Andrew Azzopardi & Christina Robev

FOUNDERS

Christina (Tinka) Robev and Andrew Azzopardi are graduates of the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, where they met in 2012. The couple, who have over 15 years combined experience in the field of architecture and design, moved to Victoria in early 2014, quickly fell in love with the city, and began flexing their creative muscles. Soon, Studio Robazzo (Robev + Azzopardi) was born. While Christina is fascinated with foreign languages (she speaks 6) and graphic design, Andrew is a self-described “parametric design and digital fabrication junkie” as well as an electronic musician and card magician.

Our Values


  1. Aim for Amazement

    Our most obvious focus is creating functional beauty for our clients and their users. Our work demonstrates attention to every detail, including material, colour, texture, form, transparency, weight and size, and the way in which these factors weave together to inspire a sense of wonder in the observer. These, however, are just the basics. We use robots and algorithms to bring ideas to life and create the coolest possible stuff for your audience to remember you by.

  2. honest integrity

    Because we like to make sure everything is fair and professional, we are committed to maintaining honesty, integrity and transparency in our relationships with our clients, staff and collaborators. We strive to treat everyone around us with respect and communicate clearly at every stage of the process.

  3. environmental, social & economic Sustainability

    We know the earth needs protection now more than over, and we make daily decisions to reduce our footprint and contribute to a more sustainable planet. We always strive to use natural materials (primarily wood and corn-based 3D printing filament), and won the Vancouver Island Eco-Star Award in 2016 for sustainable manufacturing.
