We approach both big and small projects with the same passion, and every project is alive with possibility. We’re not confined by expectation or by precedent. Instead, every project is unlike any other, and our track record shows where an open mind and intelligent research can take us. We’ve led large international teams to deliver complex buildings, we’ve worked on urban master plans, and we’ve created museums and galleries, pavilions and temporary exhibition spaces, universities, schools, private houses and artists’ studios.

Whatever the project, and whatever the scale, we work closely with our clients at every stage – from that initial conversation, through construction and beyond. In every case, we find the best answer to the very specific question that the client and the site present us with, bringing together finely crafted details, natural materials and the latest technology. And then we go one step further to include something fresh and unexpected. We have the experience, energy and sensitivity to create warm, welcoming spaces which invite you to use them in ways you might never have imagined.

Maurizio Mucciola
MArch, MSc AAD, ARB, RIBA, RIAS
Director
maurizio@pim.studio

Maurizio is fascinated by the relationship between city, architecture and public places, and is passionate about rethinking the way these interact. How can we create better connections between private and public spaces? How can internal and external spaces better flow into one another? How can people positively influence the way public spaces are used? He has explored all of these questions in his work as lead architect for V&A Dundee, a dramatic building which draws people to the waterfront, revitalises the idea of public space, and blurs the boundaries between a building and its surroundings.

Before setting up PiM.studio with Maria-Chiara Piccinelli in 2016, Maurizio worked with Kengo Kuma & Associates in Tokyo, Edinburgh and Paris, with OMA/Rem Koolhaas in Rotterdam, and with Jeffrey Inaba at C-Lab in New York.
He is a chartered member of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) and RIAS (Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland), and is registered with the ARB (Architects Registration Board).

Maria-Chiara Piccinelli
MArch, ARB, OAPPC
Director
maria-chiara@pim.studio

Maria-Chiara is as interested in the technical aspects of architecture – the finer details, the way things fit together, the materials – as she is in the way we use the spaces in which we live and work. She is a strong believer in the importance of public spaces for a city to thrive, and in the crucial role nature plays within architecture.

As a director of PiM.studio alongside Maurizio Mucciola, she brings to the practice many years of experience leading complex and high-profile projects. She began her career in Italy, and has since worked in Tokyo, Edinburgh and Paris for Kengo Kuma & Associates, and in Rotterdam for OMA/Rem Koolhaas. Most recently, she applied her rigour and eye for detail as project architect on the much-heralded revamp of the Galleries Lafayette revamp in Paris for Amanda Levete Architects.
She is registered with the ARB (Architects Registration Board) and with the OAPPC (the architects register in Italy).

Chiara Dognini
Architectural Assistant RIBA Part I
chiara@pim.studio

Chiara Dognini joined PiM.studio as Part I Architectural Assistant as part of the LSA practice placement program. Chiara completed her Part I studies at the Politecnico di Milano.

Chiara previously worked as Architectural Assistant for an infrastructural Engineering office working on urban scale projects and where she had the opportunity to deepen her knowledge of the construction process. Chiara also participated in an international competition called Villard:19 during which she understood the importance in the observation of the context for architecture to become an integral part of the territory.

Chiara is interested in developing strategies to approach the contemporary society problems starting from a critical analysis  of the place and on the application of emerging technological systems to the  built environment.
