is a laboratory of creative processes founded by Isabel Collado and Ignacio Peydro that is committed to pushing the boundaries of the built environment with innovative architectural solutions. In each of their projects, the design strategies and solutions are a reflection of design research, using practice as an experimentation platform in which architecture navigates a wide scope of design interests that transcend basic pragmatic requirements to achieve extraordinary results. Each project is undertaken as an opportunity to explore creative design methodologies, strategies and solutions, always driving their attention towards the feasibility of building technology, structural systems and sustainable environmental strategies.
IMAGINATION IS THE GERM of innovation
DOSIS excellence in design practice has been recognized with multiple worldwide awards and citations such as DOMUS best of architecture 2016, an award in the Holcim Awards for Sustainable Construction, J5 Young Architect Prize or the BUILD Architecture Prize among others
CONTROL OVER ALL PROCESSES GUARANTEES FEASIBILITY
Our approach towards design is holistic and evolutionary. We believe in the advancement of architecture through imaginative design based in feasible decisions. Imagination and feasibility are the two poles that push knowledge towards new boundaries. The understanding of complex requirements, available technology and physical principles set the basis of a fruitful creative process that triggers creativity through experimentation. Once decisions are made, the optimization of production processes provides optimal material outputs that have one single aim: make life better in them.
We approach architecture from a wide range of disciplines and practices, from history and theory to digital manufacturing, from urban planning to building information modeling, to provide our clients with extraordinary pieces of design and architecture that always surpass their initial expectations, constantly taking care of all processes from inception to inhabitation to make projects evolve within the desired budget and schedule.
We love what we do so you love where you live.
is a multidisciplinary architecture & design firm with a team formed by extraordinary architects and designers with expertise on architecture, urban design, landscape, graphic, furniture & object design, 3D modeling, digital manufacturing and virtual reality. This holistic approach to design allows the team to tackle each project from a wide range of directions to acquire the best results.
Our projects have been exhibited in London, Geneva, San Francisco, Paris, Madrid and Valencia and have been awarded with multiple international prizes and awards.
