We are the opposite of a stage magician.

He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.

(Tennesse Williams “The Glass Menagerie” 1944)

WHAT MAKEs US DIFFERENT

CrystalZoo was launched conceiving its studio as a discussion forum, committed to a continuous process of learning and researching new construction and functional solutions. We are specialised in architecture, design and landscaping, with over 20 years of experience in public buildings and the private sector. Our works have been published in a variety of specialised international magazines, and have received major local, national and international prizes for constructed works including FOPA, FAD and ARCHITIZER awards. We have also been an EU Mies Award finalist.

The CrystalZoo team is heterogeneous and multidisciplinary, which helps us to apply a transversal approach to our projects. Each member comes from distinct cultural and professional fields which, combined, contribute to enriching the proposals and the links with the city and society.

Adapting the work team to each realisation, seeking an active social interaction model.

Today, we serve private companies, local corporations and the administration of the Valencian Community, working as a consultancy for works and proposals, keeping within deadlines and budget requirements.

Our fields of activity include: branded Business Buildings, Hotels, Interior Design / Contract, Institutional Architecture, Landscaping / Planning, Rehabilitation / Architectural Recycling, Housing and Consultancy for new ways of living such as Senior and Intergenerational Cohousing.

This year our municipal coworking project Lab_Nucía was awarded two Architizer awards in the “Best Institutional – Government & Civic Building” category: the Architizer Jury Award and the Popular Choice Award.

Once again, we focused on fulfilling environmental requirements while improving collaboration dynamics, based on spaces that foster social communication as well as reconversions to alternating work activity. This led us to develop the Lab_Nucía project. Its architecture aims at energising its users and emphasizing the building’s rootedness. An inspiring, dynamic and open coworking space that encourages social and collaborative interactions.

Our clients
The following firms and institutions have trusted us to help them to attain their goals and realize their architecture projects. Thank you for your trust.

Architecture is inseparable from the social and economic values of the individuals who practise it and the society which sustains it. We as individuals are responsible for contributing to the welfare of mankind, the society in which we practise and the team with whom we work.
