Established by Faidra Matziaraki & Víctor Gonzalez Martí in 2012, Cometa Architects is a Barcelona based practice of exciting, energetic & dedicated architects committed to the creativity of designing and the process of construction.
Cometa’s experience extends from interiors and product design to cooperation and sustainability and focuses on delivering exceptional design from innovative concept to project management and construction.
The work is based on the responsive relationships built with the clients, collaborators and staff, which evolves through a process of continuous production and feedback. Part of the office’s work is dedicated to research, bespoke design making and prototyping.
Cometa’s approach to architecture ties together the up-to-date craftsmanship, materials and new sustainable technologies with the physical economic and social qualities of the given site, always reflecting the client’s budgets, needs and desires.
