Claudio Nardi Architects is an Italian-based practice that provides a high-end architectural and interior design service to a discerning clientele. Claudio Nardi has assembled an international team of dedicated professionals who continue to push the boundaries of both architecture and design. Our Head Office is in Florence and is supported by a network of studios in Krakow, London, Hong Kong, Istanbul and New York, enabling the delivery of a seamless design product to clients worldwide. With our extensive international reach, we have designed architectural projects for a wide range of commissions including government, corporate, retail, entertainment and residential clients. Amongst our recent projects are the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) in Krakow, built around the former Schindler Factory building, the new Town Hall of Krakow, the Museum of Shipyards Industry (MUCA) in Monfalcone near Trieste, the Mandragora Publishing House Headquarters in Florence, the Port Authority Headquarters in Marina di Carrara and the Vertex Tower (office building) in Amman, Jordan, as well as many private residences in Dubai, London, Madrid, New York, Parma, Rome and Tel Aviv. Within the fashion industry, clients include Dolce & Gabbana, Gianfranco Ferrè, Valentino, Malo, Tod’s, Luisa via Roma and many others.

Italy is a country that inspires creativity – the history, the light, the traditions of the artisans – these are the reasons we work from Florence, the heart of the Renaissance. Our early projects were often within the historic city-centres of Tuscany. This has nurtured a deep understanding and appreciation for the need to balance the sometimes conflicting sensibilities of practical design with the environment aesthetics. We see ourselves in partnership with you, our client. After the initial consultation, we will make a thorough, in-depth study of the site. This is where we consider how we can best match your brief to the local vernacular: the culture, and the climate within which we are to work. The smallest design details are thoughtfully considered so that we are able to resolve any challenge and offer the best solution with the careful balance of solid and void, and light, material and texture. Our roots are embedded in the rich traditions of ‘Mediterranean’ and ‘Rationalism’ but we evolve constantly, drawing on new influences, materials and technologies. We strive to produce architecture that is both global and local, whilst remaining unique and expressive.  We understand that for our clients it needs to be as impressive close-up as it is from a distance and, above all, we believe that we produce results that we, and you, can be proud to leave as a legacy to be appreciated by future generations.


He is involved in architecture projects, both public and private, in Italy and abroad.

He continually addresses and considers essential the theme of transformation, the relationship between innovation and pre-existing structures, the interplay of function and form, and the connection between form and communication. Each project, born from instinct, combines a sensitive awareness of the overall vision and attention to detail, materials, innovative technologies, and timeless techniques in a careful and passionate dialogue with tradition.

Large-scale architecture and “minor” spaces, whether domestic, commercial, or exhibition spaces, deserve the same careful and enthusiastic approach, in an intense, continuous, and valuable knowledge transfer.

In Mediterranean culture and Italian rationalism, the foundations are laid for a language that integrates new elements derived from the interaction with new materials and technologies, new or ancient places, or even non-places, and constantly changing functions and themes.

The projects, both in the realm of institutional and private architecture and interior architecture, have received numerous national and international publications, recognitions, and awards and have been the subject of exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
