Frade Arquitectos was established in 2005 by Juan Pablo
Rodríguez Frade. Our purpose is to create a fluent dialogue
between the architecture and its context, offering a
contemporary response to complex programs, stimulating
sensibility with the selective combination of material,
texture, light, and scent that envelops the space.

An essential part of our design process is the active
involvement of our clients, lending uniqueness and
authenticity to each project.

We understand architecture as a result of multiple variables
pursuing the combination of functional demands and
timeless artistic values based on energy efficiency and
responsible use of natural resources.

Juan Pablo has participated in numerous lectures, masters
and international exhibitions and his projects have been
published in industry magazines and publications.
