MAP studio

Magnani Pelzel Associated Architects


MAP studio is an international agency for architecture, urbanism and design, born in 2004 by the collaboration between the architects Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel, since 2010 as associated architects firm. MAP studio is led by Francesco Magnani and Traudy Pelzel with architects and modelmakers working in based in the historical centre of Venice in a office with a small garden near Rialto bridge. MAP studio carries out assignments and combines public and private professional activities and research dealing with architectural design and urban renewal and transformation of existing buildings, interior design and exhibition design. MAP studio projects are always developed from the specifics of the site, of the program and of the client. Considering the architecture to be a process of constant dialogue we usually involve experts and consultants in every stage of the design process. Built works range from the noted renovation of the Torre di Porta Nuova in the Venice Arsenale, which presents a benchmark building for the renovation design of historical buildings, to a custom set of exhibition designs. A whole series of projects for private and public clients are currently under way in Italy.
