We are celebrating our tenth anniversary in 2016. Ten years have passed since Joaquín Pérez-Goicoechea and Nasser Abulhasan embarked on their own professional project with the launch of AGi architects. Since then, we have grown considerably, both in the human team of our two offices in Madrid and Kuwait, where we currently work more than 50 people, as well as in the diversity and scope of our projects.
Since we completed Star House, the project that gave rise to the birth of our design firm, we have been able to develop many other luxury single-family homes such as Wall House, Rock House and Secret House; medium-sized residential complexes such as Green Core and Black & White; collective housing such as Wafra Living and Tamdeen Square Residences; clinics and hospitals; new office buildings and renovation of existing ones such as Prointel Offices; religious buildings like “La Ascensión del Señor” Church; etc. We have participated in various competitions obtaining first, second and third prizes such as our proposals for GDIS in Kuwait, Qatar Courthouse, Mashhad City Complex in Iran, or “El Capricho” Palace in Madrid. And our talent has been internationally recognized with various awards such as WAF, MEAA, FAD or Cityscape, amongst others.
Many and different publications and media have been interested in our work and track record throughout these 10 years. Do you come with us on this tour through some of the most significant articles and features? This is our selection:
