Solano & Catalán is an architecture firm with more than 40 years of experience. We develop infrastructural projects, urban plans and buildings that cover the vast majority of architectural typologies, bypassing the traditional boundaries that exist between each of these fields and applying an interdisciplinary method of integration between them.
Our work system seeks to achieve the highest level of quality and excellence and is based on the use of flexible and dynamic structures adaptable to the needs of each commission. Our solutions are based on a rigorous analysis of the context and we understand our design processes as a mean to improve our environment, optimize building systems and make efficient use of resources. The team led by Francisco Javier Solano and Eladio Catalán is made up of architects and engineers from different specialties, who are spread out between their offices in Madrid and Guadalajara. Solano & Catalán develops projects in several Spanish cities as well as in Bucharest (Romania) and Panama City.
