Strokes, intersecting lines that provide a starting point. Not so much a whim, but an idea. An obliging notion born of a passion, a talent. A vocation that is both inherited and learned. One that is embraced. The joy of being part of something. The feeling of commitment. And of reciprocation. Facing the challenge and relishing it. Living it. Taking one story and using it to create a thousand more. New ones. Heartfelt ones. Stories made of matter and light, of spaces and silences, of habitats and humanity. Harmony. Each element forming part of a whole. Building, molding a strong, sober, responsible aesthetic. Timeless. That final stroke that transforms into a project that will enhance the joy of the space concerned. Architecture.
Architecture is a complex, multidisciplinary, collective task; hence, it can only be undertaken as a team.
From our offices in Mexico City, Aguascalientes, and Cancún, Artigas Arquitectos has succeeded in building a successful team of professionals with a passion for architecture and a profound love for what they do and for Mexico.
“While we are sometimes unsure as to where we are headed, it is vital we know where we come from.”
Architects by heritage, by profession and by tradition, who imbue our lives with a zest for creating spaces that inspire happiness.
For over 75 years, Artigas Arquitectos has endeavored to strike the perfect balance between the functionality and beauty of spaces.
As in any profession, our experience has endowed us with better tools with which to undertake the mission entrusted to us, based on an ethical approach at all times and a deep commitment to working for the good of our country, Mexico.
One that is not an end in itself, but rather something done by and for people. A functional art form.
“Before the majesty of nature, architecture falls silent.” One that harnesses, adapts to, and respects its setting.
One that endures physically and aesthetically through time; transcending. Bearing witness to our history.
One that is unpretentious, honest, impressive, and simple.
One that suggests a novel and creative way of doing things and takes risks.
“While we may not know where we are headed, at least we know where we come from.” One that reflects the joy of being Mexican.
Being multidisciplinary, complex, and collective. It can only be achieved as a team.
The more we do, the more we learn. We learn from our successes and from our failures, as well as from the new technologies and opportunities we are presented with.
One in which each space should be a focal point for human coexistence.
One whose framework and features convey their own stories.
