Established in 2017 by Paloma Ybarra, André Guiraud and Nacho Company, SAINT ANDRÉ is an internationally positioned yet locally engaged firm based in France and Spain. Its work, ranging from small scale residential and retail spaces to public buildings.

 

We are dedicated to the making of architecture: meaningful spaces within simple and thoughtful buildings. In dialogue with existing conditions, whether natural or built, we see constraints as a starting point for our design, rather than impediments to our creativity. We like spaces that are intimate yet open, engage with shades of natural light, change throughout the day and are activated by the emotive and sensorial qualities of materials.
