Architecture is an engagement in harmony with the measurable techniques and intangible senses. It has its own shape, its own atmosphere and therefore, it has its own evolving life. Architecture must thrive by serving humanity. This is precisely what we understand about our profession. We see architecture as a tool to develop society from its current context; to contribute to the world and betterment of humanity.
NOEMA studio was founded in 2017. The studio is inspired to understand how, through design, we build the new societies, cities, landscapes, environments, dwellings, and spaces in this emerging era in a respectful way - from the largest scale of a city to a simple room. But we are also very much focused on how we reuse and redesign; analysing history and looking for design´s paradigm.
Consequently, as young architects, we have this intrapersonal need to contribute to the future and improvement of society. We offer a variety of services including architecture, urban design, landscape, interior, and industrial design.
