Miyarq propose simple solutions derived from sophisticated analysis 

Miyarq produces highly original work. Their designs are not only innovative and visually exciting, but also functional objects inspired by nature and by the appropriation of ideas and technologies.

Miyarq's architecture is born from the needs of people, both material and spiritual, and from the preoccupation to respond adequately to landscape, climate, culture and society.

They aim to propose simple solutions derived from sophisticated analysis. Form evolves in response to critical drivers and morphs as it is progressively refined as projects advance. They respect the knowledge derived from traditional forms of architecture. The balance of thermal mass, orientation, the aspect of internal spaces, the disposition of openings in response to the local conditions are all considered and enhanced with bioclimatic strategies (passive cooling, local generation, natural ventilation, etc..,) and further refined with the considered incorporation of building systems technology to the solar architecture concept.

The team base their sustainable approach on a "Doing more with less" philosophy, and they endeavour to find multiple functions for all the building´s elements and systems. The firm keep efficiency and flexibility criteria present at all times. The order and the integration of the building´s components allow for the reduction of capital and operational costs, provide the strength to respond to the evolution of demand in the short and long term and improve the economic viability of its operation, as well as the beneficial impact on the local community and its wealth.

They believe that the quality of our environment has a direct influence on the quality of our lives and with their work they aspire to improve the public realm and to lift the spirit.
