REV is an international Architecture and Design office based in Paris, created by Cristiano Benzoni and Sophie Thuillier.
REV designs architectural environments driven by creativity, radical vision, useful technology, modernity (yet honouring heritage), tailored to Client’s identity, vision and desires. We help our Clients to create strong and durable architectural identities, ables to withstand the test of time.
Our comprehensive, global experience is based on a specific trans-disciplinary way of architectural thinking: we know how the architecture should never be confused with a trend.
All our projects, from architecture landmark to design pieces get the same care and attention.
We give the clients who entrust us a creative environment built on what’s durable and could take ideas to the next level.
We have built commercial and corporate buildings, luxury hotels, residential projects, office buildings, shopping malls and private residences worldwide.
