EXiT is an architecture studio, based in Treviso. It focuses on architectural and urban design as well as interior and landscape design and draws upon the collective professional experiences of its founders in Italy and Portugal.

In 2009 and 2011 EXIT was nominated one of the best emerging architecture firms in Italy by Giarch. The projects realised by the studio were displayed in the Italian Pavilion at the Shanghai EXPO 2010.
The projects were on display in the “Ventisettetrentasette” exhibition dedicated to emerging Italian architecture.

The works of the studio have been published on prestigious national and international magazines (Wallpaper*, Mark, A10, C3, Giornale dell’Architettura, L’Arca, Platform, Domusweb, Archdaily) and selected for “XII Premio architettura Città di Oderzo”, “Archdaily Building of the Year 2011”.

In 2011 EXiT won the “Barbara Cappochin Prize of Architecture – provincial section”. The founder partners of EXiT gave lectures in several Research Institutes and Universities.
