ambrosi etchegaray is a mexico city-based architecture office led by jorge ambrosi and gabriela etchegaray. the duo, who are partners in life as well as architecture, founded their firm in 2011 and have since completed a growing number of projects in their home country. the firm was asked to curate the mexican pavilion at the 2018 venice architecture biennale and has since completed projects at casa wabi — the arts center set up in 2014 by mexican artist bosco sodi. both ambrosi and etchegaray are currently adjunct professors at columbia university’s graduate school of architecture, planning and preservation, a role that means they also have a base in new york.

located at the heart of mexico city, within a historic residential building, ambrosi etchegaray’s studio is where a team of around 15 works on a diverse array of projects. ‘with the team we try to direct them to help us to produce plans, renderings, images, models,’ jorge ambrosi tells designboom. ‘we try to gather with the chief of each project and try to communicate what we were thinking about, what’s the idea, and where the brief needs to go.’

within the studio, a dedicated space has been assigned to model making, while the office itself is filled with scale replicas of the firm’s projects — past, present, and future. this hands-on approach is evident in the studio’s work, which champions a type of architecture that exists in harmony with nature. ambrosi etchegaray’s work expresses bold yet simple forms and honest materials, all complemented by an abundance of natural light and an integration of greenery — another element found inside the studio. see more photos from the visit below, and read our interview with co-founder jorge ambrosi here.
