About 

I'm a very passionate architect and designer with a special interest in Adaptive Reuse, Interior Design and Sustainable Environments. Always taking care of the little details that makes a place special and how with even the smallest intervention we can create great experiences filled with new sensations. 

My passion started in Architecture school in Venezuela, where I started to understand the meaning of creating spaces, and also developed a new kind of sensibility. Traveling to many places in the world, from America to Europe, from Europe to Asia, gave me new perspectives, new concerns and new passions.

Always looking for new opportunities, and new experiences to continue developing my practice in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Adaptive Reuse, Art Installation, Interior Design and Sustainable Environments.
