Alfonso Femia is an Italian Architect and Designer currently living in Genova who is mostly known for creating the 5+1 agency in 1995 alongside Gianluca Peluffo. This company which evolved into 5+1AA in 2005 is more known as Atelier(s) Alfonso Femia. Having a business that has successfully managed to expand to Genoa, Milan and Paris, it’s no wonder that Alfonso has been tackling his architectural projects. Most notably the multidisciplinary team is inspired by the main features of these three locations.

The best way to define Alfonso Femia and his team’s architecture style is by describing it as a style that amplifies human relationships, taking advantage of them to create a dialogue tool between people and contexts. With each of the projects that come their way they always require a communication tool, searching and asserting the best idea to fit every unique situation.
