Established in 1999 by Stefano Gri and Piero Zucchi, GEZA Architettura is a studio lead by curiosity and passion, aiming for the research on the synthesis of Ideas, Beauty and Functionality.
According to GEZA the project implies to design the SPACE (Architecture) within its ENVIRONMENT (light and landscape) through the seasons of TIME. Our architectures strive for new meanings while creating new identities.
Over the years the studio specialized in architecture projects, urban planning, interior and product design, developing a signature style that is based on a unique point of view and sensibility in regard to the context, the materiality of the details and human-centered solutions. Always towards a poetic dimension.
The main focus of the studio is around the industrial architecture in relation to the landscape, in a new way of conceiving the work spaces. A few worthy examples are Furla Headquarters (Furla Progetto Italia, 2021), Pratic (Pratic 1.0, 2011 + Pratic 2.0, 2018), Faber Cylinders (2013) and Bosch/Freud (2018).
Furthermore another mention must be done for the currently-in-progress works such as the the award-winning project Silk-Faw EV (2021), Capua1880 Headquarters (2021) and Pratic 3.0 (2021).
In addition to the residential and housing projects, GEZA designed the setting-up of New Craft Exhibition (2016, Fabbrica del Vapore, Triennale di Milano) and Casa della Musica (2010, Cervignano del Friuli).
Amongst the multiple international awards, GEZA has recently been awarded with the Archicture MasterPrize, the twelfth edition of Dedalo Minosse International Prize for Commissioning a Building and as popular-choice winner for the 10th edition of the Architizer A+Awards (Mixed-Use-L>25.000sq. ft category) with Furla Progetto Italia. The latter award had previously been received with Pratic 2.0 in 2019. In 2017 it won the American Architecture Prize, while obtaining the Italian Architect Jury Special Award organized by the National Council of Architects in 2015. In 2012 the project Pratic won the Special Award for Private Customers (Gold Medal for Italian Architecture - Triennale di Milano), taking part to the XIII Venice Biennale in the same year. In 2013 the same project lead the studio to the finals for the Mies van der Rohe Award - European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture.
