AT THE BEGINNING IT WAS AN IDEA
The Idea to build something that lasts, to enhance the quality of urban environment and people’s lives. This Idea has become a reality thanks to RRC studio, a Practice made of people sharing the passion for design and for the attention to the detail. In these fifteen years important objectives have been reached, solid foundations have been laid to achieve even more ambitious results.

CULTURE FOR THE FUTURE
RRC STUDIO Architects is active in many fields of architecture in its various scales, working in national and international contexts.
In these years the office has been designing public and private buildings, transformation of urban areas, conversions of existing buildings and public spaces.
The practice is based on an efficient organizational structure through the use of technical and operational excellence resources.
It is divided in three main areas: administrative, commercial and technical.
Architect Romolo Roberto Calabrese is the technical director, he is fully responsible for the administrative, financial, technical and commercial activities of the company. The technical director works closely with project managers who deal with the various contracts.
The administrative area has responsibility for the economic and financial management of the company and coordinates the activities of the following functions: staff, general ledger, secretary/logistics.
The commercial area researches new market opportunities for the company, gains orders, considers requests for bid by customers and prepares its estimates, defines contracts and prepares budget.
The working method, starting from the research, the investigation of the intervention area and sociological and cultural aspects, proposing solutions tailored to programs and places.
Currently RRC Studio is working on some real estate developments in the Middle East and in Southeast Asia.
In particular the office is planning a large-scale multipurpose interventions with services, commercial and residential functions.
In 2011 RRC launches the “STUDIO Architecture and Urbanism magazine”.
RRC Studio projects are defined by an holistic approach allowing for enough flexibility to accommodate changes over the lifespan of a city, in order to meet market demands. The practicalities and concept of a space should be inherently flexible in order to respond to changes. A concept that incorporates a high level of standardised design will facilitate change.
The practice endeavours to employ technologies that sustain rather than pollute, that are durable rather than replaceable, and that add value over time rather than falling prey to short term economies. Our main purpose is to integrate low energy design within the urban environment, to design buildings to optimise passive solar energy, natural ventilation and daylight.
RRC Studio is an international architectural group based in Milan, working on a range of different projects from more than fifteen years. In the practice exchange philosophy is employed at every level, to enable design and management leaders to collaborate and contribute their individual expertise.
