/About

Claudio Nardi Architects is an Italian-based practice that provides a high-end architectural and interior design service to a discerning clientele.
He has assembled a team of professionals including architects and designers, based in Florence, who continue to push the boundaries of both architecture and design.
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 in Florence, the heart of the Renaissance.
Our early projects were often within the historic city-centers 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.
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

Services

The studio deals with architecture projects, public and private, in Italy and abroad to a discerning clientele. We see ourselves in partnership with you, our client. After the initial consultation, we will make an 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.
