Paolo Giachi lives and works between Milan and Pietrasanta, known as the “City of Artists”, in Tuscany. Having always been sensitive and in-touch with culture, fashion and the arts, he studied Architecture at the University of Florence, graduating with a thesis on Lighting. After obtaining his Masters in Architecture, Giachi continues as an assistant professor at the University, in the Department of Interior Design, until 1996 when he departs for Hong Kong where he is responsible for new retail projects for the Prada Group including stores for Prada, Miu Miu and Jil Sander. From Southern-most New Zealand and Australia, passing through Singapore, China, Korea and Taiwan, Paolo Giachi develops 100 new projects over the course of 4 years. A return to Italy, in 2000, brings Paolo Giachi to collaborate with Diego Della Valle on the creation and design of Tod’s and Hogan boutiques around the world. Soon after, in 2002, Paolo Giachi opens his first independent studio of Architecture in Milan. In Giachi’s work co-exist aspects of architectural risk and innovation as well as elements of measured balance. His close collaboration with some of the world’s most influential designers and entrepreneurs in fashion and retail, has made Paolo Giachi keenly aware of style and trends. A natural problem-solver, unafraid of design dilemmas, Paolo Giachi approaches each project with passion and great diligence, providing concrete solutions for his clients. Through the years, Giachi’s interest and respect for refined craftsmanship has resulted in his having a talented team of skilled artisans who execute with precision the many subtle and beautiful elements of Giachi’s interiors. Today the Paolo Giachi office is engaged in concept design, multibrand specialty store projects as well as inspired plans for private residences. In particular, the Louis Vuitton and Fendi stores in Florence, the Brioni stores in Rome and Florence, the Smythson stores in New York and Los Angeles as well as his 10-year collaboration with Jimmy Choo worldwide. Of the many private residences, a special note goes to a suggestive alpine home in St Moritz.
