VG13 Architects is the practice led by Tommaso Fantini (1992) and Alberto Rossi (1992).

We invest ourselves in every project we work on, always engaging in an intellectual research throughout which we are able to realize our idea of architecture.
The aim, nonetheless, is never theoretical, but focused on creating buildings of striking quality that can have an intrinsic value of beauty and solidity.


Each of our projects takes its premises from a precise intention and become defined through a caring constant work.

Along the process we are definitely influenced by various external aspects — being them climatic, financial, legislative… —, but never to the extent in which our intention is no longer evident and visible.

The office has build in Italy, Switzerland and Morocco and has won awards and prizes in international competitions.


The office has led design studios at Università Federico II in Napoli, at Università di Genova and at the Hochschule Biberach in Germany, and have been invited for lectures and critics in several occasions.

Tommaso is assistant and researcher at USI — Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio and Alberto has been teaching assistant at ETH in Zürich. Both Tommaso and Alberto graduated from USI – Accademia di architettura in 2017, respectively with Walter Angonese and Valerio Olgiati.
