Practice Ideology

Text as submitted by the Firm

We think of an architecture that works with the existing place, tries to understand people and their ways of living, their expectations, understanding their particular conditions and use them as opportunities where possible.  We work the landscape and cultural identity to highlight it or recover it to create an appropriation that leads to an improvement in the quality of life and community cohesion, our goal is to produce an architecture that truly belongs to a certain place and community.

​We have extensive experience in working with Foundations, imaginary workshops and participatory architecture in remote rural areas that have suffered the brunt of the conflict and social problems of the country. We firmly believe in the accompanying the community and provide them with tools for the creation of a new imaginary of the rural and urban landscapes.​
