Rogelio Vallejo Bores HW-Studio

HW-Studio is an architecture practice formed by Rogelio Vallejo Bores, Oscar Didier Asencio Castrocreado, Vera Sánchez Macouzet, Tirso Figueroa, Sergio A. Garcia Padilla and Jesús Alejandro López Hernández, founded in 2010 in Morelia city, Mexico, within the booming of violence of the country. 

The Studio was created with the purpose to stimulate and get implicated in the architectural process with artistic principles and eastern (budist) philosophy with western concepts, in order to create spaces that reminds and promotes that threatened peace.

Meditation is part of their creative process, becoming the natural and obvious answer for the creation of spaces that can transmit a serenity sensation, tranquility and silence, in a world mostly noisy and violent.

They constantly seek to promote an appreciation of what is really important in life, eliminating from architecture, everything that is not essential, so that through conscious contemplation, states of inner peace are reached.

The name: HW-Studio, comes from the union of the H letter, which in spanish is considered the silent letter and it means the representation of silence. The W letter comes from the Japanese concept wabisabi, which has no Spanish translation or direct equivalence with western concepts, but it could be understood as beauty of the impermanent and the imperfect.
