Mauro Rivolta graduated in architecture in 1996 and started his professional activity working for some architectural firms between Milano and Varese.
In 1998 he attended the European Master on Bioclimatic Architecture, developing a sustainable approach to architecture.
Between 2000 and 2001 he travelled accross central and northern Europe, Sri Lanka, following the trasse of Geffrey Bawa, Australia, meeting the architecture of Glenn Murcutt.
In 2003 he attended the course of Italian National Association for Bioecological Architecture (ANAB) becoming a specialist in bioarchitecture.
In 2004 Studio Ecoarch was founded by Mauro Rivolta; few years later architects Davide Ferrari, Alessandro Cremona and Gabriele Sartorelli joined the firm.
Since then, we designed our buildings linking a strong formal and compositive research to a deep sensitivity for natural materials, always looking at the latest innovations in building technology.
Around each work Studio Ecoarch gathers experience, know-how, creativity and research. Our work is based on an expert management of all design processes and a severe budget control in order to satisfy the different needs architecture must express.
We think that the way to quality in architecture depends on the continuity of design development and on an intensive dialogue with customers, developers and users.
We work together to get the highest synthesis between function and beauty. We can push the performances of our buildings to passive house standards featuring state-of-the-art technologies: geothermic plants, heath pumps, photovoltaic systems, solar panels, greenhouses, green roofs and sun shading systems.
These choices, besides a correct bioclimatic layout and a strong wall insulation, lead to a minimum energy compsuntion: a self-sufficient, zero emission home is the best investment for our families and for the environment.
