Piovenefabi is an architecture studio founded by Ambra Fabi and Giovanni Piovene, based in Milan and Brussels. The studio produces architecture, urban research, territorial visions and design. Regardless of the size of the intervention, the commission or the client the office designs for the public, dealing with a shared context and its many, almost infinite, interpretations; spaces and objects thus become possible supports for personal and collective experiences.
