In 1992 she received her degree with honours in architecture at the University of Turin, Italy.

She has worked in several architectural firms including Gregotti Associati International, Dordoni architetti, CLS architetti and Studio Laviani, and as a professor at the University of Milan and the Domus Academy of Milan.


After graduating from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany with a degree in Architecture in 1997, in 2002 she obtained a Master in Architecture and Urbanism at the Architectural Association in London with Patrick Schumacher of Zaha Hadid Architects. For her studies abroad she received a scholarship from the DAAD. She has collaborated with several architecture firms, including Gregotti Associati International, Foster and Partners and Durisch+Nolli Architetti.


The cappa+stauber architect network is always looking for new spatial solutions for contemporary life and the urban landscape that work in synchronicity with their surroundings and functional needs. They believe that architectural practice is based both on the vision of free minded spirits and on the respect for rules, boundaries and cultural surroundings. The result is high quality architecture derived from the continuity of the design process and an intensive dialogue with the client, consultants and final users.
Working closely together ensures the best outcome through a synthesis of concept, beauty and functional integration. The firm has managed to remain small and will continue to do so in order to maintain a direct, hands-on approach and to ensure the uniqueness of each project.
