The practice is consciously international in its outlook, with approximately 25 people from different countries, working from a 19th century apartment in the centre of Barcelona. Most of our collaborators have grown professionally within the practice, and this allow us to have a strong experience of working in a collaborative manner. The background and skills of all collaborators allow the practice to have a wide range of perspectives, which guarantees as a core aim the delivering of projects of the highest calibre.
