ZENO is an architecture firm based on the partnership of two young architects, Andrea Zecchetti and Francesco Nobili. The multi-disciplinary approach and the work on different project sizes are the main focus of the studio, with a particular interest on building reuse as a re-interpretation of the architectural layering.

We develop projects from concept to details, with focus on production and construction stages.
Each project is therefore an opportunity to explore the relationship between new and existent, rules and new entity, materiality and domestic spaces.
