Ferrari Gianoncelli have studios in Locarno and Lugano and develop integrated architecture, interior, product and landscape design projects for private individuals, retail and industry. The studio was opened after years of professional experience of the two partners in the fields of public and private Swiss architecture and of Italian interiors and furniture on the international scale. Our work varies from interventions on the dimensions of a single object to interventions on major urban complexes. The approach is to create tailored interventions where the structure, interior, objects and landscape integrate and interact as different points of a single harmonious work that is evocative of the functional and emotional art of living through all the scales of the project.
