Adding goals, hope, efforts and experiences, with a broad sense of curiosity and research-based methodology.

Our work is dedicated to the thoughtful conception of projects and careful crafting of buildings and spaces, exploring the intersection of contemporary design and building production. The Office has worked since its establishment at many different scales from diverse angles; completed works include various new and rehabilitation building works, collaborations with artists as technical support for the realization of constructive intervention and urban planning with a cultural or theoretical view.
Located where two rivers come together, the Confederación Hidrográfica Miño and Sil office building will be protected by the official use the building serves. Designed by VAUMM + Taperstudio, their compact and geometrically absolute design aims to turn the new equipment into a reference able to articulate that piece of city. Its pyramidal shape is due to programmatic, functional and corporation itself requirements. More images and architects’ description after the break.
The proposal for Zaldibar kindergarten by VAUMM is composed of two buildings, connected by playgrounds. The plan responds to a simple strategy of settlement on the site, which is to get the most out of this relationship between full and empty. The diversity of color and interior cladding, which can be used in each room, make contrast with the external image of two buildings designed to provide an oasis of calm in the stridency and disorder in the external environment.
