About

Bio

An architectural practice founded in 2018 by Alonso Atienza Sánchez & Miguel Ángel Maure Blesa, both architects by the Polytechnic University of Madrid (ETSAM) with an academic year at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

Our projects are focused on new construction and rehabilitation at all scales. We perceive architecture from an eclectic and hedonistic continuity with tradition and local context, approaching it with the possibilities offered by contemporary construction techniques.

We understand that the architect should be, paraphrasing Loos and Coderch, a mason who has studied Latin with one foot tied to his land.

 

Collaborators

To date: Jordi Prat Lanza, André del Río Ares, Pablo Hernando, Juan Muñoz, Pol Mateo, Clara González.
