Spanning the entire width of the flat, a large open-plan living looks out onto the terrace. Here a low, L-shaped sofa with bright blue cushions wraps the corner of the room. It’s built into a wall of shelving which displays artworks and decorative objects.

Studio Profile

We are Marina Huguet & Andy Penuela, M.Arch from ETSAV, Barcelona, Spain. Now based in Barcelona, we were once a nomad office.

Work-and-travel gave us the opportunity to collaborate (up-until-today) in countries like Sweden, France, Colombia, USA, Malaysia & Indonesia.

We believe that context shapes form. Our task is to understand the specific context of each project and to work the relationships between detail, material, space & scale.

We train our eyes through photography. We love books. We collect lamps. We are constantly questioning and learning by listening.
