The Practice

Ivo Mareines
Rafael Patalano

Mareines+Patalano is an architecture and urbanism practice that searches for an organic new response to every design. Our designs are always approached as a new challenge, dodging pre estabilished formulas and repetition of our own past solutions. We are in sync with our time’s technologies and poetry.

We believe in sustainability ideas, but not only when applied through technologycal devices of energy consumption reduction, but mainly by locating correctly and shaping architecture. We always try to work with varied themes in a constant search for new questions and answers.

Each client is unique, as are unique the moment and the society in wich we live. Nothing less true than equal answers to different questions.
