Born in 1954, Claudio Silvestrin studied under A. G. Fronzoni in Milan and at the Architectural Association in London. His integrity, clarity of mind, inventiveness and concern for details is reflected in his 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 also. The work of the practice encompasses real estate developments, newly built houses, spas, private residences, art galleries and museums, domestic and retail interiors and furniture design. Clients include Giorgio Armani, illycaffé, Anish Kapoor, Calvin Klein, Poltrona Frau, Victoria Miro, the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo for whom he has designed the museum in Turin and the internationally
acclaimed hip hop artist and producer Kanye West. Claudio Silvestrin Architects has recently become involved in large projects including high-rise buildings, villa developments and resorts worldwide.
