About me
Andrés is an architect (ETSA Barcelona) and designer from Barcelona. After living and working in Buenos Aires and Venice he settled in London, where he’s been living for 7 years. He works on a freelance basis and is a teacher at the Retail Design Master at ELISAVA school in Barcelona. A maker at heart, he is a self taught textile designer. Andrés worked as architect for the Swedish brand COS for 5 years, completing more than 25 international projects, including flagship stores in New York, Tokyo, Zurich and London. As an architect for a fashion brand, he navigated many scales of design: from furniture to textile, product or pop up design. During his time at COS, he was the sustainability manager for interior design, developing sustainable design projects internally and with the Royal College of Arts, applying his knowledge on circular design. For his role, he was trained on circular economy by the Ellen Macarthur foundation. Following his work for COS, Andrés established himself as a freelance architect and designer, working with private clients as well as supporting other studios, like Faye Toogood for the design of the new store concept for Mulberry, the spatial design studio Isabel+Hellen or food artist Inês Neto dos Santos. His latest project is the design of the co-working space ARC club in Homerton in collaboration with architect Caro Lundin. His most long lasting collaboration has been with Cecilia González from FARO studio, finding a great partner on her to share their visions on space and light. Andrés’ work is inspired by precise gestures, repetitions and variations of the same element to achieve a cohesive yet surprising interior space experience. His multidisciplinary practice is always rooted in a conscious approach to materials, durability and aesthetic, with the prevailing idea that there are no good projects without a good collaboration.

Working for clients like Scott's Mayfair, Christopher Kane, Nicholas Kirkwood, Prada or Hermes, I collaborated with her in several aspects of the design and execution of lighting installations for events, showrooms or special projects. This is a side project that I coordinate with my job as an architect and interior designer.
