Practice Ideology – Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos
Located in Valencia, Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos is an architecture and design studio with a long professional activity and a strong family character. The scope of work has been wide and varied, bringing together national and international projects of different scales and uses: from single-family housing to office buildings, residential developments or public facilities.
The passion with which each new design process is approached is distilled in each of the phases, from the initial sketches to the execution of the work, with a business scale that allows us to maintain exhaustive control of this evolutionary development. The fruit obtained is the configuration of contemporary spaces that transmit harmony and timelessness through formal syncretism and geometric abstraction, together with the warmth that emanates from the materiality and a special care in the constructive detail perceptible in the execution.
Innovation and the revision of pre-established ideas are the starting point of architectural competitions, a format that has meant a constant commitment to study and a path of conceptual research. Participation in both private and public competitions has been recognised with the awarding of prizes and mentions from notable institutions such as the “Fundación de Arquitectura Contemporánea”, the “Empresa Municipal de la Vivienda y el Suelo de Madrid” or the “Club de Tenis de Valencia”. This recognition has also been endorsed by the publication of projects in prestigious national and international magazines specializing in architecture, design and interior design.
