LCG arquitectura began in 2004 as a result of small private projects and at the same time to be able to compete in competitions of ideas as a process of parallel learning already started since the time of studies at the ETSAC.
We understand architecture as the search for spaces in scale with their environment, their needs and their resources. We study the projects from their link with the territory, in dialogue with the promoters and in balance with the available budgets. We aspire to build with rigour, criteria and skill.
The development of our daily work is a continuous learning process, always unfinished. Interest in the profession serves as motivation. The main intention will be to explore the capacity of the projects to enhance the value of the places of performance and vice versa.
We are attracted by the vision of the artist as a craftsman, as a person who exercises a craft.
Optimism will be a tool to be used, in order to find alternative ways of working.
Self-criticism allows us to have different perspectives on situations and pushes us to improve.
We are convinced that we understand the architecture we think of as spaces that contain activity. Ultimately, our interventions are the backdrop against which life takes place. That is why we are increasingly moving towards flexible responses.
