ARQUITECTES MESTRESWÅGE

Mestres Wåge Arquitectes was founded by Maria Mestres and Magnus Wåge in 2005 and is a studio with an international vocation, based in Barcelona with strategic partners in Norway and Portugal.

They believe in creativity as key element in realizing complex projects and in an open and inclusive architecture that adapts to change. In short, the projects are developed considering the lifespan of the building.

The work method is based on collaboration and dialogue, between professionals and client. To make this easier the projects are developed in BIM, a work tool that they have 12 years of experience with, and that permits exchange of information, formal control of the architecture, economy and program.

Magnus Wåge is coordinator of the 3rd year in the Bergen School of architecture(Norway), Maria Mestres is member of the BIM board of the COAC (catalán architect unión). Both are members of Building SMART Spanish Chapter.

Boris Bezan, Mónica Juvera. BAX studio

BAX studio is an architecture firm directed by Boris Bezan and Mónica Juvera, renowned architects and winners of numerous national and international awards, with projects in Spain, Slovenia, Finland, Norway and Mexico. Based in Barcelona, the practice has a well designed network of collaborators that allows it to work all over the world. Both partners combine professional praxis with teaching at different universities, and were visiting professors at the School of Architecture of the University of Texas at Austin in 2018.

The practice specialises in creating unique, coherent architecture solutions that encompass social aspects, landscape, structure and sustainable design. Its way of working ensures proposals that are well thought through, and the best solutions and singular ideas are produced by a process of intensive team work. At the same time, its compact structure allows complete dedication of the partners throughout the project, from the general idea down to the smallest detail.
