Heres Arquitectura

HERES ARQUITECTURA

Heres Arquitectura is a studio established in 2001 by Cristina Cuberes and Héctor Restrepo.

Based on a vision of teamwork for the development of architectural projects, it goes far beyond spatial solutions and takes into account all details in order to include in the projects with a sense of character and cosiness. In its early years it was devoted to renovating the corporate of a multinational in Spain, later, it expanded into development of single-family housing projects and rehabilitation of offices, shops and restaurants. Heres Arquitectura currently develops offices, hotels, single family houses and multi-family housing projects and urbanizations, from start to finish, with the aim of taking care of all construction details in large scale architectural projects in order to obtain the highest quality results.

Our approach has always been based on clean lines and volumes where the architecture reflects the development plans and combination of the materials and meticulous details enhance the project. Our projects are always all-encompassing and go from the conception of ideas passing through the different phases and include even the final distribution of furniture.

Our philosophy leads us to involve our customers with the project development process and the building work.
