The office’s work has been characterized by the broad thematic diversity of the assignments requested. The professional work developed itself within different areas; Institutional, industrial, education, residential, real estate and services, with more than 3 million square meters built. We have an outstanding national and international participation in several works. The office has been involved permanently in the Chilean Architectura Biennal. with national and international awards and publications.
The office is internally organised by dividing the team into 5 workshops, all with their own leaders. The office has a permanent team of 45 professionals, including architects and administrative, and is able to incorporate up to 60 professionals, depending on the projects. Due to the size and scale of the projects, the office has been among the three most important architectural offices in the country for the last 20 years. We use modeling software and organize our work in a BIM platform. The working approach of the teams is based on the strategy in the relations with the project, from the time allocated to the various stages, and the responsibilities delegated.
