NOEMA studio is a multidisciplinary network composed of architects, engineers, artists, graphic and industrial designers, craftsmen, builders… We provide an integrated design process that is intrinsically connected to the relationship with the client and the other professional agents who collaborate in the project. We offer our participation in a variety of services including architecture, urban design, landscape, interior and industrial design, all this from the conception of the idea to the materialization of it.
The term of NOEMA is taken from the Greek word of "Nous". This term is applied for referring to mind and intellect. Noema is the meaning of an act. It perfectly describes our endeavor to continuously challenge our understanding of design as the process of thinking which derives in an engagement in harmony with techniques and senses. As a result, design’s objective is to serve humanity as an active tool to create and transform landscapes, spaces and materials into atmospheres where life thrives.
Consequently, our interpersonal need to contribute to the future in a sustainable way pushes us to find how, through design, we build new landscapes, spaces and objects always considering its context. All our projects share a common aim: to achieve, from a responsible management, a high natural and social wellness.
