del Renzio & del Renzio LLP is an RIBA Chartered Architects Practice in Ramsgate, Kent, founded in 2014 by two brothers, Ivan and Pier-Luigi del Renzio. We are a young design-led practice with a focus on environmental design in architecture and complex art installations. We work on the renovation and regeneration of listed buildings, combined with contemporary new build projects, predominantly in Thanet and East Kent but also further afield in the South East.
We know how vital the sympathetic regeneration of existing buildings and the creation of new architecture is to seaside towns across the South East of England. We use this knowledge in our interpretation of a client’s brief, combining experience with a robust creative process akin to a larger scale architectural practice.
As two brothers who grew up in Ramsgate, we decided to return and set up our practice after studying and working in London. We have a life-long understanding of what makes Kent’s coastal towns unique. We know how the climate, the economy and the local community, shape the architecture and the lives of the people who use it.
We are actively involved in the community and are members of the Ramsgate Heritage Design Forum that promotes and advises on projects in the Ramsgate Conservation Area and Heritage Action Zone. We are also members of the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery Business Circle and members of the Tate Young Patrons, working to demonstrate the positive regenerative impact and social role art plays locally and nationally.
