SIGNO: our Architecture Studio in Milan

Signo, a meeting point between architecture and design, was born with the intent to combine different skills and competencies in shared projects that aim to bring value through emotions.

Craftsmanship and innovative excellence in businesses intersects the design in a historial space, which becomes a kind of cenacle in which to find the extraordinary union between both art and science, and humanist and technical fields.
