Studio Marae is an architectural practice founded by Luca Baldazzi, Damiano Finetti and Andrea Scognamiglio in 2019, based in Switzerland.
Marae is our sea that represent the openess and the richness of influences that characterised our approach to architecture.
Marae is the fil rouge that guides us during every creativ process, from the smaller to the bigger scale. In particular we have always been interested in the compositional character of this discipline. How volumes, materials and colours come toghether creating and defining our spaces for living. In every project we tried to reach a deep and meaningful complexity, followed at the same time by clearness and functionality. This is achieved throught a long and intense process of trying and exploring a wide range of options with different techniques and means of representation.
