“Every project of ours begins with a dream. Yours.”
“Only the most perfect dream comes close to reality.”
[cit. ind. Toshiro Kawase 1992]
We are Elisa Burnazzi and Davide Feltrin and since we found our architecture studio in 2003 our goal has been to make your wishes come true, turning them into projects first and then into real buildings, which are unique and unrepeatable.
For this reason from the very first meeting we start from you as a person, from what inspires you, what you like, what you desire, what you dream of, what made you choose our studio and before that, what made you land on our website. This is the only way to design consistently, to make sure you create something that belongs to you, reflects you and, in a sort of way, resembles you.
How do we design the spaces of your dreams?
First of all we use a unique tool: Burnazzi Feltrin Architetti’s Dream Book.
In particular we ask you to collect ideas. This for better understand what is your tastes, what moves you, which needs do you have and what is your budget. From a certain point of view, this is the most creative phase of the whole process: it starts a path that leads us to design spaces suitable only for you and your needs, therefore always different, designed and built in a custom made way, like a tailored dress.
All the projects you can see on this website were born in this way: buildings, green spaces, interiors and installations characterized by minimalism and, at the same time, full of warmth because they give a feeling of wellness and belonging. As well as reading these words, you should take time to take a look at the photographs. In this way you can get an idea of the final result and become familiar with our language and aesthetic sense. And then filling your Dream Book will be even easier.
What can we design for you?
We have a wide range of projects: from masterplan for big developing areas to public and private buildings, from renovations and restorations to green spaces and landscapes, from interior design to signage, from art installations to graphic design.
“What really makes the difference is always the design.”
In each of these fields, we carry on the aesthetics of our architecture studio, which is the result from a continuous exchange between two opposites: minimalism and maximalism, in search of new and original balances.
Sometimes we use a limited number of elements such as steel, glass, refined finishings and materials, cutting-edge technology. Instead other times we use elements in a massive way, using many (or more than many) of them, in a repeated way, such as larch wood battens used as cladding on facades. Sometimes we use unexpected elements, such as recycled materials used for installations.
“For us design is both a work and a way of being.
To design is our work and our passion.”
Your dreams, our dialectical method and teamwork.
The firm Burnazzi Feltrin Architetti was founded in Trento in 2003. Who founded it:
- Elisa Burnazzi, born and raised in Rimini, Trentina by adoption
- Davide Feltrin, from Trentino, who lived throughout Italy
Perhaps it is because one is from a seaside city and the other from a mountain place that we have opposite personality. And since everybody keeps on telling us that, we also acknowledge it as one of our strength. Our duality allows us to be empathetic with you and to seize different solutions in our projects.
“In architecture the perfect number is two.”
To enrich our study of different points of view, visions, ideas and skills our team can count on many collaborators from all over Italy.
Your dreams, our philosophy.
“We design for our clients and their communitiy.”
Burnazzi Feltrin Architetti, thanks to active listening and proven procedures, interprets your dreams and needs, declining them into unique and original architectural features. Also we collaborate with skilled artisans and companies from all over the country in order to turn your dream into reality.
For all the project and execution stages, both for planning and building, quality is an essential requirement. We see quality as a public value, able to preserve and enhance beauty if it’s already there, or to add it if it isn’t. In our opinion only a clear understanding of this value allows to respect the past and the landscape and to improve citizens’ living conditions.
We pay the greatest attention to environmental, social and economic sustainability.
For more than twenty years we have been creating upcycling (creative reuse) installations and our buildings have been energy saving even before it was mandatory in Italy. Both of us are CasaClima expert designers since 2004, and we can guarantee that your building will meet the highest standard in terms of energy and environmental performance, which means also saving financial resources. We use, especially for interiors, biocompatible technologies and materials that are good for people’s health and well-being.
Designing with the heart
We suggest the most suitable solutions for you based on the space’s function, aesthetic and emotion. Our aim is to build in a convenient, useful, efficient and, at the same time, extraordinary way. Your architecture will inspire awe, make you feel good, touch your feelings and those of other people.
We are deeply convinced that through architecture, by either moving inside or staying in a space, we connect with our body and with our deepest self. This is the reason why the most beautiful buildings of all eras, those that are truly remembered and never go out of style, are the ones able to resonate with our emotions and to communicate soundly with our being.
“A good architect knows how to use space and light, he makes the materials “sing” and leads the users through a journey in which they can discover a thousand different things”
Being on time and meeting the budget.
“You can be sure of one thing: we know how to make the deal go through.”
Thanks to the experience gained over the years, from the very first meeting we are clear about timing, services and costs. We can start from a preliminary draft, to a detailed design of the building, up to the construction site, the most delicate phase of the whole process because all the interventions of the contractors needs to be coordinated.
We come with you to see and choose materials, we consult different companies and analyses their offers, helping you to choose the best solution. If you wish, we can even help you with interior decoration, even suggesting accessories.
Why you should bet on us? Because you would be in good company.
