pdf CV Víctor Olmos

Gloria Ochoa and Víctor Olmos are a couple of architects with a lot of experience. Together we have designed and built a wide range of projects, from single-family and collective housing, to educational buildings, offices and hospitals; we have carried out new buildings and refurbishments, and we have worked in Spain, our country of origin, as well as in Liechtenstein and Vorarlberg, Austria, where we decided to move to in 2013.
In our projects we always start with respect for the site and care for the context. We endeavour to design efficiently and functionally, looking for solutions that last over time and provide beauty and comfort. There are some very important aspects in our architecture, like clarity in the organisation of spaces, quality of the places in between, life indoors and outdoors, as well as materials, colours, transparency and light.
We are both members of Madrid´s Association of Architects, COAM, and Gloria Ochoa is also a member of the AK of Tyrol and Vorarlberg.
