who I am

Fully qualified spanish architect by the Universitiy of Granada [Spain]. Since I moved to London in December 2012 I have been working very hard on my English to gain a solid confidence to succeed professionaly in the UK. During this time, I have been envolved in a wide variety of fields simultaneously,such as Spanish tutor (GCSE) and nanny,among others. At the same time I was working as a freelance architect for several projects in Spain and part timer in an architectural practise as a Architectural assistant part II which meant my first professional experience in London.After that utterly enriching personal and professional experience, I have been able to work efficiently as an architect in the Uk.

What I can bring to the table

I consider myself a very ambitious person, always eager to learn and share my knowledge with others. I would certainly bring energy and passion to all scale of design, keeping an special attention to detail with strong technical and design skills. My tenacity and determination along with special capacity for teamwork and good leadership skills proves that I can be a good and valuable future asset to your office.

My career aim

Having had experience in Small London based Architecture practises ,and having a good understanding of the UK planning system and building regulations I am now aiming to take a further step and work within a close and friendly team in a practise which draw me into new experiences and challenges as well as contribute as much as possible to deliver high quality and sustainable architecture.

Innsite and Grantley house Architect for PR ARCHITECTURE Location: Cranford.London Stages: A-E. Status: Building control approved. Date: 2015-2016 Type: Private property, Housing Surface: 800m2 in 4 storeys.

This 2000 m2 flat site lies immediately east of Heathrow airport. The brief sought a refurbished sustainable residential development which integrates with the existing urban fabric and acting as a catalyst for the regeneration of this part of the city. The scheme provides 28 residential units in two different buildings, consisting on a total of four floors,which meant the construction of two new floors on top of the existing two storey building. The two bedroom apartments provide a range of private gardens, to luxury balconies and roof terraces.

Rogers Ruff Out House

Lead project designer for PR ARCHITECTURE

Location: Northwood, Greater London Stages: A-D. Status: Submitted to Planning Date: 2016 Type: Private property, Housing Surface:480m2

The new internal configuration of the house is based on a full length glass rear extension to the dining area and new rooflight above, which aims to open the space to the garden and allow natural light to come in the house to create a better atmosphere. The Out House proposed integrates a very spacious outdoor sheltered barbecue area along with a modern living indoor space to enjoy in Summer time. Storage room is provided for gardening stuff. All this space is set 1.1m below Ground Level, in order to be able to creat a decent inside space and comply with planning regulations (2.5 m high max. for Flat Roof Out Buildings).

The new internal configuration and extension of the house is based on the visual connection with the garden, and therefore the maximitazion of natural light within the house. In order to achieve that visual connection within the housing, the design of a Japanese garden is proposed which allows the visual and lighting permeability, both along and across the dwelling.

This high end dwelling is located in a exclusive and luxury residential complex in North London, built on a 1600m2 in-filled rectangle shaped plot. The new internal configuration and extension of the house is based on the Vastu Shastra design principles, which theme is basically based around core elements of central space, peripheral zones, direction with respect to sunlight, and relative functions of the spaces. The open plan design along with a very generous size for all the rooms was an important client’s requirement, as they would be holding several religious and entertaining events in the house.

restoration and heritage

Located in the northernmost part of the peninsula, the center of boating activities mediates between land and sea with a set of gardens and buildings , squares , patios and walks organized in a spatial sequence studied and tested . The intervention is proposed on an existing plant, a set of buildings with pitched roofs both belonging to the remains of a ancient tuna fishery factory and some other fishermen homes, both now abandoned. Regardless of their coverage in disrepair, the remains of the thick outer walls and brick gables of the dilapidated existing buildings are taken as a starting point for the intervention project , becoming the protagonists of the design, RE- using them as patios, squares, shade elements or hallways, forming the outer shell of the building.

Restoration of Cuarto Real de Santo Domingo [Granada] conversion to Museum of Architecture

The project is based on dialogue between gardens. A journey through the different periods that marked the place. The thirteenth century, nineteenth and twenty-first century are about the same plan, reflected on a arabic, classic and modern garden, respectively. Water, light and textures are the elements in each level, similar but read differently according to the different periods that mark the project.

S.XIII Qubba and fountain

It is proposed a symbiosis where the existing building and the proposed program are visible and thus enhance each other by contrasting the new object that molds within an oldest known space.

Cuore di Rovigo

Masterplan in Rovigo.Italy The project area is very near the historic center, the train and bus station, the exhibition center and the University. An area with a lot of movement. So, there is the idea of connecting these points in a fluid and functional way. It aims for the curve to the straight line to create a strong contrast between the existing buildings present in the project area and new construction. The curve represents the flow and movement, very present both at street level and at the level of building, connecting the two volumes of new work together, both at first floor and deck, creating an attractive continuity throughout the area intervention and generating a high permeability in the city. The area is only for pedestrians and there is an underground car park.

The new two buildings are connected at the highest point, which is the most appealing part of the project. You will find a fitness room and a dining-room on top of students's main building and a rehabilitation room and a multipurpose room on top of elderly couples's building. Moreover, a reading room will be found on top of the library centerpiece in charge of uniting these two built volumes . It also has a sport area, a cafe-bar with terrace and a community office.
