AVA is a young award winning studio specialized in architecture, urbanism, research and design. Founded in 2008, the team has already developed over 80 projects in several countries. The Graz based studio has worked on a variety of projects, each developed with attention to the individual case while holding on to AVA’s mission. Some of the key strategies of AVA team are creative reduction of form, attention to detail, and always achieving a noble architectural design with a focus on functionality and accurate response to site surrounding. Architectural responsibility is the main focus of at AVA, a feature that is evident throughout all stages of our projects, from initial conceptualization to project completion. Being an architect is a delicate and multifaceted task. One must not only be an excellent technician, but also have artistic, creative qualities, tied in with patience and amazing listening skills, not short of a psychologist. Further, amazing organizational skills, and an acute awareness of the influence one exudes on peoples’ lives are also of utter importance as remaining conscientious of costs. The AVA studio developed with the ideas and goals set out by Andrea Vattovani, a young and successful studio that has since participated in competitions and projects internationally - in countries such as Italy, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, the United States, China, Thailand, and Finland just to name a few.
