ARCHITECTURE FOCUSED ON PEOPLE AND THEIR WELL-BEING
“WE ARE COMMITTED AND ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT EACH OF OUR WORKS, NO MATTER THE SCALE, CREATING FRIENDLY, SUSTAINABLE AND HEALTHY SPACES IN WHICH WE WANT TO LIVE, WORK OR SIMPLY ENJOY”.
TANGRAM | Architecture + Design is a Zaragoza based studio formed by a multidisciplinary team with more than 10 years of experience. Our team is the result of the collaboration of great professionals who love this discipline and enjoy investigating each new challenge.
Specialising in residential projects, facilities and offices, we propose a contemporary architecture that reinterprets the most traditional concept while looking to the future.
Our extensive experience in the private residential sector helps us to approach each project as if it were unique. We are committed and enthusiastic about each and every one of our projects, regardless of the scale. We develop architecture that focuses on people and their well-being, creating friendly and healthy spaces in which to live, work or simply enjoy.
The result is an architecture of simple lines, creative and functional, where sustainability and commitment to the territory play a leading role. We are committed to an architecture that looks to the future through the implementation of the Passivhaus standard, the digitalisation of processes that make life easier for users, industrialisation and maintenance economy through circularity in designs and proposals, as well as the reduction of energy consumption through efficient designs that promote self-consumption.
Throughout our trajectory, our studio has received several awards and recognitions, and our work has been recognised by our clients.
