Architecture shapes our life and should be created for all of our senses.

Coldefy is an international studio that creates balanced environmental, urban and social compositions that push the boundaries of cities and life, weaving landscape and personal narratives in projects.

We started as a family business, but now with over 15 years of experience, we work on more than 50 projects per year in 11 countries on four continents.

We value the cultural diversity of our collaborators.

They contribute greatly to the profile of our company by exchanging ideas from different approaches.

From extra-large to extra small, our work is confronted with ultra-urban environments and supports creating human-sized cities.

We ask ourselves simple questions to return to the fundamentals of architecture and design, seeking a new pragmatism about human behaviour and cities.

We are aware that the buildings we inhabit influence our behaviour and shape our cities.

We believe that architecture should serve the senses and allow for memorable experiences.

What does sensitive architecture stand for?

Practising sensitive architecture that is connected to nature and open to the landscape.

We envision buildings as a desire for tranquillity and as opportunities to escape a frenzied pace of living.

clarity

Within urban or natural surroundings, Coldefy believes that simple, clear design has the strongest impact for inhabitants, users, and visitors. The conceptual legibility of each project, and its ability to express its intentions, generates an understanding with the community that allows it to insert itself into their spatial and visual consciousness.

urbanity

Through its projects, Coldefy seeks to respect the identity of territories while generating new landmarks. By respecting the continuity of urban and natural experiences, their designs open a dialogue between the project and its environment, and become a catalyst for social interaction and the generation of public space.

phenomenology

Each space must consider the senses of those who encounter it, above and beyond the technical constraints and conceptual objectives. Coldefy maintains that sensory stimuli such as light, material, and space anchor our encounters via our human senses, framing our memories of places and their impact on our lives.
