Our philosophy

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.

MOCAPAN SANTA ANA

Project Details
Mocapan Santa Ana is the third project with our client. We create an aesthetic in continuity with the last ones and with a slicker approach to make it a bit more elegant as it was a smaller place. The space of the commercial center allows a unique configuration, it’s compact and funcional. The kitchen needs and the sales points were the challenge of this project where all the clients needs must be integrated in a small area taking in consideration all the tecnical limitations. Five diferent confortable atmosphere were integrated in a unique space. Outside two benches for chilling out next to the garden, inside in front of the bar, one spot to sit alone to wait someone or to have a break, in the corridor space there is one long bench who connect a couple of tables for duo conversations and at the back there are group tables next to the window and cube’s table built-in to have a more private meeting space. All the design aspects have been thought to match the identity and give a real feeling of warmness to the visitors.
