Their work includes a wide range of projects, moving from urban scale to interiorism. It has been fully published and awarded. Some examples are: GardenHouse 0.96; Hotel Ciutat d’Igualada, and Façade-Steps Landscape of Manresa Town Hall, shown atOn Site:New Spanish Architecture, MoMA Museum of New York in 2006, and won in 2010 the prestigious international Contracworld Award. They have also received the First “Annual Commercial Space Award” in China 2011. And they have received the prestigious Spanish Award FAD twice.
