De Leo & Drasnar, the International Architecture Studio in Turin

Interior Design and Sustainable Architecture in Italy and abroad

De Leo & Drasnar is an international architecture studio based in Turin and Singapore, founded by architects Massimiliano De Leo and Lukas Drasnar following previous experiences with world renowned firms such as Massimiliano Fuksas, OMA, Shigeru Ban, Mecanoo, Armani, Dominique Perrault and Behnisch Architekten.
Our team has developed important projects and collaborations both in Italy and abroad in the fields of architecture, interior design and furniture design.

We provide innovative and customized solutions for architecture and interior design  as well as custom-made furniture, paying particular attention to details.
Our services are based on a 360 degree approach that goes from design to implementation, passing through project management and construction site supervision. We take care of every project with extreme attention and passion in order to satisfy the needs of all our customers.
Our numerous projects at national and international level demonstrate our skills in creative, innovative, and sustainable design. We are particularly proud of the Sushi Be Restaurant refurbishing in Biella (Italy), designed under Generative Design principles, consisting of the use of parametric design software and eco-compatible materials. Other relevant collaborations include the Red Bull BoARt Bar in Alassio (Italy), the Slany House in Prague (Czech Republic), the Xile Clothing Store in Glasgow (UK), and Villa Glicini in Turin (Italy).


Our Philosophy

Nuovi modi di comprendere l'architettura | De Leo & Drasnar Architects Torino
Our studio is based on spatial and formal research. Through this design method, we give way to the creation at different architectural scales: from furniture design to urban design, our focus is to influence people with new ways of living and understanding architecture.
We cover different emphases such as concept creation, art direction, design, sustainability, and project management. In this way we can guarantee a better quality in our work and provide a complete vision of what concerns an integrated architectural project.


Design Method

The design process always starts with sketches, schemes and physical models. Once the idea is formulated, we begin to draw it in 2D, 3D and parametric software, trying to get a product in perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality. Subsequently we present the project with photorealistic perspectives of the chosen solution and executive drawings in order to take care of the realization in the smallest details and with the maximum precision.


Eco-compatible Architecture

Architettura Ecosostenibile Torino | De Leo & Drasnar
We are aware that using sustainable design methods is nowadays a responsibility us architects and designers have. This is an essential factor that cannot be excluded in our projects. Through the use of eco-compatible materials and new technologies, we can reduce the consumption of non-renewable sources as well as the environmental impact in buildings.


Teamwork

We believe that teamwork is essential to grow as a company. In our case, having a studio based in Italy and Singapore allows us to have a synergistic approach and international visibility, thanks also to the exchange between experts of different nationalities and cultures. Multidisciplinary teamwork is our greatest strength because it allows us to have a global understanding of the project and customer needs.
