FTA is a multidisciplinary design studio, creating architecture, industrial and interior design with special attention toward energy saving strategies and sustainability. Our projects unite technical experimentation with environmental research, translating the limitations proposed by energy conscious design into creative solutions which guide the formal character of the project’s realization. This approach is the core of the studio’s collaboration with a team of external specialists: energy consultants, graphic designers, quantity surveyors and light technicians, chosen ad hoc according to the nature of each project.
