We appreciate this opportunity to introduce you to our firm. It is our hope that after becoming familiar with us, we might have the pleasure of working with you on your project in the future. JAb Architects has grown out of the collaboration between two Barcelona architects, Joan Tenas and Alfredo Matas. After they had been working together for 9 years, Bart van der Meer joined the company as general manager in 2002. His experience in international trade was sought to bring more international clients to the company.
As a result, since 1994 the company has completed over 600 projects, each offering its own special challenges and rewards.
Unlike many architectural firms, JAb Architects does not choose to specialize in any one project type, but instead utilizes its diverse and experienced staff to pursue a wide range of projects.
Our current team consists of 3 architects and 2 support staff, divided over two offices in Catalonia, Spain. For specialist requirements we depend on an extensive network of collaborating firms.
To date, we have completed works in the fields of residential, commercial, healthcare, industrial, recreational and urban architecture, as well as many other unique fields.
One area of our expertise lies in working with foreign clients from all over the world who want to construct a residence on the famous and beautiful Costa Brava, the ´wild´ coast north of Barcelona. We believe that with clients from different countries and cultures it is necessary to invest heavily in the relation with the client to be able to come to a clear understanding of the clients ideas and wishes. Only then it is possible to achieve a practical, well-built, economical, and attractive design.
We are looking forward to an opportunity to explain our ideas and philosophy in a more personal setting. Any questions about our company, our people and our ideas are more than welcome.
