Residential Architecture and Other Spaces

Museums, markets, offices, single-family homes, libraries, convention centres, headquarters of international organizations, stages for shows, auditoriums, administrative buildings, cafeterias. In this section, various projects are collected: spaces for culture, work, prison complexes, commercial spaces and residential architecture.

The Importance of Design

We are aware that the environment determines identity. The spaces where we move, where we live, where we shop, where we work, and where we heal must improve our quality of life. We are interested in those who are not in the world of architecture, anyone who lives in a city, knowing and sharing the importance of adequate, comfortable and livable buildings for all humans.

Each of these architectural typologies has its specificities and the multidisciplinary team in charge of the design must be trained to understand them. In any case, all buildings must adapt to the needs of the territory they serve, they must incorporate nature and consume resources efficiently, and they must serve the users who will work or enjoy their spaces. They must comply with the regulations of the city, they must adapt to changes in functions over time, they must mutate to accommodate the transformations of those who occupy them, and they must build relationships between the activities they host and the society that develops them.

Some of these buildings stand out, radically, in the context in which they are located. While others, due to their use and activities, blend into the environment. But, in any case, at Pinearq we intend to design buildings that make up the city, that respond to the community they serve, and that allow for comfortable living.

The various forms of life materialize in various architectural forms: basic enclosures, containers of wonders, unique objects, transformer boxes, minimal structures… These forms, their materiality, light and nature condition how we relate to each other and the environment, how we move around and how we live. All the spaces that we design and build have an impact on people’s health, which is why we believe it is essential to follow the principles that we set out on this website. The architecture that heals is that which is projected for a place; that includes nature and natural light in all its conception; the one that humanizes complex spaces and tames high technology; the one that is specific to mutate, evolve and adapt.

Material Quality

The environmental and comfort qualities of all spaces — commercial, residential, industrial, tertiary, cultural, and leisure — are fundamental to the psychological and emotional balance of users. The spaces and their materialization must create favourable conditions for the physical and mental balance of people, since the immediate environmental conditions — those that make up the architectural spaces — affect and influence human well-being.

We believe that it is necessary to bet on a real evaluation process of the materials to materialize a construction. On the one hand, it is not enough to evaluate the consumption of the building: it is essential to know the operation and consumption of each chosen material. On the other hand, materialization is the material construction of that architectural project that, at a time like the present, is defined by speed, prefabrication and optimization of processes.
