Riccardo Melchionna

I was born and raised in a little town in Lake Como in the northern region of Italy. As a child, I’ve always had a creative mind and have been very passionate about hand-drawings and model-making. This inspired me to attend Mendrisio Academy of Architecture in Switzerland where I received a Master’s of Science in Architecture in 2017. As a university student, I’ve learned how to put these passions into a design process in order to create an architectural piece, with a connection between space, light and the environment. After working for 2 years at an architectural firm in Florence, I decided it was time for a life changing experience.
Less than two months ago, I moved to Southern California and I started working at McClean Design. Presently, I am practicing new approaches to architecture and assisting in the design process with 3D models, drawings, and presentations.
When I’m not designing, you can find me hiking with a camera in my hand.
