Architect Vittorio Simoni is an avid and passionate trav- eller. While the purpose is not explicitly to view architectural showpieces or the work of colleagues, the journeys are intrinsic to his practice. To Simoni travelling represents an opportunity to hone his powers of observation, to rekindle the sense of wonder about all that his eyes alight upon. This intensity of gaze is Simoni’s way of absorbing the world around him.
Vittorio Simoni (°1954, Genk) is one of Belgium’s most prominent architects and interior designers. In 1987, he started his own architecture firm in Hasselt. What began as a one-man business quickly matured into a thriving company with a dozen employees. Simoni’s work is highly diverse in its scope, ranging from private homes to public buildings, shops, hotels, luxury resorts, museums and restaurants. Simoni Architects is not only active in Belgium but also Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, Dubai, Japan, Bangkok, Cu- racao and Indonesia. Besides his work as an architect, Vittorio Simoni is a professor at Hasselt University. Simoni’s innovative architecture defies stereotypes and typologies. Individual situations receive their own architectural solutions, with location-specific aesthetics and personalities. Stichting Kunstboek published a retrospective of his design methodology in 2008, under the title Situational Architecture.
