Quarchatelier is a project, is an idea, definitely it’s a Practice. In the heart of the old MIano.

Started in 2008.

For Quarchatelier each project is a Story to be told.

The scope is to combine two awarenesses, two visions, different competences, to create projects to become exclusive experiences.

Quarchatelier is an international architecture laboratory. Before setting up the Company we have all worked for highly regarded international architecture studios.

We specialize in:

• interior design
• shop design
• industrial design
• lighting design
• exhibit design
• styling
• brand concept & communication
• strategic design

Quarchatelier a memorable experience

We support companies in planning and developing all architectural elements responding to the client’s specific needs and translating faithfully its brand.
We focus on the meaning, the value and the efficiency of the project so as to boost our clients’ visibility and competitiveness.
The ultimate goal is to offer a memorable experience to end-users and consumers.


Quarchatelier a tailor-made approach



At the end of the process, the project has to belong immediately to the client; like a friendly compound ready to be driven through, ready to be lived in.
