Apresentação e missão
The office’s work relies on a continuous joint reflection of diverse technicians and authors, who assure in all the stages of each project, a wide, plural and coordinated vision. The office’s work is founded on the conviction that architecture has a direct influence on the quality of our lives. Regardless of the dimension or scope of the project, in a house or in a regional plan, we search in every moment for the right answer to each of the questions we face, developing specific solutions to specific problems, based on a careful understanding of contexts and a creation of a broad and integrated vision. Architecture Engineering We work with engineering teams as a part of the design team, combining diverse fields of knowledge and experience to develop fully integrated and sustainable design solutions. We keep solid partnerships with key engineering firms, with whom we develop a permanently coordinated work, thanks to the applied project management technologies. We believe architecture should provide a unique experience of use, of each space or a sequence of them. The light, materials, color or the furniture are coordinated as part of a whole, converging to create a coherent image and that provides qualified experiences. Interiors Every single detail is important. We create whatever is needed to fulfill the particular necessities of each project. The pieces we created are today a collection of furniture freestanding from the context they were created for. Industrial Design Urban Design Consulting Project Management Models We apply a holistic approach in the study of cities, from the physiology of the territories were they were founded, their history and transformations, exploring programs and measuring their impacts. The team rounds up a broad collection of data to inform its design process. Producing graphical synthesis that enable every intervenient to reflect on the city and its capacity of change. Photographical and written records have the objective of providing an archive and models allow to show the propositions e discuss them. Analyzing, synthesizing and systematizing the present city, we open up the way to reflect on the city and communities of the future. The first step of the design process is to help clients evaluate and identify their needs. From strategic planning or the elaboration of a program, to a detailed spatial analysis, our consultancy aims to develop the most efficient solutions, both financially and in quality. The process is extended to the post-occupation stage, to help the inhabitants to enjoy the full potential of their new building. This follow up allows us to reflect and evaluate the results of each project. We work to provide an integrated service, from design to construction, until the production is finish and its delivered to the costumer. In all the process we rely on technicians working closely to the design team, providing a permanent assessment, monitoring the project, its budget and therefore its viability throughout its execution. The final goal, is to produce a project that optimizes the budget and the proposed levels of quality. Models are in the center of the design process. They communicate the project to the client more efficiently than any other mean and allow the team to explore aspects of further complexity. We produce models in the office as a tool of invention. They are produced alongside the first sketches of an idea until the end of the project. In the end they serve to create images for presentations, exhibitions, publications and press or short-films.
