SP architecture workshop is an architecture and design practice, started as a collaboration between Chiara Schina and Fabrizio Primavera.

 

We focus our passion and experience to develop new ideas on a various range of projects, combining theoretical research to practical professional experience. Each are autonomous work areas, which simultaneously inform one another.

 

We believe in an integrated and collaborative approach, promoting an innovative use of materials and construction techniques. We are committed to deliver a sustainable and socially responsible architecture, whilst promoting functional and finely crafted design solutions.
