About 

A dynamic, self-motivated and highly qualified architect and designer with seven years experience running my own architecture company. I have been working over the last seven years as an architect in my own office in Granada and Tenerife, Spain, designing, creating and constructing several kinds of original buildings and urban spaces.

After completion of my architectural studies, I decided to extend my training with two master´s degrees both in urbanism and planning and architecture and historical heritage.

Recently, I got the highest qualification in my final project called “Heritage Strategies for the Recovery of Property Relations, Transits and Transitions Between the Alhambra and Granada”.” by the University of Seville and Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage (IAPH) of the Department of Culture of the Andalusian Government.

Awards 

FIRST PRIZE for my proposal in the “Avenida de la Constitucion de Granada” Urban Renovation Competition, Granada. Spain. (City Council of Granada,Spain), 1st Place

Avenida de la Constitución is the main access to the city from the northwest and it leads to the beginning of the historical center and, at the same time, connects the two major centers such as La Caleta square (council, hospitals...) and Triunfo Square (Financial Center, Government of Andalusia,...).

The conversion made from the original layout of the early twenty century meant the destruction of the green areas of the original boulevard, to allow enough space for cars.

This proposal means a change of the current situation, where pedestrian space prevails, it would create a new green urban corridor that allows movement, both longitudinal and transverse, and where there are smaller, formal spaces for activities such as theater, swings for children, exhibitions, information of the city, etc.
