Carlo Graf von Rex is an architect of German and Italian descent born and brought up in the Maremma region of Southern Tuscany. He divides his time between Capalbio and Florence where his architecture firm is established. His international background accounts for his noted ability to blend a strong aesthetic sense with the practical, both influenced by his keen interest for ecological questions and the green economy. He joined an architectural firm as a student and qualified as an architect in 1994 with a degree in Architecture at the University of Florence. His first projects in 1995 led to the founding of his own firm, building a specialised team of young architects and engineers together with landscape and interior designers. His firm has established a strong reputation for its pronounced ability to juxtapose the old with the new. Known for his combination of originality and concrete project management, his firm has worked, in particular, in the fields of new urban planning, major residential developments and specialised agricultural projects. Frequently these projects involve the restructuring and integration of already existing buildings. Restoration has also played an important role in his firm’s portfolio with recognition for the sensitive and well-researched retrieval of old monuments
