We design for those who aspire to make a change in their lives, for people who invest in their future, for those who believe that architecture can change the way we live, for those who want to achieve their goals, for those who want to support local communities and be actors of change.
We do architecture, we give contextual answers to problems of individual and/or collective scale where we bring our experience and vision to create experiences and spaces according to the needs of their users and in intelligence with the parameters of the environment.
We believe in the constant optimization of our creative process. Each project enriches the next one with new knowledge in the way of designing or building. Research on new materials (bamboo, containers, steel frame…) and unique and timeless designs are the key to satisfy our clients. We look for the right tools to analyze, design and build according to the requirements of the client, the site and the context. We work hand in hand with professionals in each area who accompany us and help us to engineer optimized solutions by crossing perspectives and fields of expertise.
When we choose to initiate a project with our client, it is the beginning of a new fruitful relationship where the exchange contributes to translate great ideas into significant achievements.
Our firm base is in Costa Rica where we work in a tropical ecosystem that facilitates experimentation. The contact with nature allows us to develop our creativity and ingenuity to the maximum in order to build projects in perfect harmony with the environment. Continuous travels and contacts with local architecture worldwide in France, Japan, Denmark, Tunisia, Italy, Mexico, among others enrich our perspective of the world in which we live.
The remodeling of the House of Hilde tries to understand the need to return to the essential being of the inhabitant. We try in this project to modernize the space based on the needs of the family. The children and away from the house left a space full of symbols and memories in which the owner wanted to take over the space and create a new space youth. She wanted to be able to receive her children in a modern space and transformed to what she had always dreamed of, a very functional space, very clean and orderly, an almost therapeutic change to re-find herself, develop her daily activities and receive friendships in a universe own. The design in this sense is very epurated with simple lines, light and shadows that give warmth to very monochromatic spaces. The kitchen has been the main focus of attention in which it was proposed to develop a central island to create a link with both the dining room and the living room with the new corridor connecting the view to the internal patio developed as a covered garden. The spaces of transition take a very vivid color since only transited give much warmth and reinforce the fluidity of the connections between spaces.
