B+D+M ARCHITECTS

Via Zara 59, Padova, Italy

The architectural practice B+D+M Architects was set up in 2009, arising from the professional partnership of Alex Braggion, GianPaolo Di Benedetto e Paolo Meneghetti. The practice works in a variety of architectural scales, from architecture and urban renewal to landscaping, linking theoretical research to high technical professionality thanks to the collaboration with prominent engineering companies.
The research activity is documented by the attendance in workshops directed by Flavio Albanese, Joao Nunes, Luis Mansilla, Cino Zucchi, Werner Tscholl and Alvaro Siza Vieira and professional collaborations with Aurelio Galfetti and Joao Nunes. The practice carried out a new square in Arsego (Padua, 2000), a Gymnasium in Correzzola (Padua, 2005) , and won the competitions for the redevelopment of the historic center of Jesolo (Venice, 2010), the new city of health in Montebelluna (Treviso,2010), a new receptive and sports area in Sappada ( Belluno, 2011, with Atelier4Architetti), the Bernasconi Villa and land parcel in Lugano (CH, 2013, Atelier4Architetti), the New IRB Headquarter in Bellinzona (CH, 2016 – under construction, Atelier4Architetti). The practice has also obtained many awards, mentions and refunds in national and international architectural competitions, such as Padua Congress Centre (Padua, 2012, Atelier4Architetti), Beata Vergine Hospital Extension in Mendrisio (CH, 2016, Atelier4Architetti), the New Building for Life Sciences of the University of Lausanne (CH, 2016, Atelier4Architetti), House in Milanosesto (Sesto San Giovanni, 2018) and Noi Techpark (Bolzano, 2018, Atelier4Architetti).
In 2013 a residential work was selected as one of the most interesting works in Padua by the International Architecture award Barbara Cappochin and published in its catalogue. In 2016 another residential project was selected for the pubblication of the Italian Architect and Young Architectural Talent Prize organized by CNAPPC. Many works have been published in important national and international architectural reviews as Domus, Costruire, Archi (Switzerland) and UTET manuals.
Currently the practice is engaged in executing the new IRB (Institute for Research in Biomedicine) Headquarter in Bellinzona and in residential and commercial buildings in Padua, Venice, Jesolo and Bibione.
