Three independent architects, with similar and distinct lines of work, share a studio in Milan and found a design team.
Unity of space and purpose, in order to challenge themselves with new design realities.
Investing 20 years of parallel experiences, language skills and international past.

MAC, founded by Claudio Calabrese, Stefania Martinelli and Davide Medaglia, and based in Milan, works on different kinds of issues: from urban planning, to architectural, interior and exhibit design, to concept retail, as well as artistic and technical direction of building sites.
Our design team can deal with the complexity of the design process, while project management coordinates an extensive network of established partnerships: industrial designers, landscape designers, contractors, construction managers, structural engineers, plant engineers and other consultants and suppliers. Each project is approached as a tailor-made solution and integrates attention to details and finishes, relationship with the site, sustainability in all phases of the design process.
The result is a combination of elegance and utility.
