Studio Tamassociati is an Italian team of architects based in Venice since 1996.[1] The practice's main architects are Raul Pantaleo (born 1962 in Milan), Massimo Lepore (born 1960 in Udine) and Simone Sfriso (born 1966 in London).[2]

They specialise in sustainable architecture and are frequently involved in social and humanitarian projects. Tamassociati are particularly known for their work for Emergency, an Italian non-governmental organization providing treatment for civilians in war zones worldwide. Tamassociati designed health care buildings for Emergency in Sudan, Sierra Leone, the Central African Republic and Nicaragua.[3] Their Salam Centre for Cardiac Surgery in Khartoum, which opened in 2010, received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2013.[4]
