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 project is located in a commercial centre in Pinares, Costa Rica.
This is the second local of the owners of Mocapan in the other side of the city. The idea was to bring the same concept as the first one and keep the same colors. The intention was to create an aesthetic closer to the bakery atmosphere.
Simplicity and clarity were the main directions to lead the organization of the space. The first floor is divided between the entrance where you can pick and go with your fresh coffee or stay and enjoy the second part with a panoramic view on Cerro Carpintera. Downstairs a second floor receive another space more quite opening on a large terrace connected to the nature.
The kitchen located downstairs is connected by an homemade elevator to carry up the freshly baked breads and pastry.
All the design aspects have been thought to match the identity and give a real feeling of warmness to the visitors.
