TRE architecture works collaboratively with clients to create Sustainable, Livable and Beautiful architecture.
Derived from the Italian translation of the number three, TRE reflects not only an indelible term and a reference to the founder's Italian heritage, but a larger branding effort to emphasize the firm's commitment to inspired architecture. TRE is fitting, simple and memorable.
The number three is quite prominent in the earliest surviving written work on the subject of architecture: De architectura, by the Roman architect Vitruvius in the early 1st century CE. According to Vitruvius, a good building should satisfy the three principles of utilitas, firmitas and venustas, which translate roughly as – commodity, firmness and delight. With today's world in mind, TRE has refreshed these terms to Sustainable, Livable and Beautiful.
These three principles are as relevant today as they were in ancient Roman times.
