Architect Bernardo Tori — the leader of a modern architecture practice — began working in Florence in 1980, concentrating primarily on rehabilitation and refurbishment of historical buildings, reconciling the need to protect the historical, artistic and landscape heritage with the requirements of modern living and functional standards in buildings put to a different use.
The experience Architect Tori gained in the rehabilitation, renovation and refurbishment of important historic buildings has been especially important, as has been his work in very delicate landscape and urban contexts.
The Practice — which formerly included other architects as associates — has recently begun to work on designing new buildings with a variety of different purposes: major wineries and tourist centres, as well as other rehabilitation projects, of residential, commercial and office buildings.
The Practice is firmly rooted in the culture of Tuscany and is widely appreciated for its consistency of style and great skill in integrating every project fully into its context.
Today the Bernardo Tori Practice is the expert professional partner supervising all the most important rehabilitation and development plans implemented by the Region of Tuscany: it can count on the professional skills of its team members, who provide qualified support in developing the designs of all the projects it is commissioned.
Bernardo Tori Architecture Firm supports the use of this latest technology to produce better buildings and better restoration and refurbishment projects, in ter¬ms of design and construction, operation, energy per¬formance and sustainability, risk reduction and costs management.
