Studio Granma was founded in 1994 by a group of fellow graduates of the Politecnico di Torino – Marco Bosio (1966), Alessandra Coscia (1966), Andrea Geja (1965), Marco Peiretti (1965), together with Natalia Rosso (1966), who left the firm and started a different activity in 2002.
The studio was immediately drawn towards architectural and urban planning, focusing especially on urban regeneration, also thanks to the opportunities offered by the redevelopments happening in the city of Turin.
Following this path, over the years, several of the most important projects have been concentrated in some of the major former industrial areas located in the city and in its metropolitan suburbs, with interventions on a few of the historical manufacturing buildings such as Michelin, Officine Savigliano, GFT, Teskid Vitali, Alfa Romeo – Botticelli, Schiapparelli (pharmaceutical industry) and the Ferrero steel mill.
The design process of the studio deals with a variety of different subjects, ranging from residential to commercial, from nursing and assisted homes to entertainment areas, from shopping centres to public spaces, while the scale varies from interior design and renovations to urban masterplans.
Studio Granma’s projects have been displayed in 2005 at the "Architetti Italiani Under 50" exhibition during the Milan Triennale, in 2006 at the 10th International Architecture Biennale in Venice and in 2011 at the "KM011 Arti a Torino 1995-2011” exhibition. In October 2011 Studio Granma was invited to Padova to show the project for the Snos multipurpose centre at the "Superurbano. Rigenerazione urbana sostenibile" exhibition held during the International Architecture Biennale “Barbara Capocchin”.
