MAP studio

Magnani Pelzel Associated Architects


MAP studio is an international office for architecture, urbanism and design, which began in 2004 with the union of architects Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel, who then founded their joint architectural firm in  2010, located in the historic center of Venice in a beautiful workspace in the second main floor of palazzo Foscarini in front of Carmini church.

MAP studio carries out assignments and combines public and private professional activities with research, focusing on architectural design and urban renewal as well as the transformation of existing buildings, interior design and exhibition design.

MAP studio projects are always tailored the specifics of the site, the program, and the client.  We consider architecture to be a process of constant dialogue; thus, we involve experts and consultants in every stage of the design process.

MAP Studio´s works has been published in several international architectural publications.

Completed works range from the noted renovation of the Porta Nuova Tower in the Venice Arsenale, which presents a benchmark building for the renovation design of historic buildings, to a custom set of exhibition designs and new buildings and several restorations.

A whole series of projects for private and public clients is currently underway.
