Biography

Based in Paris and Milan, Antonio Virga Architect has been working for more than 15 years on various programs, including public facilities (retail parks, cultural centres...), shared living (student residences, youth hostels, collective housing...), as well as revaluation of urban heritage in constrained site and interior refit with a strong knowledge of the demands linked to luxury brands' core expression (offices, showrooms, retail, apartments).

In 2012, he delivers « The Atoll » with Vincent Parreira, first eco retail park of France. This multi-awarded project would seal their collaboration, rich of numerous other innovative programmes. Together in 2016, they win the Réinventer Paris international competition with a funeral home and a plateforme for urban logistics on the Poterne des Peupliers' site (Paris 13th district).
Enjoying working on projects ranging "from the spoon to the city" (Gio Ponti), Antonio Virga strengthens its refusal to specialize through this diversity of achievements.
