mateoarquitectura was founded in November 1981 by Josep Lluís Mateo. With its team of experienced architecture professionals, the practice has developed a wide range of competences (office buildings, urbanism, public spaces, housing…) and the ability to adapt to the international arena.

For each of its projects, mateoarquitectura tries to connect the constructive activity (with a particular interest for all pragmatic aspects of the profession) with the research and development both intellectual and programmatic. It works on the line that separates the universe of ideas from the physical world of reality.

mateoarquitectura is globally active and tries to connect intelligence and artistic ambition with pragmatism and objectivity. It has been chosen as one of 100 world’s best architecture firms of 2019 by DOMUS Magazine. His practice has won many prices and awards; his body of work has been worldwide published and exhibited.
