Who we are and
What we do

Giacomo Mezzadri and Joana Oliveira are Mezzo Atelier, a young Italian/Portuguese architectural and design practice working both as a studio and as a practical laboratory. Since 2013, the two architects, with different professional backgrounds, run a multidisciplinary atelier developing architectural projects; interior design; temporary structures and self produced objects and furniture.

Inspired by Bauhaus’ concept of global art, their goal is to design spaces and objects as a hole, achieving a complete customisation for each project and clients. The control of each step of the design process is fundamental, working from the concept until the production and realisation of the pieces on their workshop, whenever the project’s scale makes it possible. This approach to the design practice makes it possible to depend less on third parties and develop hand-made and unique pieces. Fascinated by craftsmanship, they bring to life traditions trough their contemporary pieces and associate ancient methods with new technologies.
