About us

Stefania Martinelli and Claudio Calabrese founded MAC milano architettura contemporanea in 2015, after studying architecture and art in Milan and abroad and later working for an extensive period with Gregotti Associati. The MAC studio works across different areas, from architectural design, interiors and retail to project management, art direction and site management. A design philosophy focused on the person and the quality of life fosters places that are welcoming, sensory and enduring, where the relationship between space, materials and furniture is one of reciprocity and every solution a direct response to needs and aspirations. The firm manages a consolidated team of consultants and suppliers able to cover every aspect of design and implementation.



Our services are aimed at private clients, investors, construction companies and general contractors:

– all phases of the project (concept design, schematic design, detailed design)
– economic evaluation and cost estimates
– integrated project management
– integrated site management
– interior and furnishing design.
