Max was exposed to the foundations of design from an early age and worked at his father's practice in his native Rome. He completed a Masters in architecture at (university) and later established his own practice also in Rome. In 2007 he moved to New Zealand and worked with Athfield Architects before establishing mc architecture studio ltd.

Collaboration is a consistent feature of the studio and Max is committed to developing local and international networks to cross-pollinate ideas and maintain his connection and currency with best practice and new conceptual thinking.

He strongly believes that interaction develops professionalism and human potential. Although strongly influenced by European standards, processes and aesthetics, Max takes inspiration from many sources.

He has travelled extensively and completed his master's thesis in India where he explored low cost housing. Inspiration comes also from sports and the natural environment - the ocean and the mountains particularly - as well as music and arts.

Max is passionate about built environments that attract and inspire- whether as a public civic building, a retail space or that most personal of buildings - one's own home.

The Studio's work, questioning the boundary between Art and Architecture, provides engaging and innovative living space with the highest sustainability standard.

Design solutions are tailored on client needs and site's characteristics. Hence the final product will be unique and strongly related to the context and wider environment.

On a specific-project basis, the studio, maintaining the leadership of the whole process, works in a network with local and international practices to achieve the best operational efficiency and local knowledge worldwide to accommodate the needs of a big scale project or specific requirements.
