Claudio Silvestrin

Architecture of contemplation and for our inner self – it is most of all for our soul.

Claudio Silvestrin is a world-famous architect and designer and is known as the “father of minimalist architectural design”. He was born in 1954, studied under A.G. Fronzoni in Milan and at the Architectural Association in London.

Despite his distinguished position in the architectural world, Claudio Silvestrin prefers to keep a low profile, avoiding the showiness preferred by many at the top of his profession. The same might be said about his projects which, rather than indulging in the spectacular and hyper-ornate, are understated affairs, serene and meditative.

Claudio Silvestrin’s interest in philosophy, his vision, his integrity, clarity of mind, inventiveness and concern for details are reflected in his distinctive architecture: austere but not extreme, contemporary yet timeless, calming but not ascetic, strong but not intimidating, elegant but not ostentatious, simple but not soulless.

Claudio Silvestrin Architects was established in 1989 with offices in London and, since 2006, in Milan as well. The work of the practice encompasses real estate developments, newly built houses and resorts for private residence, art galleries and museums, restaurants, luxury retail stores and furniture design.

Claudio Silvestrin believes that architecture is a kind of poetry that expresses emotion through space and materials; uses art to present the philosophy of architecture and the soul of the brand. The classic and timeless design is the architectural aesthetic of Claudio Silvestrin, which combines the philosophy and elegance of the brand with architecture and art.
