She has founded her own studio. It’s an international architectural practice, based in central London and in Tuscany, Italy, with extensive experience in the fields of private, public and utility buildings on different scale levels and design. The studio undertakes a wide range of projects across the residential and commercial sectors including retail, interior design, extensions, refurbishment, construction detail design, planning applications, project management, yacht design and exhibit design, with the ability to handle challenging briefs in a variety of locations and contexts.
The philosophy is to work closely with the clients to allow a project to evolve whilst addressing the brief and the budget. Building designs are developed to be innovative, collaborative and environmentally sensitive.
It’s a team of young, qualified and very creative architects driven by a vivid imagination.
Cristina Cipolli's approach is to achieve Eco-effective design solutions. Nature, in its multiple expressions and materials, represents to her a source of inspiration also in architectural terms. “What makes that challenge unique, however, is the ability to achieve results through original, non-conventional, and creative thinking.”
Projects have been published in architectural magazines.
