We create spaces and objects which are intimately linked to people. For more than 25 years, we have brought respect and passion to creating architecture and design projects which are customised with a unique underlying concept that creates wellbeing in everyday life through beauty

“B+C connects with a person’s true essence by practising, in a unique and very personal way, architecture, jewellery, or any form of expression and creativity”

An architecture and design studio where we carry out a range of projects, from refurbishments, interior design, window dressing or event ambience, to the design of spaces and tailored items and objects.

And we do it from the structural to the smallest detail, providing order and balance. Sharing our expert vision, advice and dedication by listening to people. With a clear idea of each step, why and where. Because only then can we help them discover, and above all, transform the ephemeral into something eternal that makes them feel good.

And every decade, we change our dynamics to nourish ourselves and thus be able to continue creating different future projects that contain this vital connection: their relationship with people.

“What we do always finds a connecting link with people”

Beauty

Understood as the utmost integration of form and function. Design that provides order, balance and makes you feel good. A design that makes people’s everyday life beautiful, combining inspiration with functionality. Rather than seeing the space or the content, we make people see the concept in it... Internalising it, understanding it.

Well-being

To offer people tranquillity and the chance to enjoy the work because, in reality, it is a unique moment in their life. This is the aim of our work: to enjoy and make people enjoy, because the best success is when people tell us how happy they are.

Respect

— For the customer: keeping our word regarding deadlines, prices... Listening to what they need and working with discipline and responsibility. — For our profession: evolving, always looking ahead and opening ourselves up to new worlds to nourish ourselves and absorb knowledge outside our comfort zone. — For sustainability: optimising spaces and resources, achieving quality and long-lasting results.

Intimacy

From the structural to the smallest detail. What we do is intimately linked to the people we do it for. It is for them and is not transferable to anyone else nor anywhere else. Works and materials that in an empty state are in balance… and our deepest intervention completes it.

OUR PATHS

To listen to and treat others the way we’d like to be treated”
