Valeria Granillo Studio is an interdisciplinary studio operating globally across architecture, design, and communications.
Through comprehensive analysis, insightful research, tailored concept, actionable strategy, thoughtful design, and nuanced communication, we craft and implement holistic interventions to help our clients move forward.
Next to commissions and collaborations, the studio investigates topics in art, architecture, design, media and technology in self-initiated projects.
The world can be seen as a vast and complex system of interdependence and interconnectedness.
Our ambition is to facilitate a deeper understanding of the contexts and to contribute to a sustainable future through proposals for long-term value creation based on the combination of knowledge from multiple disciplines and the active collaboration with professionals from different fields in an open process that brings a broad range of voices together and focuses on the single elements as well as the matrix of relationships that connects them.
By challenging and diluting disciplinary boundaries and setting up interdependencies between elements that unfold over time while critically evaluating the existing and combining what it is relevant with the new, we feed the exchange of knowledge and dialogue, and address complexity with respect for past, present and future.
Our services include analysis and research, concept development, creative strategy, space planning, interior design, exhibition design, product development, design consultancy, art direction, branding, integrated marketing communications.
