Esteban and Roberto Terradas. Two architects, two brothers, two personalities, but a single way of understanding architecture. Entirely devoted to their work, Esteban and Roberto fully enjoy each project. Together they delve into each new challenge they encounter in their professional path enthusiastically, following the path they have chosen and that joins them.

Both head the studio Terradas Arquitectos, working with a team of professionals that share their same passion for architecture. This team has executed extremely successful architectural projects with a work philosophy which applies research, creativity and conversation as paramount elements of the processes in project conception.

They have authored the creation or refurbishing of many important buildings such as the Barcelona Royal Shipyards, the CosmoCaixa Science Museum of Barcelona (finalist for the FAD Architecture Award 2005 in and Best European Museum Award), the CosmoCaixa Science Museum of Madrid (Alcobendas), the Barcelona Aquarium, the Escuela de Policía de Cataluña (Police School) and the Olympic Shooting complex, the Escuela de Bomberos (Fire-fighters School) at Mollet, the Students’ Hall of Residence at the Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya (UPC) and at the Escuela de Ingeniería y Arquitectura La Salle in Barcelona, among others.

Great works, all of them accomplished with the utmost professionalism and quality.
