This year our Christmas Card pays tribute to the iconic album cover of Joy Division. As their artwork visualises the sound waves coming from a distant celestial body, we get into the holiday spirit with some Christmas vibes.
Homebuilding & Renovating have featured our project, Victorian Remix in an interview. Marco talks about how we transformed an old Victorian house to meet contemporary living standards. Continuous floor levels, a new dedicated wellness floor and opening up the house towards the garden all work together to create a living space that is focused on well-being. Watch the full video here.
We are thrilled to announce that Victorian Remix has been shortlisted for The Daily Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2018. Britain’s premier awards scheme for self builds and renovations is searching for those one-off homes that showcase great design, ingenuity and spirit.
The judges appreciated our project for showing "imaginative results of mixing old and new, and combining sensitive restoration work with innovative design ideas".
We are proud that our educational project for Eurocentres is featured in the Knowledge Capital research by NLA. The research paper looks at new visions for London’s education and health sector, showcasing the best projects & initiatives that support the transformation of London.

Guarnieri Architects Christmas Card series – Snowflake Types Blueprint
Our residential project in South London has completed this week.
We are very proud of what we achieved and happy that our client can finally enjoy the space we designed for him.
With the announcement of the competition for the Museum of the 20th Century being awarded, we are happy to present our proposal submitted for the first stage of the competition.
Guarnieri Architects' answer to the challenges of the site was to create open and accessible public spaces at ground level for the enjoyment of all visitors. The new volume above is simple in shape and although it has iconic quality it does not attempt to compete with the surrounding significant iconic building of the Philarmonie and the Nationalgalerie.
Within dense and historic urban context such us this one we think that the opportunity is to retain the open space as this becomes less and less as the city grows.
We like to call our project a “public landscape with a silent icon”.
Guarnieri Architects emerged as winners in the London Design Foosball - the European Design and Architecture table football tournament.
Our team fended off opposition from Paul McAneary Architects in the semifinal and from AHR in the final to secure the trophy.
We would like to thanks Gianluca and Silvia of TOWANT for the impeccable organisation and Artemide, our sponsor, for their support.
This year our Christmas Card is “Season’s Landscape”. It represents an imaginary landscape made out of mountains with a star profile. The star is part of the imagery of Christmas and the white and blue resembles the colours of the snow on the mountains. At this time of the year our thoughts are with those colleagues who are less lucky than us. This year we support the Architects Benevolent Society.
The Architects Benevolent Society is dedicated to helping architects, assistants, technologists, technicians, landscape architects - and their families – in times of need. It helps people of all ages who have experienced illness, accident, redundancy, unemployment, bereavement or other personal misfortune. www.absnet.org.uk
Our residential project progressed further on site. All main structural work is now completed and the contractor is now working on the finishes.
If you would like to see how far you can go with a Victorian structure stay tuned on this website for further upgrades.
We have done some work to our office. Here is a preview.
The works included the replacement of the heating system and all light fittings with more efficient ones. We believe we cut our carbon footprint in half.
The project also aimed at making the space a more appealing and productive place for our staff.
Substantial progress on our residential project on site. Famella is doing a fantastic job on this very demanding project.
Stay tuned to find out about the most amazing transformation of a Victorian structure.
This year we used the Koch pattern to design our Christmas Card. It is one single line of this pattern and it is laid out so the profile looks like a landscape or an imaginary cityscape. It has a star profile in it and it is white like the snow. How much there is in a single continuous line!
Guarnieri Architects is delighted to support Shelter this Christmas.
