Piuarch was established in 1996, the brainchild of its four founding partners Francesco Fresa, Germàn Fuenmayor, Gino Garbellini and Monica Tricario. Today approximately thirty architects and engineers, from all four corners of the world, work there headed by four partners and 11 associates. Piuarch’s projects take form from the recuperation of industrial areas to public buildings, complexes for residential and office purposes and town planning.
The encounter with Dolce&Gabbana marked the beginning of a collaboration that has been going on for ten years and that has resulted in the realization of more than forty boutiques all over the world, the Milan headquarters of Dolce&Gabbana, the Factory in Incisa in Val d’Arno and the requalification of the ex Metropol theatre, now multi-functional space for event and fashion shows. In recent years Piuarch has developed a number of projects abroad. It is active in Russia, where it has an operational office, and in Ukraine, with projects in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi and Kiev. Among the most recent projects: the Business Centre Quattro Corti in Saint Petersburg, the Headquarters of Bentini in Faenza and the office building in the area of Porta Nuova, Milan. Currently, under construction, the redevelopment of the former Caproni areas in Milan. Piuarch is “Italian Architect of the year 2013”, prize given by the National Order of the Architects and in collaboration with in Rome.
