The Roman architectural office GAP Architetti Associati was created in 1992 by Federico Bilò and Francesco Orofino as the logical extension of a partnership developed in the halls of the Faculty of Architecture in Rome during the 1980s. Alessandro Ciarpella, member of the office since 1997, became a partner in 1998. Finally, in 2008, partnership was extended to Claudia Del Colle.
Throughout its activity, the office has worked primarily in four environments: residential design, restoration, urban design, landscape. The most important experiences in residential field include numerous competitions and the construction of temporary and permanent prototype housing units.
