About us

Casellasarchitects is an architecture studio made up by a team which gathers many years of experience in construction projects and project management, rehabilitation projects, as well as interior designing. Sustainability, low environmental impact, and the usage of friendly material are what, undoubtedly, our projects are focused on.

Our professional practice is based on an extensive knowledge on passive architecture. This experience has allowed us to perform public facility projects and private buildings, both achieving results by meeting the needs of our clients, not only with private property developer’s but also with Public Administrations.

We work to create a shared value due to the fact that we seek our client’s benefits, but, on the other hand, we take into consideration sustainability along with social and environmental impact.

We incorporate research into our professional practice in order to deepen on the use of industrialized systems and friendly materials which enhance not only the process of construction but also the lifecycle of the building. The purpose of this research is to create a much more sustainable future based on Circular Economy.

We are wood-usage experts – wood as a 21th century material – and we are working on industrialized processes in order to achieve sustainable, eco-efficient and friendly projects.

Services

We develop projects for particulars, real state developers and public administration. We project homes and equipments based on low environment impact, sustainability, and health.

We project rehabilitations that improve the habitability of the existent building, and reduce its energetic demand.

We work side by side with our clients, offering our services all the way through the process.
