About FAREstudio

“FARE” is an Italian verb derived from the Latin word facere. It can be translated as to do, to make or to produce. The English meaning of FARE – the price to be paid for a service or, extensively, a  trip – while unintentional, is inherently significant; “studio” derives from Latin studium [“study, eagerness”] and refers to a workroom but also to all those working together with a zeal for the production which occurs in a studio space, sharing a method and finalities.

FAREstudio would like to be regarded as accurate, radical, reliable, independent, proactive, realistic, challenging, competent, curious.
FAREstudio is focused on appropriateness as integration of customary solutions and innovations, merged according to different contexts and circumstances.
FAREstudio has been interestend more on working on context of scarcity because this is seen as a major challenge.

Infact, according to FAREstudio,

the poorer the context, the more demanding the project: SCARCITY dictates QUALITY.

What we do. Paper, drawings, quality.

FAREstudio is eclectic by choice and by circumstances and operates between social and speculative jobs.

The market’s saturation, the surge of new subjects, the fierce competition make ‘conventional’ practice not accessible and possibly obsolete. Our strategy is to play a different game: FAREstudio adapts to various contexts, refusing the logic of specialization, jumping here and there according to circumstances and needs.

However, we exclude all kind of works in which we don’t believe, such as those related directly to war or which contribute to the extensive pollution of our environment.

In the end we produce and sell pieces of paper where buildings and they should be built are described.

Projects

Our objective is to promote our work.
The strategy is to use what has been done in the past to show reliability, and attract attention. One thing, however, must be outlined: what we have produced so far has to do with the opportunities we have been able to find but does not refer exclusively to what we would like to do.

Future is still to be designed.

Team

We think that the practice of architecture is strongly related to social and economic values who practise it and the society which sustains it.

We are a very small team beacause we want to carefully control our projects and beacause we believe that the future is in the network of specialist you are able to involve and not more in the construction of big and static productive realities.

We are an “handicraft” office with variegated and integrated competences.
