Llorenç Vallribera, Aleix Gil. Vallribera Arquitectes

Vallribera Arquitectes is an architecture firm sit in Sabadell. The founding partner is Llorenç Vallribera Farriol. It was estableshed in 2012 and in 2019 Aleix Gil Noray joined as a partner. They focus on the design of both reforms and new works of isolated houses and between party walls. Its objective is to provide each project with beauty and comfort. The success of his trade is the use of energy efficiency, custom design, optimization and cost control as fundamental tools.

They were selected in the Transition category of IX edition of the 2016 Rosa Barba International Paisatge Award, they won the X NAN Architecture and Construction Awards 2016 in the residential construction category and the BUILD Architecture Awards 2018 by Best Residential Architecture Company - Barcelona Most Efficient & Customized Interior Design Company.

Llorenç Vallribera is an architect and founding partner at Vallribera Arquitectes. Handball, music and drawing are the hobbies that take his mind off architecture and design.

Llorenç earned his degree in architecture from the Vallès School of Architecture (ETSAV, 1995-2003). In 2000, he was awarded an Erasmus scholarship from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) to study at the Helsinki University of Technology (HUT).

From 2000 to 2008 he was a collaborator with different architecture studios, including Espinet Ubach Arquitectes, ONL Arquitectura, and TAC Arquitectes. In 2006, he began developing his own designs, and in 2012 he founded Vallribera Arquitectes.

If he had to choose just one hobby, it would come down to music or handball. Years of training and playing the drums have taught him that learning takes hours of practice and dedication. But what would practice be without the excitement of a concert, and what would training be without the challenge of a game?

Llorenç is detail oriented and a perfectionist. When it comes to his work, he likes things to be resolved and well done. He knows that achieving success takes a mixture of audacity, humility, perseverance and talent. He believes that, in architecture, like when a concert goes well or when you win game, all the effort is worth it when it makes life better in the environments we build.

Aleix Gil is an architect and partner at Vallribera Arquitectes, he loves the mountains and climbing; he is an all-around mountaineer.

Aleix earned his degree in architecture from the Vallès School of Architecture (ETSAV, 2005-2012). In 2009 he was awarded an Erasmus scholarship from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) to study at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME).

In 2012, he began working at Vallribera Arquitectes, and through 2014 he also collaborated with MVA Arquitectura i Estructura. In 2015, he put all his efforts into becoming a Lead Designer at Vallribera Arquitectes. Four years later, in 2019, he became a partner at the firm.

Aleix’s first passion is clear: architecture. The second is also clear: the mountains. He likes climbing, downhill skiing, and mountaineering  – activities that have taken him many places, although if you ask him, no doubt he will tell you that his favorite place is Montserrat.

Aleix is a warm, friendly and easygoing person, who only speaks when it is truly necessary. His love for nature and his commitment in the face of a challenge show through in his work, his passions, and how he approaches life every day.
