Madrid, Spain

Joaquin Torres and Rafael Llamazares constitute the architecture team known as A-cero. Initially as architects, they admire the classics, of course Le Corbusier and Mies, but feel a special attraction to the minimalist architecture of John Pawson and follow Spanish masters as Ignacio Ramos and Jose Antonio Vicens. The house of Las Matas of the latter, will influence them decisively. 

The key of A-cero's work is to keep the idea throughout the whole process, from start to the crucial phase of the project management. In this sense, the "why" is as important as the "how." The project must be developed from the more general concept until completing the definition of the smallest detail that it materializes. 

A-cero is currently experiencing a significant internationalization process, with projects in Europe, UAE, Lebanon, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S.
