Dieguez Fridman believes that architecture is the bridge that connects the realm of ideas and creativity and the world of construction. Each project offers an opportunity to articulate global concerns for the quality of cities and living spaces, with the local knowledge of craftsmen and construction industries.
The design process is triggered by a creative re-examination of program, architectural typologies, planning codes and the building’s insertion in the landscape or city fabric. The resulting concept is refined through a careful and innovative use of materials and a particular interest in construction details.
Building envelopes and materials, structural design and expression, user’s movement through architecture and the dynamic perception of space, are part of the firm’s continuous explorations. The idea of contrast defines the firm’s identity. Projects propose an opposition between the polished and reflecting quality of industrial materials –such as glass and steel- and the rough surfaces of exposed concrete and wood, in search of a new synthesis
Dieguez Fridman’s office is an open space where all collaborators take part in discussions of on-going projects and competitions. Fresh opinions and unconventional solutions are encouraged as a means of reaching the firm’s goal: to produce buildings that can influence people’s life quality and contribute in a positive way to its surroundings.
