Maria Elena Fauci is graduated with honour in 1993 at the Faculty of Architecture in Palermo, Italy. After having cooperated two years with the University, as researcher for the subjects “Architectural planning 1 and 2” with the chaired Professor Mario Giorgianni, she started a collaboration with the Polytechnics of Milan. At that time she was involved to work for the City plan of Biella together with Gae Aulenti architects. In 1996 she became partner of her family company Studio di Architettura e Urbanistica in Italy. Then she had occasion to work, for several years, at the realization of the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sciacca, which is the most luxurious tourist accommodation of Sicily (www.roccofortehotels.com).


Since 2007 she moved to Holland in Vinkeveen, where she settled down her new office under the name MEF architects. Like in Italy, the firm focuses on the design of private villas, dwelling projects, plans of lots and hotels with special attention to interior design and furniture, which are conceived in harmony in both modern and elegant contexts. As interior architect she started a professional cooperation with HuisGenoten (www.huisgenoten.co.nl). A group of experts in the field of architecture, furniture and finish, provide for high quality architecture and interior projects in the form of a total package.


However, her passion is not restricted to creating architecture: In 1997, she set up the magazine ‘Aa’, for the Council of Architects in Agrigento. She also writes for other international publications in Italy, mainly for Compasses (www.compasses.ae/magazine), which is issued in Dubai. As blogger and reviewer for en.presstletter.com, she was selected by AIAC (Italian Association about Architecture and criticism) as one of the best young studio in the world.


Besides these activities she gives lectures about Italian architecture and design in different popular universities and institutions in The Netherlands.
