Metropolis is a creative studio that merges architecture, production-design, digital and high-tech tools to develop complex and innovative projects. Our goal is to impact the profitability of any business involved through effective design and a true understanding of the client’s needs and context. Metropolis has evolved from a exclusively architectural studio, into a full-fledged brand development office. Through our work we want to arouse emotions by creating digital, praticipatory and innovative spaces. Light, transparency, vibrating textures and colours are important immaterial elements that interact with the form of space and aren’t just a function of it. We include and play with all of them in our work. The results are best judged by the complete satisfaction and success of our clients.
