About 

I am a Spanish qualified architect with over 10 years of experience working in London (UK), currently working in New York.

During my career I had the opportunity to work on a broad range of new built and refurbishment projects across all tenures from affordable housing blocks to super-prime developments; with experience in delivering complex schemes, providing quality information to inform design decisions and project coordination through to completion stage, including substantial site experience.

Proficiency in both design and technical aspects of architecture, with a strong focus on new materials, innovative construction systems and technology applied to architecture.
