We build combining technology and tradition

We share the passion for form and materials and the care to produce high quality products. A good architect and a good interior designer is not enough to make the perfect project: we need a solid team of professionals able to meet the customer's needs in all the phases of the work, from the first project drafts to the final touches. Samuel Drago Architects provides you with the whole team.

We start from people and territory

Any architectural and interior design is influenced by the people who will live the place and by the peculiarities of the territory, in different and not always obvious ways. Empathy and the ability to be able to adapt, understand and assimilate the local anthropology have always been the key steps for the success of Samuel Drago Architects projects. Every individual and every place has its own personality , its own way of behaving, perceiving and experiencing things: a "soul". Globalization is a reality with which we must reckon and from which we can derive some benefits, but the soul of the place can not and should not disappear. This is our mission.
