Lucía Bentué, Elisa Pozo. Mita Atelier

Mita Atelier is an architecture studio estableshed by Lucía Bentué and Elisa Pozo, in 2021, convinced of the ability of architecture to influence well-being: the mental and physical health of people. Their goal with each project is to find the best socio-environmental impact, whether for the conversion of the Clesa factory in Madrid, a house in Zaragoza or a proposal to implement the Person-Centered Care Model for current Imserso centers (Institute for the Elderly and Social Services).

Lucía Bentué (1985) is an architect from ETSAB in 2011 and MPAA by ETSAM UPM in 2014. She has worked at Herzog & de Meuron, Nieto Sobejano (Arquia Grant 2010) and Carlos Ferrater.  

Elisa Pozo (1990) is an urban planner from ETSAM in 2017 with a specialization in the environment, a master's degree in Villes Durables (Institut Français d'Urbanisme, 2014) and Environment and Bioclimatics (MAYAB UPM, 2019). She is currently a Ph.D. student at UPM researching healthy cities.

In «Fábrica Circular» Mita Atelier has been in charge of the coordination of the project, the configuration of the ecosystem of entities and the proposal of the financial model together with AFI Consultores.
