Paolo Volpis Architects applies a coherent set of ideas in different ways. Every project sets apart from the rest for its integrity and conceptualization, and promotes sophisticated ideas broken down by simple and logical thinking; an enjoyable and poetic problem-solving process streamlined into shapes and forms, born from pure and rational thinking.


Over the years the firm designed hotels, luxury apartments and mixed-use buildings, high-rises, amphitheaters, tensile structures for large entertainment venues, schools, libraries, interiors of any kind, and large-scale master plans.

The boutique firm is currently focusing on the design of high-profile residences around the planet, mostly for European Customers.



Paolo Volpis Architects strives for originality and delivers designs that will have unique features and character. We do not believe in a monotone architectural language, characterized by repetitive elements used to define a designer's brand, but instead we define our brand by the uniqueness of each design through the character, spatial solutions and materiality that best fits the context and our client's needs.

Our style and philosophy stand out because we create in the absence of a comfort zone.

The design language expressed is only limited by the desires of our customers, our imagination is limitless yet bound by rational thinking. In California there is a variety of architecture styles,  from the purist mid century modern to the contemporary and transitional; our strength is to provide a style that is a personalized variation to the main trends, making it a true timeless work of art.




We believe that the interior of a house shall be the reflection and an opportunity for continuity from the exterior to the most intimate moments. In our design principles and vision, this is not accomplished just by bringing the outside in through fenestration and open view, but also by expressing architectural elements and forces that connect from the outside in and vice-versa. From context and natural forces to materiality and expression through details and tectonic systems, we create an experience made of flowing special moments, to deliver an experience, a musical and poetic transition through your spaces that is much more than a floor plan.

Complicated is not our language; we believe in simplicity applied with proper balance.
