I nostri Progetti

Our History

Obicua was established in 2008 as an Architecture Partnership between Lucia Catenacci, Massimiliano Brugia and Valerio Campi, licensed architects OAR (Architect association of Rome IT) and M.Arch in Architecture at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Faculty of Architecture  “Vallegiulia”.

The name OBICUA is inspired to our aim for going beyond borders and design “for every place”. The capacity of projecting the practice in diverse geographic scenarios which was acquired throughout the years together with the aim to produce quality design makes OBICUA the right firm for outstanding clients and international organizations in need for innovative design solutions.

Our firm has gained international recognitions and awards. Some of our projects got publications on a serie of architectural magazines that have been translated in multiple languages.

Le Nostre Factory

The Factory is not only an Architecture office. Beside being the firm’s architectural Manifesto it is designed to become a place both for architects, designers and artists where these diciplines are supposed to contaminates each other.

The place was an old Alfa Romeo cars factory into a dismissed manufacturing area right out of Rome, built in the sixties on top of the ancient roman “Via Flaminia”, consular way of access to the city from North, used from thousand of years during the empire.
