Studio

AFSa is an architecture firm based in Florence, directed by Antonio Acocella and Pietro Seghi, founded with Alessandro Falaschi in 2017.
The studio deals with architectural, interior and landscape design, through a contemporary and essential architectural language, based on continuity with tradition and on its constant rewriting through formal and material abstraction.
Since 2017, AFSa completes a series of internal residential, commercial and office projects, from design to construction phase, through specific solutions which are result of constant dialogue with clients, builders and artisans.
In parallel, the studio participates in international architecture and urban planning competitions, receiving awards in the form of prizes and publications. Recurring themes are the dialogue between old and new, educational buildings, places of worship.
Since 2013, the studio partners have been collaborating with the academic institutions (DIDA Unifi, Kent State University Florence, Syracuse University Florence, DICAR UniCT) through lectures, seminars, teaching and research.
