RUE is an architecture studio based in Pamplona, ​​founded ten years ago and led by Raul Montero Martínez and Emilio Pardo Rivacoba, architects from ETSASS of the EHU-UPV. They work with all types of clients (private, public), at all scales (from urban planning to furniture), and in very different environments (city, periphery, isolated centers), focusing our activity mainly on the field of housing and space. public.

They carry out a detailed and respectful work, paying special attention to taking care of the environment and the history of the place, so that these are legible after the intervention. The result is meticulous and sensitive interventions that also reflect their commitment to the environment and their desire to innovate. At the same time, they are consistent with the current situation, so they are flexible and know how to adapt their project strategy to the economic reality of the users, as well as to the current regulatory framework.
