Giorgia Colombo Architetto was established in Rome in 2016. The practice’s work, developed in Italy and abroad, includes both private and public commissions with a focus on cultural, residential, and civic buildings.

The studio is interested in exploring the relation between architecture and its environment and all the projects are deeply sensitive to the specific conditions of the site in which they are built. The design process finds its complexity in the essentiality of the forms, with a strong focus on materials and construction details.

The practice is always seeking for new sources of inspiration and is committed to the educational and social value of architecture.


Born in Rome in 1989, Giorgia Colombo studied Architecture at Roma Tre University, at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris la Villette and at the Polytechnic University of Milan, where she obtained her Master’s degree. After graduating, she collaborated with the Politecnico di Milano as a teaching assistant in several workshops and design classes.

In 20212 - 2014 she worked as an architectural assistant with the firms Scandurra Studio (Milan) and Stella Richter+Ochoa (Rome). In 2016 she joined as a freelance architect the studio Lamberto Rossi Associati (Milan) and in 2017 she moved to London where she collaborated with the firms Brooksbank & Collins, Allies and Morrison and Haworth Tompkins.

Back to Italy in 2021 she continued working as a self-employed architect, teaming up with the firm Grazzini Tonazzini. She designed several apartments and houses and took part in many national and international competitions were she got various prizes and honourable mentions.

She is particularly interested in architectural research and in the field of exhibition design. In 2017 she participated to the advanced training course “Esporre” organised by the museum MAXXI (Rome) and in 2022 she got the II Level Master Degree “Museo Italia-Allestimento e museografia” from the University of Florence.
