arco arquitectura contemporánea

ARCO Arquitectura Contemporánea (Contemporary Architecture) is an innovative company specialized in property development and interior architecture. The company experience in México and abroad is evident in the superior quality, transparency, personal and continuous service. The company considers that true architecture is developed based in the customer satisfaction, by the use of a language that shapes and expresses the intention in a aesthetic and functional result. .

ARCO projects are the result of combining forms, colors and textures that go beyond fulfilling a function. The spaces have a unique language in which materials are more than just structure, as they become expressive elements. When we add the spatial experience, aesthetic value and satisfaction of the client´s needs, we transform the construction into an architectonic result.

ARCO Arquitectura Contemporánea was founded by architects Bernardo Lew and José Lew which at the same time are in charge of the direction of the company. The main activities of the firm are: planning, architectonic project execution, interior design, consulting and coordination of structural projects, MEP systems, site direction, technical and economical management, coordination and construction supervision. .

ARCO partners are both architects graduated from Universidad Anáhuac and have more than 15 years of professional experience en México and the US. Their projects have been published in national and international magazines and have received important awards. They are constantly invited to give lectures in congresses and architecture schools.
