About us

BAYONA I VALERO

Bayona Valero Arquitectes Associats starts its business practice in 2000 with the architects Marta Bayona Mas and Albert Valero Cabré.

Since then we have executed projects of many different natures and at different architecture and urbanism scales, collaborating with other studios from Spain and abroad. That has allowed us to weave a collaboration network of specialists of proven experience and professional authority.

Our global and transversal vision of our profession takes us to approach each project and task from a particular and detailed perspective, but at the same time with a global vision that incorporates the process and reflection with different scales and disciplines.

Our projects have often been acknowledged with awards and architecture competitions at local and international level. We have worked in the public field through competitions and commissions, but also in the private sphere of dwellings, in large scale urbanism, urban projects, building and facility architecture, all the way to the smallest and domestic scale of restoration and refurbishment of spaces.

Our commitment with our profession is approaching each project from thought and reflection in order to transform and provide the best answer to each situation.

That’s what we like, what energizes us and what fills us with meaning to continue in this profession.
