Davide Macullo (b. Giornico, CH, 1965) lives and works in Lugano, Switzerland.
Studied art, architecture and interior design.
For 20 years (1990-2010) he was project architect in the atelier of Mario Botta with responsibility for over 200 international projects worldwide. He opened his own atelier in 2000.
The ethos of the studio is one of ‘drawing from context’ and the various contributions promote a dialogue between the specificity of the project and the universality of the contexts. His work has been published and awarded both at home and abroad.

Current projects include the new Hotel Health and Wellness Palace Chenot in Weggis, Switzerland and Marbella, Spain, houses and residential buildings in Switzerland, a beachfront villa in Heraklion, Greece, the Crescent Chenot SPA in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The work of the studio includes graphic design, branding consulting and custom designed furniture, now in production and spans to the creation of contemporary art collections for clients.
In Rossa Calanca Valley in the Grison Canton, Davide has started an urbanistic program to promote the intervention in situ of international artists to influence daily life through contemporary art. The first building realized in collaboration with Daniel Buren will be followed by other ten artists.
