"Luxury is not a matter of expensive materials, but of light and geometries, of sacred meanings and harmonies. Luxury is the sublimation of beauty, when beauty becomes poetry, whisper of grace, when our soul, of the beauty, feels the embrace."


White Oak Arkitecture is an Italy-based architecture firm, founded in 2017 by Thomas Allocca, designer, journalist, expert of low-energy, low-carbon, wood-based building systems, in accordance with the aims of the Aalborg Charter and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations Organization, to which White Oak Arkitecture contributes, with tree-centric low-carbon projects, bamboo botany research, realty and forestry investments.

Production and building are the most delicate processes. The great part of the work is planned, developed and managed in partnership with Italian suppliers and manufacturers. The best timber that we use comes mostly from northern America (white oak, red/white cedar, excelsior ash), and from Scandinavia (larch, fir, pine).


The division investments is focused on four sectors: research and development of new building systems, implementing seismic resistance, thermal efficiency, carbon footprint; realty investments (buying, renovating, selling, or building brand-new and selling; botany research on bamboo; carbon credits and timber plantations.
