Gian Marco Giovanoli and Armin Sader met during their joint studies in Innsbruck and Florence. They graduated together with honors, obtaining the highest marks for their thesis on the railway area of Bolzano, under the supervision of Prof. Marino Moretti. In 2012 they founded the architecture studio ASAGGIO, acronym of the two names and literal expression of their philosophy, embodied by an aesthetic-architectural concept as contemporary as it is shrewd. A mutual inspiration which, through the many projects carried out together, has evolved into a common path called ASAGGIO. A turning point towards a new perspective on architecture, in which each project places the individual at the center.
Every project has its own soul. In the course of realizing numerous projects, this mutual inspiration evolved into their common path as ASAGGIO – a turn toward a whole new way of thinking about architecture that focuses on the individual of each project in a special way. The love and passion for design and creation goes hand in hand with the urge to realize each project according to the standards of the highest quality. However, the understanding of quality is not exhausted in an innovative materiality and execution. “It’s about giving each project its common thread,” going beyond design and materials, it thus becomes “a very human subject” that requires great subtlety and depth. In summary, the architect duo stands behind its conception of modern and holistic architecture: “We do not want to sell a style, but a statement”.
