Paolo Volpis Architects strives for originality and delivers designs that will have unique features and character.

Paolo Volpis, the Principal of the firm, is an Italian born who had the chance to study Architecture attending top Universities in Italy and in the States where he graduated with honors thanks to his innate ability of adaptation and innovation within strict requirements. His architectural language ranges from authentic Italian-Mediterranean to Hi-tech and post-modern style.




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 bringing the outside in through fenestration and open view, but also expressing architectural elements and forces that connect from the outside in and vice-versa. The natural environment and the climate found in Marina Del Rey, California, is an excellent fit for our design philosophy.

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.
