studio 8 1/2 home
Via Giuseppe Bovara, 23900 Lecco (LC)
We are trying to represent our space as an inter- and multidisciplinary studio, occupied in architecture and interior design and closely connected with the contemporary research practices. The two founding partners are Vladislav Kostadinov (1984) and Antoniya Valkanova (1986). We graduated first from University of Architecture in Sofia and later from Politecnico di Milano and Università degli studi di Napoli. The studio was founded primary in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, back in 2011, and since 2015 it operates entirely from the city of Lecco, Italy. We strongly believe in connecting our design with the surrounding background and context, as well as presenting solutions with roots in the historical, social and architectural memory of the place.
