Our Approach

Since its re-foundation, which took place in 2001, when the baton passed to the second generation of architects, the studio has been involved in the design and construction management of numerous works for some of the most important Italian real estate groups.

Over the years 3C+t has gained extensive experience in the management and production of complex projects, for which it has dealt with all the architectural design phases, from concept design to construction management. The studio has the skills to guarantee the Client a support service in the confrontation phase with the cognizant authorities during the bureaucratic process aimed at issuing the required authorizations.

The studio has the expertise to provide the full range of architectural design services, including interior design, urban planning, urban design, landscape design and marinas.

The working method is based on the principle of participatory design, in which clients, engineers and consultants give their contribution during the various project phases, from the beginning and for the entire duration of the design process. This implies an interaction between the different professionals and their experiences and skills, in order to determine the best possible solution in terms of plans, projects and strategies.

3C+t’s approach to design is based on the assumption that the creative process is not linear, but that it requires architects to be able to think and draw at different scales, taking into account every detail during the development of the design with an overall vision, regardless of the project phase.


There are a number of illustration techniques we utilize depending on the final purpose, from conceptual sketches to highly detailed and realistic renderings, animated walk-through / flyby and massing studies. A rendering can convey a concept or present an image of the finished project. It can also assist the Client in obtaining financing, pre-leasing or attracting investors.


We are committed to a sustainable, energy efficient and ecological design approach, and we are aware that responsible design requires attention to sustainable and environmentally sound solutions. Design solutions based on these assumptions will constitute an added value for the Client over the years.


We start all projects by identifying any existing constraints and meeting, where necessary, the cognizant authorities. We define the capacity of the site, setbacks, zoning requirements and limitations. In order to draw up a shared project, we take part in any presentations to authorities and neighborhood associations.


The way we design does not follow a rigid formula or standard process. We use a dialectical process aimed at finding the most suitable solutions. We work directly with Clients in a collaborative effort to meet their needs and achieve their goals.


Interior design completes the project and plays a significant role in defining the image of the building. Our design team collaborates with the Client in defining the image and how to achieve it through the selection of colors, materials, textures, furnishings and finishes.


A properly done construction project is essential in the bidding phase to obtain bids that will not change during construction, in the construction phase to ensure that the design intent is communicated clearly and concisely and, finally, for a proper maintenance throughout the life cycle of the building. To achieve this level of clarity, we prepare our documents in close coordination with various consultants, hold regular meetings and joint reviews and periodic quality control checks from start to completion.


During the construction phase, we are available to answer any questions and any doubts the contractor may have, to conduct site observation visits, to monitor progress, to prepare any required change orders, to review shop drawings.


With years of experience in dealing with the various administrations, we have acquired a thorough understanding of planning, zoning and building regulations requirements, and we are thus able to interpret and translate administrative issues in order to present projects that comply with the regulations and can be quickly approved.
