Studio

OKS Architetti is an architecture, urbanism and design studio led by Eugenio Salvetti and Luca Scollo. The studio, based in Firenze, was founded in 2014 and deals with design and research, measuring itself with the themes and needs of the contemporary times.

The studio is designed as a place of contamination and confrontation, born with the desire to create new design scenarios and innovative solutions. The projects of OKS Architetti are always born from a careful analysis of the different contexts addressed and seek to establish a direct relationship with people and the surrounding landscape.

OKS Architetti addresses and investigates the different architectural scales, from the design of public spaces to the renovation of buildings, from the study of the landscape to the design of specialized buildings. The firm deals with public and private works, as well as participating in numerous design competitions and tenders, both in Italy and abroad.

Over the years he has received important awards, including Young Italian Architects, Nib Architettura, and numerous awards and mentions in international competitions including “Scuoleinnovative, Follonica”, “Nuova scuola secondaria, Pordenone”, “Human Technopole, expo area, Milan”, “Riqualificazione ospedale “Le Scotte”, Siena”. In addition to being present on important magazines, the studio over the years has participated in important workshops, in architectural competitions juries and held conferences at universities, cultural festivals and research centers.
