"d2w studio" was founded in 2009 from Nicola Di Dato and Maria Wancolle
after our meeting.

Two young architects with a different background but united by a passion for    

Ideology: Our “laboratory of ideas” born with the intention to
create a “network” that works in Italy and abroad. 

The activities of the firm  includes project of interior, urban project,
theatre sets, installations, design and design contests. 

Philosophy: Our job is to disconnect from any formal logic and
any aesthetic research; in each project, the architecture
refers to the primary role of context and the “pleasure of the place”
with sensitivity and specificity by creating uniqueness of the HIC ET NUNC. 

In the last year include wins international competitions and some publications.

“Planting a tree in the garden is like decorating a room”

I graduated from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”
realizing the dream I had as a child: “to be an architect!”

Thesis project: the redevelopment of an area degraded
on banks of the Danube in Belgrade.
My research has always been to combine Architecture
with Nature, to make sure that the architecture
creates emotions…as to see an amazing landscape
or enjoy a sunset.
In 2009 I founded with Nicola Di Dato d2w studio.
