SFA is an architectural design studio based in Dublin and Madrid.
The practice has been working internationally and collaborating on public projects, mainly cultural and sports & leisure since 2008 and provides full architectural, landscape design and masterplanning services.
The practice places emphasis on the connection between architecture and landscape and how the space in between then is not fixed but is adaptable, changing overtime due to demands of a dynamic society. Changes, collaborations and dependencies which fine tune the design.
This is sustainable architecture for us, one which adapts to its context and function both at the moment of conception and overtime, being used and enjoyed year after year, in different ways by different people.
An open source attitude is adopted and embraced. Conceptual processes are critically assessed based on their functionality, aesthetics and connection to the physical and social context. The limits of architecture, landscape and infrastructure are blurred and their definitions interchangeable.
The most important aspect of our work however is the ability of each project to embody spaces which surprise and delight. The emotive value of the idea for us is the success of the project. Being functional contextual and beautiful are prerequisites. We will only be satisfied providing imaginative design solutions, with a sense of place. Memorable not iconic with the capability to be engaged with, and make someone’s day.
