profile

HYPNOS is an italian architecture firm founded in Milan by Nicola Brembilla in 2010. HYPNOS takes its name from the ancient greek divinity that brings dreams, enchantment, but also oblivion. Doing architectural projects -today- means mainly re-utilizing already existing things. It is therefore essential to be able to forget, erasing or bringing to the background, the chaotic and incongruous sediments of previous lives, to leave room for the authentic sense of things and places. There can not be effective design project today, without a precautionary reduction from multiplicity arbitrariness to crystalline essence.

Office

Hypnos works with a different method compared to other architecture office. This method is based on the action of two distinct operative units: one conceives the projects, while the other physically realizes them.
A team of architects works mainly in the office for drafting projects and produce technical and administrative practices, while a team consisting of a master builder and his workers operate on site next to the construction company, then replacing it to complete the interior customized finishing.
In 2014, Hypnos launch its new headquarters by renovating an abandoned factory in the middle of the most dynamic neighborhood of Milan.
The big loft hosts other companies, thus creating a kind of multi-service agency that is able to deal the most diverse needs of our customers.

  • Architecture

    Our architecture is always an essential act of selection that goes from chaos to minimum.
    Each transformation process is driven by an absolute care and understanding of places.
    Professional practice and artistic inspiration are combine to pursue one goal: the fascination of physically realized object.


  • Interior design

    We transform anonymous interiors in comfortable space of great personality.
    With micro-actions of “acupuncture” we revolutionize any type of interior space, redefining functionality and emphasizing the aesthetic impact.
    Attention and care to the project implementation through the building site are two inseparable factors.


  • Objects

    An open collection of industrial design runs parallel to the firm’s linguistic research.
    Each object always comes from someone needs that we try to satisfied in the shortest possible time and with less waste of materials and resources.
    We call this approach Instant Design.

Architecture is not a building. It is the research for a profound meaning that precedes and surpasses every specific design opportunity. Before places, form and matter there is always a conceptual essence that requires to being told through words.

Architecture is a public matter, even when it comes from a private commission. Our logbook is updated about our presence in books, magazines, exhibitions and events. It also brings you inside the backstage of construction sites and artisan workshops, where the architecture is materially produced.
