ADAT is a multidisciplinary office focused on Integrated Design, from large-scale planning to interactive furniture and devices. With a vast network of employees, collaborators and consultants, the office develops projects from early concept to on site-supervision, always maintaining a rigorous approach oriented to a visionary concreteness.

We work with governments, municipalities, academics, corporations and private clients in Asia, the Americas and Europe, investigating new forms of urban and rural living with a flexible and curious attitude, without any preconceptions or absolute solutions.

The client, the site and the community always have specific needs that become concrete actions thanks to our mediation. For this reason, our process is always case-specific and tailored to the peculiarities of the challenge, solving complexity, and opening up to new visions.

Antonio Atripaldi and Andrea Debilio met in 2010 in Barcelona to start their research on technology and natural sciences applied to a new form of integrated design.

From 2011, for a decade, they developed their visions and professions collaborating with cutting edge architects such as Norman Foster, Nicholas Grimshaw, Carlo Ratti and Mario Cucinella and developing projects in more than 20 countries.

In 2022 Antonio and Andrea founded ADAT in Rome to combine their creative approach, a keen sensitivity to design, and an extensive knowledge of both design and construction technological processes to resolve complex design solutions in all scales.




Following a career as professional swimmer, Andrea Debilio graduated in Architecture/Interior Design at the School of Architecture “Valle Giulia” University of Rome “La Sapienza”, and obtained his Master in Advanced Architecture degree from the IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia) - UPC Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona.
