Architect - Interior Architect - Project Manager

45 years • Barcelona

Summary

Initially practising as an interior architect, I have worked in studios from Spain, USA, UK and Japan. I then ran my own studio in London where I was commissioned to design and build high end commercial, residential and hospitality projects worldwide. I formalised my interest for architecture by graduating as architect RIBA in 2012. During my time working at the different offices I have been involved on several commercial and residential projects worldwide, including studies with Fujimoto & Toyo Ito and Shigeru Ban. With ZHA I have worked on 1000 Museum in Miami, Esfera in Mexico.
