Eugenio Giuseppe Vacca


Eugenio is committed to high quality design and has through his projects shown a distinguished ability to harmonise contemporary architecture in sensitive historic settings.

He was born in Cisternino, a gleaming Mediterranean historical town in the heart of Puglia, in Southern Italy. 

 Eugenio studied at ETSAS of Seville and University of Pescara where he graduated with honours with a thesis about conservation. He followed his training at Northumbria University of Newcastle attending a course on Revit Architecture at BIM Academy where he developed a keen interest in BIM, VR and 3D visualisation. In 2016 he fully qualified as an Architect in Italy and became a member of OAPPC of Brindisi.   

 Prior to joining AV Architects in 2017, Eugenio had worked at a range of eminent Italian firms where he has gained extensive experience taking a lead role on several high end residential schemes ranging from £150K-£2m, but his work and experience have spanned many sectors. These include education, luxury accommodation and major cultural projects across Italy, Spain, Senegal, Peru and Nigeria.

 He has been project architect at Moramarco+Ventrella where he successfully contributed to the development of the multi-award winning scheme for the contemporary extension of “MALI”, the Art Museum of Lima. Since 2016 Eugenio has also led, from concept to delivery,  several large refurbishments at Flore & Venezia working on UNESCO-listed buildings including the iconic hotel “Borgo Canonica”.

 Since joining the firm, Eugenio has been involved predominately in refurbishments and extensions where he has delivered an outstanding level of creativity and certain use of contemporary vocabulary. With his methodological approach for design and his contagious enthusiasm for modern responses to traditional architecture he has already surpassed our expectations.
