Firm - Ilenia Girolami

A registered Architect since 2005, Ilenia Girolami graduated from the University of Florence in 2004 with 110/110 cum laude and a worthy of publication for her thesis on restoration and reconvertion of Florentine Medici Villas. She immediately started working as a professional architect while completing a stage with the Superintendence of Monuments of Firenze in collaboration with well-known Florentine professionals. Her experience extends from the Restoration of Monumental Buildings to the Interior Design of prestigious premises; her professional expertise ranges from projects for new builds for private or public clients, where she carefully considers everything down to the smallest detail. After her degree in 2004, the architect Girolami attended numerous specialization courses in interior design, lighting design, and bioarchitecture, including a post-graduate Master in Wellness and Fitness Area Design at the University of Bologna. Her passion for Contemporary Art and Design enriches her rigorous university education and over the years, she has worked professionally on many important projects involving villas, palaces and other historical and/or monumental buildings, mainly in Italy but also in other cultural contexts abroad. Overtime this has all become an integral part of a brilliant career with numerous awards. A singular  distinctness that has become a truly differentiating quality in contemporary catering, wellness, hospitality or specialized residential projects, harmonizing functionality and aesthetics, both in completely new contexts as well as contexts with significant historical origins. From the overall down to details and vice versa, because “our way of working means always having a greater focus than simply the project by considering the context in its entirety and complexity.”
