Presentation

Our studio was founded in the year 2012 and now we have offices in Spain (Costa Brava) and Russia (Moscow). In both countries we provide services in the areas of architecture, interior design, town planning and landscaping; offering an integral attention in all the stages of the design process, from the initial conceptualization to the execution of the work.

We devote ourselves to the production of contemporary architecture, which tries to respond both to our time and to the context where it is inserted. We avoid the proposals that imitate historical styles since they finally turn into caricatures of the past completely incoherent with current living conditions.

Our practice is based on the experience obtained in our work in other architectural offices, in different countries, as well as on our previous liberal activity. In our portfolio we count with a wide variety of building types, of diverse scales, from single-family houses and residential complexes, up to office blocks, hotels and public buildings. At present we are working in several projects, both in Russia as in Spain and at collaborations with other studies of different countries.

We tackle the projects always bearing in mind aspects as the available constructive techniques, the correct use of the materials, the period to be fulfilled, the cultural peculiarities of the place, the needs and possibilities of the client, the current regulations, etc. In every country we have a team of consultants in all the specialties that complement the work of the architect (engineers, topographers, geologists, builders, etc). Every project becomes an open process, where the collaboration with clients and specialists is permanent and whose result is a tailored response to its particular set of circumstances.
