Studio
AFSa is a Florence based architecture studio founded in 2017 by Antonio Acocella, Alessandro Falaschi and Pietro Seghi.
The practice takes its origins in a common academic background at Università degli Studi di Firenze and merges international experiences in top-level practices among Italy, Switzerland and UK, where the three founders have collaborated in a wide range of architectural, interior and landscape projects.
AFSa blends methods and skills learnt in various design firms, developing solutions tailored to specific design occasions, based on a collaborative approach and expressed through a contemporary architectural language, clear and essential.
