David Meana, Ignacio Navarro, Iñigo Palazón, Ricardo Fernández estudio DIIR

estudio DIIR is an architecture firm based in Madrid founded in 2018 by David Meana, Ignacio Navarro, Iñigo Palazón and Ricardo Fernández, all of them architects from the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM).

Their work has received national and international recognition. In 2018, they were awarded the first prize for the construction of a new cultural center in Los Molinos (Madrid). At the beginning of 2019, they won the first prize to design the landscaping of Villamayor de Gállego (Zaragoza). And in 2020, they won first prize to design the Plasencia social health center (Cáceres). In addition, they have recently been selected among five finalists at the international level to design the Museum of Archeology and Prehistory of Santander.

The strategic and conceptual positioning developed in the various project competitions in which they have been awarded is transferred to domestic spaces. From offices and shops to renovations and homes, the DIIR studio explores different ways to achieve uniqueness through innovation and rigor.
