Firm Description

Several main intentions guide the way we work. The first is the search for an idea to guide every project, because we pretend to develop an architecture based on the concept and not in form. The shape is a consequence. A multidisciplinary team works through a system of layers, which decants each project’s idea by a slow approach, finding the idea little by little, carving it. First is the thought, the speculation, the reflection from the origin; then, the confrontation with reality, the design and construction.

Experience and experimentation, common sense and risk are part of our style of work. A careful reading of the status of each project, of its circumstances and specificity, give us the keys to find the idea. We always think from the origin, looking at the origin. (No preset ideas)

Constructive logic and also what we call construct action are essential to build on our projecting experience. Construct is build, is to make an edifice, but in its most intimate sort is to merge elements under construction laws. What then is to project? Projecting and constructing for us are the same action.

Each project is an adventure, a journey of which we only know the beginning and we don’t even suspect its end, the various possible ends. We are interested in the route, in the force of thought, so the studio is involved in each project, seeks risks, fail, experiment, innovate … gets dirty as Karl Kraus (The task of the artist) said: “The artistic painter and the broad brush painter have in common the fact that they get their hands dirty at work. Exactly what distinguishes a journalist from a writer”.
