is a multidisciplinary design practice founded by Lucia and Ito in Minneapolis, MN in 2018.
ルチア+いとうによる建築デザイン事務所。2018年ミネソタ州ミネアポリス設立。


LUCITO approaches each work as an open-ended process without preconceived notions of material, form and concept, wherein each intervention evolves out of an act of discovery and limitation.  Our process is one of finding the project through context, dialogue, historic reference, and material.
LUCITO’s current scope of project includes - 
New construction, Renovation, Interior Design and Graphic Design
Conceptual, Multi-media, Installation and Public Art

We are open to new collaborations and design opportunities.
