Founded in 2012, Officina Magisafi is an all-encompassing architectural and design practice operating from the heart of the tucked-away Val Seriana, moments away from Bergamo and Milan.
It is precisely from this unique location, their home, that Officina’s approach takes shape. They observe, study and collaborate with the traditionally-rooted knowledge and craftsmanship of the territory that, almost unexpectedly, use vanguardist machineries and some of the most innovative technologies. The strongly-felt Bergamasco identity of co-founders Claudio Acquaviva and Debora Bordogni has informed their distinctive concrete method. They focus on the tekne, the tangible mastery of architecture, materials, and spaces of living. The technique is their absolute truth, the objectivity that they apply to any project they work on, and the defining element that renders their designs timeless and enduring.
Officina Magisafi collaborates with a network of selected local artisans whose values inspire and pass on the shared appreciation of the basis of any living space: they are process-driven, believing that the determining key is in the building through a human-centric approach. The result, whether it be for private residences, commercial interiors or hospitality projects, is always functional spaces that speak of the intended user, stripped of any unnecessary noises.
From their headquarters, an historical building in Val Vertova, Officina Magisafi don’t focus on projects, but rather on the creation of a methodology that inserts them in all of the creation stages: from conception, design, management, process to the final realisation, they’re signing every step with their silent essence.
How we Work with and for the Client
Every Project follows 6 Schematic Phases, divided in 3 Sections:
1 → 2 →
3 → 4 →
5 → 6
1. Concept / 2. 3D Rendering /
3. Planning / 4. Economic management /
5. Works management / 6. Works end
Every phase of the project is shared with the Client through a dedicated account and weekly reports. The Client can check at any time the project phases, the 3D renderings, the cost analysis documents, the progress of the work, the status of the practices, the contracts with the workforce and the craftsmen and professionals involved. A complete and detailed plan for the progress of the individual phases is also shared with the Client, which can be easily consulted through a graphic representation. Each process is custom made. For this reason, we maintain a direct relationship with each of our Clients, who actively participate in decisions, with the awareness of being able to rely on a single interlocutor for all phases of the work.
