PROJECTUAL PHILOSOPHY

The practice’s design philosophy is born from the "Contamination Theory"; a theory with Apostoli has applied positively to create an end product which emerges from the convergence of different styles and views.
For Apostoli "contamination" means combining the creative energy of architecture, the originality and functionality of design andthen filtering them with a marketing oriented approach, in order to create a three dimensional creative space; architecture defined by space, light and volume, design defined by shape, materials and trends and marketing by market trends, the client’s target and positioning.
This approach enables the practice to tackle the most diverse design themes.
The method consists of creating a different combination for each individual project in order to obtain the right design for each specific objective.
