanks to the public competitions in which the studio has constantly participated since its foundation and the private works it has created, which have won prestigious awards, the studio has gained international notoriety.

The activities of the studio have always been characterized by research and constant participation in cultural debate about architecture, so much so that over the years the studio has gone hand in hand with a publishing house which publishes, among other things, ArtApp, a periodical magazine about art and culture published since 2009. In 2014, Edoardo Milesi founded the association Scuola Permanente dell’Abitare (SPdA – Permanent School of Living) with headquarters in Bergamo and Siena at OCRA (Officina Creativa dell’Abitare – Creative Workshop of Living), Montalcino, an incubator of ideas with an open-minded attitude towards a different concept of architecture based on an exchange of ideas with different disciplines and different fields of knowledge examined and questioned during activities involving people: workshops, residential Summer Schools, conventions, refresher courses, exhibitions and events.
