About 

PAUL CREMOUX studio
WHO WE ARE

PAUL CREMOUX studio is an architectural firm committed to distinguished, sustainable eco-effective building designs. Our goal is to produce architecture that celebrates life, enriches the natural environmental and the human spirit.
Our method has a modern sensibility and is determined by an integrated concept that balances environment enrichment proposals, beauty and social responsibility with the client’s needs and desires.

We were recently interviewed by Project 40 TV. Our work has been exhibited at the MAM (Museum of Modern Art of Mexico City), and the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) among many others. We have been winners and finalists in several international contests and we are holders of several grants and scholarships like the CONACYT and FULLBRIGHT. We impart academic courses at the UNAM, IBERO, ANAHUAC, POLITECNICO and TEC DE MONTERREY. Educative institutions and universities at Mexico.


WHAT WE CARE ABOUT


Forty percent of the world’s energy is used by buildings. More than fifty percent of the greenhouse gases come from buildings and the construction industry. The way we design and build our spaces responds to the challenge we face as a civilization, considering alternative ways as a goal in the building process.

Adopting sustainable alternatives is not only a matter of progress, it is a matter of survive.

The way we produce, consume and get rid of the materials we use, as a result of the industrial revolution production methods, has proven to be unacceptable. We believe from an architectural point of view that everything that is built, must be part of the environment and have to positively interact with it, for that, we design in a responsible way.

We propose a new economic approach in the construction area where architecture contributes to enrich our planet.

We are with the new arising industrial revolution; intelligent, generous and sustainable.

The relation between the process and the final result is for us a parameter of paramount importance in the implementation of new ideas. We use our designs as the human resource that nature needs.

OUR MANIFESTO and COURSE OF ACTION

Design for abundance and diversity.  Work multidisciplinary. 
To design built environments that enrich the natural world. 
Produce clean energy.  Be part of the new industrial re-evolution.
