The design practice was founded in 2009 by Professor Alberto Breschi, Claudia Giannoni, and Serafina Amoroso, who left in 2012.
The practice is rooted in the theoretical research of the Florentine radical architecture movement Zziggurat founded in 1968 by Alberto Breschi, Roberto Pecchioli and Giuliano Fiorenzoli. Breschistudio combines to this theoretical research a professional integrity capable of undertaking the many aspects regarding architectural and urban projects, from those concerning the conception and development of the project to those related to construction and management.
In 2011, Breschistudio associati together with Studio Tecnico – AC (prof.A.Vignoli, ing C.Consorti) and Technology 2000 srl founded ASI progetti Integrati srl to deliver end-to-end real estate projects along with engineering expertise.
From 2012 to 2017, Alberto Breschi and Claudia Giannoni led Breschistudio associati, and in this period the practice carried out some of the most significant projects.
The Studio has a consolidated network of specialised collaborators (structures, installations, landscape, restoration, art, graphics, economy).
