Cartagena, ES



Since 2010 I co-lead Bipolar Estudio, a working platform that allows me to develop my own projects and establish partnerships with other professionals providing them technical and graphic support in their proposals.

Currently I'm looking for new opportunities for international work.



BIPOLAR ESTUDIO. Arquitectura & Diseño, Cartagena, ES, Founding Partner

Bipolar Studio is an architectural office which combines architecture and creative design. Founded in 2010 by Sofía Sanchez and Rafael Perez, it has been brewing by means of professional collaborations with different architecture and industrial design bureaus since 2005.

Nowadays we develop global projects in a personal way integrating the interior design, graphical communication and the most suitable architectural solution. In addition we establish independent collaborations with other architectural and engineering agencies in order to contribute to their project development offering technical and graphical support in their proposals.
