Fran Silvestre Arquitectos is an Architecture and Design studio based in Valencia, Spain. Formed by a multidisciplinary group of professionals, it develops residential, cultural, corporative or public projects worldwide, with clients in Europe, USA or Russia.
Throughout its history, it has received international awards and recognitions, such as the MHK in Berlin in 2009, the Red Dot Design Award in 2013, the NYCxDESIGN Awards 2016 in New York, the German Design Award 2016 or the First Prize in the Category of Product Design at the XIII Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism 2016.
The studio has also participated in international congresses such as the series of conferences “Spanish Art&Culture” in the United States in 2012, the Cityliv 2013 in Maastricht or the Archi Summit in Porto in 2016. Its work has been published in magazines such as GA Houses, On-Site, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest or Arquitectura Viva, and in editorials like Phaidon, GG, Taschen or Rizzoli.
The approach to each project arises from a double compromise: the will to give a technical response to a specific context and the desire to find beauty through the built work, pursuing the satisfaction of those involved in its development. Specially of the users, but also of the collaborators, constructors and designers.
In the professional career of the firm we can find very diverse types of buildings. Some works undertaken with high budget, and some of them with a low budget, but in every case great attention has been paid to the economy, without any waste.
Another feature of the process is continuity, with the surrounding which we must respect, but also understood from a time-space point of view, valuing the architecture that is able to survive the passing of time without becoming obsolete.
There is an emphasis placed on the use of innovation. New materials, new technologies, which improve people’s lives.
Also, precision is one of the keys for this work method. It requires a focused and attentive activity throughout the whole process, from the initial idea to its completion.
As the project becomes part of the identity of those who inhabit it, dialogue is always present. It is an unequivocal expression of their personality or corporative culture.
And finally, the team. The excellence in design is based in the integration of a network of professionals that agree on their passion for their work. A team that creates an environment of shared creativity capable of generating a continuous motivation, taking care of what is still in progress and excited for what is yet to come.
