When he was a young boy, back in the 90’s, Antonio Girardi used to spend summers and weekends on vast building sites with his father’s construction company, erecting structures from private villas to large developments around Naples.
There Antonio’s love of engineering and architecture was born, along with his expert eye for structure and design. Years later, he founded Studio LabARK, a novel “laboratory” with a dedication to design research and a strong focus on new technologies, innovative materials, social responsibility, and environmental sustainability.
Girardi has developed and executed a number of projects that have been featured in several media such as Roma Where, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest and Condé Nast Traveller, up to the sought after lists of Departures and The Financial Times’ How to Spend It.
Antonio’s professional work comprises governmental facilities, corporate and public buildings, private homes and products of industrial design ranging from furniture to original lighting. The young Studio has built a name for themselves in Italy’s hospitality thanks to a wide range of luxury suites, hotels and B&Bs.
