Talking about the main features that we can highlight from A-cero Architects Studio, led by Joaquin Torres and Rafael Llamazares, these are their minimalism and functionality as main footprint on every project. This firm develops a modern architecture based on art´s world, specially in the field of sculpture, paying close attention to the volumes and their decisive impact on the final outcome of the work.
One of the very first projects of this architecture studio was the design of “La Finca” in Somosaguas, Madrid, a large state and ideal place to build over 180 outstanding and luxury private villas.

Interview with Joaquin Torres and Rafael Llamazares, their view of architecture, materials, famous customers, influences, architect´s responsibility and international expansion
Their firm has crossed borders and thanks to this international strategy they finally got such big commissions like the development of a residential state of 500.000 square meters in Dubai, growing on the number of international customers that place their trust in this architecture studio.
Both architects understand architecture as a global project in which the design is the starting point but acquires its maximum expression when it culminates with the interior design and landscaping. Besides, we must stand out their serious entry in the interior decoration and furniture design, to reach a coherent concept between outside and interiors, structure, landscape and interior lines, textures and colours.
