A2BC is a professional firm based in Milan, Italy, founded at the end of 2008 from the will of architects Anna Angelelli, Antonio Bergamasco and Michela Cicuto of consolidating their relevant professional trajectories in a common experience. The acquired experience in the design and management of projects which differ in terms of program, typology and dimension contributes to the shaping of a flexible and versatile practice, refusing specialization in favour of an open approach to the potentials of design.

The firm engages in the production of a solid and precise architecture, relevant to the specific conditions of the program and the context, with particular attention towards the spatial quality of design, the cultural implications of building and the expressive significance of material and form.

Part of the new generation of european architects, A2BC has developed to date the ability to operate at an international scale, thanks to a consolidated network of professionals from different countries. The work of the firm has been published in design and lifestyle press and awarded in international competitions and prizes for emerging architectural practices. Given the valuable experience and capacity to bring high quality works to fruition, A2BC is ever continuing to expand its profile.
