BAAS is an architecture and design studio founded by Jordi Badia (Barcelona, 1961) in 1994. The practice strives to meet and solve, simply but also sophisticatedly, the complex requirements that each project lays down by constructing useful and appropriate buildings to a high technical level and without eschewing the expressiveness and emotion that the finest architecture is capable of transmitting.
Architecture that advocates the continuity of tradition and context whilst fully committed to respecting the environment.
