A++ HUMAN SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE
 

#WEAREHUMAN

#WEAREHUMAN

We are a big family around the world: Switzerland (Zürich and Lugano), Italy (Como), USA (Miami and New York), Arab Emirates (Dubai) Moscow and Shanghai.

These are homes to our multicultural offices.

Architects, engineers, interior designers, product designers, web designers. The keyword here is “multidisciplinary”. A team with so many skills guarantees A++ full control over all the stages of a project: from the initial concept to the fit out; from the landscape project to the interior design, our team works together to create a continuos and balanced workflow.

Through a lively exchange of knowledge, information and ideas, the creative process can reach its maximum expression, because it includes all the individual personalities that had imagined it together.
The sentence “unity is strength” could not have been more true and we, united, are stronger than ever.

Paolo Colombo

Paolo Colombo was born in Milan on May 21st 1970 and graduated from the Polytechnic of Milan in July 1998.

Founder and creative mind behind A++, he has built its international reputation by designing and building architecture spanning from hotels to restaurants, residences to commercial spaces, inspired and heavily rooted on the broadest vision of sustainability which becomes the center and reference in the development of his design; with an architecture inspired and strongly centered on the concept of well-being, an emotional stage mediated between art and function, with attention to detail and functionality.

 

In each realization it is expressed the need for a profound and ongoing dialogue with what exists in its surroundings and its interior, developing a new concept of environment, design and space combined with the material research aimed at finding a an “active” sustainability where every element has its function and where space serves as a stage to showcase the combination of elements unexpected presences, to develop new sensory emotions in search the ultimate target of true sustainability: the wellbeing of the inhabitant.

 

As creative director, he coordinates professionalism catalyzing various experiences and different cultures. Among the many national and international projects in the past, the island Falcon Island, a residential complex of 150 highly innovative and sustainable villas in the UAE, the master plan of a new urban settlement in an area of 7.5 million square meters in Albania, and many other development currently under construction in the world.

Carlo Colombo

Carlo Colombo is considered one of the most important international Architect and designer. He started his career right away with designing for top level brands. From this moment he collects hundreds of collaborations with the most important brands of design made in Italy like Antonio Lupi, Artemide, Bentley Home, Bugatti Home, Cappellini, Flou, Flexform, Franke, Giorgetti, iGuzzini, Penta, Poliform, Trussardi Casa, just to mention some. Beyond the design of products and furniture, Colombo also takes care of strategy and marketing for the companies, develops graphic projects and curates exhibitions, works as a consultant and Art Director.

The work that initially was concentrated on design and interior, extends progressively also in the field of constructions in Italy and abroad. In 2004 the architect is awarded as designer of the year; in 2009 wins an international competition for the design of the two multifunctional towers in Abu Dhabi and from 2011 teaches design at the De Tao Masters Academy of Beijing in China.

He receives a lot more awards all over the world, amongst them the Elle Decor International Design Award in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2011, the Good Design Award of the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and the Chicago Athenaeumin in 2009, in 2012 e 2014 e 2016 he wins the Red Dot Design Award, the Interior Innovation Award e and the iF design award. In 2017 in Switzerland he was awarded by the Italian Console with title of Knight of Order of Merit for Labour.

Also in 2017, he won the International Design Award in Los Angeles with the sculpture armchair “784”, and he was also included in the volume “100 Italian excellences”. In 2018 he receive the APDC*IDA – Excellence Design Awards and in 2019 he receive the Wallpaper* Design Award with ‘Albume’ coloured sinks for Antoniolupi. Today the studio deals with projects in large scale all over the world, from design to interior as well as architecture.
