Giancarlo, Cristiano Gemma. Studio Gemma

Studio Gemma Design is an architecture studio founded by architects Giancarlo and Cristiano Gemma in 2002. They created the associated studio with the aim of combining engineering and architectural approaches in a complete and high-quality professional offer.

Since then the studio has been in charge of design, construction management, security, consulting and real estate promotion, maintaining its initial intention.

The approach is based on the search for the right balance between functionality and design: this is why we can propose efficient solutions that constitute the true added value of any real estate investment.
