INTRODUCTION
ABOUT US & OUR WAYS
Over the years we have studied closely the architectural and urban development of Barcelona and Norway, and this knowledge gives our team common grounds. Mestres Wåge Arquitectes was founded by Maria Mestres and Magnus Wåge in 2005 and is based in Barcelona. Our portfolio contains projects of varying size and program for both public and private clients. We work with architecture and urbanism as an intertwined discipline and offer services throughout all phases of the process from conceptual design to the construction phase.Our team is an informed group that works tightly together to achieve the best solutions for the projects we undertake.
The office has won and been acknowledged in several international architecture competitions and teaching in architectural schools is part of our activity. As part of our office strategy we collaborate with other professionalsin order to be able to address projects of high complexity. We have strategic partners in Spain and Norway. We apply a flexible process with our clients where dialogue is a key ingredient to come to solutions that are custom tailored for each project. The communication with our clients is accompanied by a production of architectural proposals that are critically tested to reach a satisfactory result.
We use handmade drawings and models and apply the latest digital tools for visual, economic and qualitative control in all parts of the process. We have 12 years experience with BIM modelling and are members of buidlingSMART Spanish Chapter. We organize our work on a plan of work where information, timing and deliveries are scheduled based om international standards. We have a well developed internal quality control system for securing data, internal professional coordination, control of governmental demands.
