Architecture visualizations are always key in the early stages of any project. We work in 3D from inception. This technique helps us to have a better spatial understanding and gives us the opportunity to test options on paper and prepare better for later project stages. It is in the early stages of a project (e.g. Concept Development) where the character of the project is defined.

Approach, Collaborations & Results


At Ar.Co. we approach every project in a collaborative way. We love working with people, listening to them, and translating their needs into practical, tangible solutions. We create, co-ordinate and manage architectural projects that respond to different lifestyles and priorities. We develop and deliver high quality architecture for every scale and budget.

                        


Ar.Co. / Architecture Company
Who we are


Arco [ˈaɾko] (Spanish), from latin ‘Arcus’ = Arch (English)

In architecture and civil engineering, a curved member that is used to span an opening and to support loads from above. Arches have several great advantages over horizontal beams. They can span much wider openings because they can be made from small, easily carried blocks of brick or stone, and can also carry a much greater load than a horizontal beam can support.

We believe in the power of collaboration, where small independent parts work together in synergy for a greater good. We work in a human scale, where great architecture is made for people and by people. We are passionate about sustainable and efficient architecture, where minimal impact with maximum performance can be achieved.  Very much like an arch, we perform to our maximum capacity, taking the load of each project, creating safe and structurally sound spaces of all shapes and sizes, bringing every part together harmoniously.
