  Architetto Mauro Monti

Mauro Monti was born in 1980 in Como and grew up in the small city of Misinto, located north of Milan.

He became very interested in design and technique subjects throughout the compulsory school.

During his teen-aged phase, in his spare moments, he has the luck to attend some technical offices, where he learnt the pleasure for the design and the practical and charming aspects of the site building.

For his nature, the arts high school with architectural orientation immediately appeared the most suitable school.

In 1982 he joined the faculty of architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan and contextually he started carrying out a series of apprenticeships, which kept him busy across the board in different structures for some years: from technical and architectural firms to companies belonging to the furniture branch in the “contract” division for home interior design.

His first important site experience occurred in 2004 when, on behalf of a renovation studio, he was called to reveal and sketch again the geometrical drawing of the vault situated in the throne room of the Royal Palace in Milan.

In 2006 he started working by the technical office of his father, who's a surveyor.

In the same year, while he was already working on the renovation and minor architecture projects linked to the territory, he managed to obtain the graduation in civil architecture.

After these experiences, in 2007 he developed his first important project regarding the residential field and, at the end of that year, he succeeded in achieving successfully the state certification exam.

In 2008 he joined the Landscape Planners Architects and Custodians Professional Association belonging to the district of Monza and Brianza. This step will make him become a freelance professional.

All this is followed by a series of projects both aimed to the property renovation and to the new construction, especially for the house environment.

The residence rural topic, including the interior design part, became for him a “mission” to reach using a univocal vision.

From 2009 Mauro Monti is a member of the Building Commission in the district of Misinto.

His creativity expanded spontaneously through the planning way regarding the volumetric delimitation, neighbouring with the territory and his most beloved subject: the wall, an element seen as the only limit consequently withdrawn inside space.

After years of enrolment in an association of Architects, Engineers and Surveyor in the high Milan zone, he became initially a counsellor and in 2012 he got the Vice President position.

Monti began to be more interested in architectural and functional projects, such as “the staircase”, “the step”.Connections between floors gained various formal aspects with different materiality, a new method for organizing space inside and outside the building, through iron job or reinforced concrete with a handmade character, developed for every single intervention.

As a result a new passion, connected to the creation of something unique and beautiful inescapable from functional aspect, arises in Monti's mind.

In December 2013 he won the election as counsellor for the Landscape Planners Architects and Custodians Association belonging to the district of Monza and Brianza.

The architectural products realized up to now represent a growing statement of the continuous research on the formal aspect and the minimal art compatible with the place, interchanging small operations with more remarkable projects.

Monti has also been the president of this association.
