Our aim is to propose architecture that responds to complex program requirements and to different scales of planning. Our projects are characterized by a meticulous attention to detail and a straightforward design. We try to create buildings to be lived, as a result of a deep reflection on the several aspects architectural process involves, such as functionality, technique and economy. The client’s need is the centre of our research. Our design is produced also by the strong collaboration with promoters, makers, administration and future users.
Our commitment to bioclimatic and ecological architecture doesn’t consist only in the application of specific technologies, but also put emphasis on a logic based on the adaptation to the context and the positive use of environment, cultural, economic, technology and social circumstances.
Since 2015, Gabriel Verd Arquitectos and Buró4 join to share experiences, team and talent. This partnership allows gathering knowledge coming from the two trajectories, where high quality design, responsible urban planning and environmental sustainability are the pillars which support their alliance.
