Juan Carlos Baumgartner Garcia (1972)

Philosophy

Not long ago we opened SPACE with the intention of working with corporations which think that space makes a difference. Our passion has always been design and architecture. We structure a new way of seeing architecture and we develop methodologies inline with this vision.
With an interest in being the best if not the biggest, we surround ourselves with an interdisciplinary team of highly talented professionals.

We take into account the importance of research and technology and we include both in our method of thinking and working, always seeking SUSTAINABLE solutions which not only RESPECT the environment but which help to improve our surroundings.

We are convinced that ideas move quicker when you think of people-technology-space at the same time. In this way we begin to put intelligent people with intelligent technologies into intelligent spaces.

We have created various lines of business, CORPORATE ARCHITECTURE both interior and exterior, COMMERCIAL ARCHITECTURE, points of sale, shopping malls and RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE, among others.

Whether it be a small space, a large building, a campus, offices, shops or a residential development, we know that to achieve a great solution you have to begin from inside, this is the basis of our philosophy; designing from inside out.

We have also generated a methodology which we call the Green Scale. In which all, absolutely all projects have the potential to be green to some degree.

The project's and/or the client's level of commitment is defined as part of the methodology. The Green Scale consists of three levels:

LIGHT GREEN: seeks energy savings and rational use of resources

MEDIUM GREEN: in addition to what is done in light green; the project is carried out with eco specifications and technology investments to increase energy savings are analysed.

DARK GREEN: this level of commitment implies carrying out projects with LEED certification and applies to clients and/or projects with a high level of ecological awareness and commitment.

For a few this is our history, for us it is the legacy of SPACE.
