studio wok, established in 2012, headed by Marcello Bondavalli, Nicola Brenna, and Carlo Alberto Tagliabue, focuses on architecture, design, and landscape research, paying great attention to the quality of living.

The team has taken part in several national and international competitions, where they have won a number of awards. Their work has been featured in major exhibitions, including “Stanze, altre filosofie dell’abitare” at the XXI Triennale di Milano and “Invisible Architecture” at the Museo Carlo Bilotti Aranciera in Villa Borghese, Rome.

The projects have been featured in numerous publications such as “Wallpaper,” “La Repubblica,” “Abitare” “AD Germany,” “Elle Decor” and “Living” by Corriere della Sera.

In addition to the professional design work, the team engages in academic endeavors, and has been invited to give lessons and workshops at various universities in Italy and abroad: Politecnico di Milano, SUN Seconda Università di Napoli, ISCTE-IUL Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, and Domus Academy.

They have been featured in the Wallpaper* Architects Directory 2019, the selection of the 20 world’s most promising emerging practices.
