Our design philosophy is based on a constant search for innovation, but always user-focused and with a great respect for the environment. We believe that architecture is art, but it must have functional utility to the user, be comfortable and adapt to the site. Architecture should provide a variety of human sensations, it must create a connection between the user and the city, between the site and the environment, and it must be useful, logical, beautiful and sustainable.
Our main interest is creativity and design, from small to large scale, whether furniture, interior spaces, or large buildings. We approach every project with the same mentality: be innovative, be sustainable and pay attention to detail.
We believe that design is the solution that responds to a detailed analysis of use, context and requirements. Before designing a single line, everything must be taken into consideration, that way, the result will be straight forward and always as an answer to solve its mission. Data and information must be ordered and structured visually with all their context in order to provoque concepts and ideas that responds to them, the interrelation and integration of these ideas will form the basis of the design.
SUSTAINABLE AND BIOCLIMATIC DESIGN
The bioclimatic design is one that achieves optimal conditions of habitability with minimum energy consumption through a complete adaptation to its climate and environment. Architecture intelligently designed through eco-technologies to be self-regulated, ideally self-sufficient, where energy consumption is minimised for its operation, resulting in lower monthly family economic expenses.
It is mostly to use free sources of natural energy such as natural air to cool the rooms, heat the water by means of the sun, ensure better thermal insulation and window projection to avoid heating the interior spaces, which reduce the use of air conditioning in most of the year, and be able to avoid energy and economic waste, as well as avoid environmental pollution with the waste generated, achieving a healthier home with visible benefits in the short and long term.
USER FOCUSED DESIGN
We believe the user must be the center and purpose of design, architecture must be functional and confortable. User focused design is an iterative design process in which design is focused on the user and their needs in each phase of the design process. Generally, each iteration of the design approach involves four distinct phases. First, to understand the context in which users will use the spaces.
Then, to identify and specify the users’ requirements. A design phase follows, in which the design is developed as solutions. Then, the design is processed to an evaluation phase, the design is evaluated against context and user requirements to check how well will perform. From here, design must be further iterated on these four phases and continue until the evaluation results are satisfactory.
User focused design considers the whole user experience, from start to finish, including day and night, seasons of the year, present and future.
We believe in design innovation, new and fresh creative ideas, constant improvements, performance and growth. Innovation always sees ahead, does not conform to what is established, questions what exists and seeks new methodologies, is what puts someone ahead of the rest. Innovation in design generates unique experiences, gives more meaning to space and makes architecture something remarkable.
Design innovation also includes new processes to make the client part of the design, through better communication, understanding and immersive visualisation.
