Arch. Tomas Ghisellini

An architect, he studied at the Faculty of Architecture of Ferrara, from which he graduated with honors in 2002 discussing an experimental thesis on the strategic reuse of offshore methane platforms in the northern Adriatic Sea. Since 2004 he has been a contract professor at the Faculty of Architecture of Ferrara, where he first taught “Analysis of the city and the territory”, then “Landscape Architecture” and finally “Theories and techniques of architectural design”. In 2009 he founded his own firm after numerous experiences both in Italy and abroad, the Atelier di Architettura, specialized in the field of architectural and urban design, landscape architecture, interior design, exhibition design and communication, using a staff of architects, engineers, graphic designers and artists called to form an innovative integrated multidisciplinary group.



The Firm consists of a group of professionals organized in a multidisciplinary team that manages the skills necessary for the completion of the project, from concept to execution. The collaboration with the Department of Architecture of Cesena allows a strong connection between design activities and university research, with particular reference to sustainable architecture and energy efficiency. Academic culture is applied in a design methodology capable of managing technological innovations and ensuring high performance requirements, with attention to the interpretation of the context and compositional research. The design method used follows the German Passivhaus standard: the most prestigious and stringent international protocol for NZEB (near zero energy building).

Stefano Piraccini (Cesena, 1976) graduated in Architecture from the University of Ferrara in 2001. In 2005 he obtained a PhD in Architectural Technology and since then he has been a contract professor at the Department of Architecture, School of Engineering and Architecture, Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, where he is the author of scientific publications. The main lines of research in his design activity concern technological innovation, energy efficiency and contemporary architecture. His works are reflected in design competitions, exhibitions, architecture awards and publications, especially for design research in sustainable architecture using the Passivhaus standard. He has created pilot buildings for European Projects: Passreg (Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union) and SEEDpass (South East Europe strategic partnership vocational education and training in Passive House Design for nearly zero energy buildings development). He has curated conferences, exhibitions and cultural events in collaboration with the University and through the Council of Architects of the Province of Forlì Cesena.
