César Amarante, Ariel Galera, Francisco Villamil. Estudio Galera

Estudio Galera. Architecture practice founded by César Amarante, Ariel Galera and Francisco Villamil. It is dedicated to the design, management and construction of architectural constructions providing complete solutions and appropriate responses to challenges. In this sense, the architectural studio becomes the right place to reformulate conventional issues related to architecture considering the environment, climate, economic and personal factors that might affect those people who will inhabit those places.

The methodology consists of the collection of data and analysis of the problem from different points of view towards ensuring the best results. Thus, the teamwork allows orderly planning and optimization of the resources.

The organization as regards management, documentation and communication enables developments to be achieved in a timely manner.

Cordiality, respect and personalize attention are key factors to enjoy the process. Therefore, the active participation of clients is essential so that the completion of projects can meet their expectations.
