How we work

Whether we are planning a re-styling, doing a restoration or building a new house, both of us at VP Architetti follow the job in person. This creates the kind of close and continuous client relationship that we have found is the most satisfying.
We have been asked to carry out a wide range of projects of all sizes and time limits. No matter the size or the time frame, we follow our projects meticulously, with personal dedication—and respect for the project’s budget. Our ability to mediate with clients, tradesmen and suppliers as well as the government agencies that are part of the permit process has turned out to be a great resource.

Here are some highlights of our work process:

  • Detailed interview: This allows us to understand our clients’ dreams, needs, limits and expectations. Understanding our client’s personalities and lifestyles are the first steps of any project
  • Survey: We begin every project by taking photographs and accurate measurements, which gets us into the spirit of the new place and helps visualize its details
  • Inventory of existing furniture and decorations: If we are working on an existing home, this helps us understand how to fit the client’s possessions into a new setting. These connect the “before” with the “after”— a valuable emotional link
  • Practicality: We have a strong female sense of what works and are rigorous about making the most of a home’s storage space
  • Turnkey: Clients enter a home complete down to the last accessory and decorative vignette. Throughout the process, we work directly with upholsterers, painters and carpenters as well as art galleries and antique dealers
  • Research: We are constantly reviewing catalogues and websites. We visit trade and antique fairs such as Milan’s Salone del Mobile, Paris’ Maison & Objet and Parma’s Mercante in Fiera. We work directly with a wide range of artisans who guarantee that work is done at the highest level
