Manifest

Our joint activity is a result of a common vision of vocation and commitment.

Our activity is based on the 3 legs that we consider necessary to get coherence and depth: building, teaching and researching.

We consider architecture as a way of life more than as a simple job.

We consider architecture as a way of looking and interpreting reality around us.

We consider architecture as the joint result of logic and poetic, of reason and intuition.

We consider architecture as the materialization of the time by means of the creation of space and form: matter, time, space and form are some of our tools, and the magic of architecture issues from their suitable syntax.

We believe that architecture must be a humanist activity, at the service of society, on track to improve the environment in which everyday life is carried out and, therefore, aimed at improving people’s life.  

We believe that architecture must be daughter of her time and at the same time aspire to timelessness, it must position in the present and look to the future without losing the references to the past.

We believe in simplicity, naturalness, austerity, economy of resources, the respect for the environment, accuracy and constructive precision. 

Architecture should be able to establish places, to be a place by itself.

Architecture is a constructed idea and, therefore, it is transcended construction.

Architecture should give a proper response to the site, the climate, the culture, the programme, the building technique and the economic resources it has.

Architecture, in this present world, should be global and local at the same time.

We admire popular architecture because it has survived throughout time as a result of logic and common sense, simplicity and adaptation to the environment wherever it is.

We admire natural and noiseless architecture that does not create problems, but solves them.

We admire the architecture that improves with the passing of time.

We admire beauty and what has been made with dedication.

Team

Our philosophy, based on the detailed and accurate development of the project and its work, is possible thanks to a small but committed team. We share a way of doing which main goal is to improve our environment and people’s lives.

Besides the continuing work with Koldo Fernández Gaztelu for more than 10 years (Gaztelu Jerez Arquitectos), from our beginnings it is necessary to stand out the following ones:
