LPArchitecture & Partners is a cutting-edge studio based in Milan, Italy. LPA is a spin-off from the award-winning ‘Studio A’. Established in 2010 by Giovanni Longo and Alessandro Palmarini, LPA specializes in large-scale residential projects, luxury hotel architecture, and high-end interior design. It has already won a string of prestigious international contracts ranging from Monte Carlo to Kazakhstan and is rapidly expanding its blue-chip Italian client base.

The Studio

For clarity’s sake, due to the above – mentioned spin-off, most of the contents showcased in this new marketing tool have been realized in our former website ( and will act as a platform for LPArchitecture.
A decade of steady growth has seen the Milan-based outfit firmly establish itself in the design field, specializing in turnkey projects that range from residential to hotels, in both private and commercial sectors.

With an international experienced and dynamic staff now covering various design specialisms, LPArchitecture offers what amounts to a ‘one-stop shop’ for its clients, constantly upgrading its services in order to be able to act both as the client’s representative and surveyor, as well as project manager. Great emphasis is placed on using Italy’s world-renowned strengths in high-quality craftsmanship.

LPArchitecture’s success – see the enclosed client list – is based upon its simple but highly effective approach: understand and interpret.

Its designers gain an intimate knowledge and understanding of what each individual client desires,

then realize that idea by interpreting it architecturally in order to provide a sense of place, and comfort, then adding a sense of drama and theatre – producing a stage upon which the clients themselves are both actor and audience.

Utilising its varied experience, plus classic Italian flair and style, LPArchitecure designers combine architectural aesthetics with practicality. The aim is always to satisfy the particular needs of each individual client, be they private or corporate. But crucially, everything is done within the watchwords of ‘budget’ and ‘timeframe’.

LPArchitecure’s knowledge of interior design and architecture at an international level, plus its expertise in new technologies, enables its designers to work within a framework of efficiency in order to provide the best value for money.

LPArchitecure has already successfully partnered some of the major players in both the High Luxury Hotel, and Residential fields, both in Italy and abroad.
