Practice Ideology

Zooco is an architectural studio founded in 2009 by Miguel Crespo Picot, Javier Guzmán Benito, and Sixto Martín Martínez, architects of the School of Architecture of Madrid. The studio covers a wide spectrum from a design perspective, from large-scale buildings to furniture design. The adaptation of solutions to the client and their needs and the use of a timeless language are the hallmarks of a studio in permanent search of new challenges.

Currently, they have offices in Madrid and Santander, where they develop projects both nationally and internationally. The work during these ten years covers more than 50 works published in national and international specialized media, some of which have been recognized in various awards such as the prestigious Design Vanguard 2019, NAN Construction 2019 + 2020, Frame Awards 2020, or the European 40 under 40 2020. Recently, Zooco has been chosen by Forbes magazine as one of the 100 most creative Spanish people in the business world.

Their philosophy consists of approaching any type of assignment, regardless of its scale, budget and program, with the same attitude and creative ambition. Applying the same process searching for the most appropriate and valuable solution, both from an artistic and functional point of view. In a world as changing and fleeting as today, they look for architectural and spatial solutions that stand the pass of time, that endure through the constant irruption of trends and fashions, which is the phenomena that cause an immediate expiration of most creative proposals. One of their main objectives is to present design as an added value. They support the client throughout the process of creation and construction of the project, from the first contact until the start-up of the business, advising on all aspects that interfere in the final result.
