Clinicaurbana is an architecture office. It designs and supervises the construction of interiors, new buildings and interventions in existing structures, regardless of a project’s nature, size and context. The practice was founded in 2005 by Matteo Sartori and Valentino Nicola, and is based in Treviso.
