Practice Ideology

BAX studio is an international Barcelona-based practice directed by Boris Bežan and Mónica Juvera. Together with their team and a network of collaborators in different countries, they develop works whose quality and originality have been recognised by renowned international awards. BAX studio brings a reflective nature to architecture and centers its design process on finding, for each project, an idea that serves as a catalyst for solutions that are at once unique and effective.

This approach gives their architecture its coherence and originality, while their proven technical reliability enables them to work at a wide variety of scales. Spatial richness, dialogue with pre-existing features and feedback between architecture and public space are the inherent common criteria of their work.
