We are on a mission to change the way we conceive architecture.

Our history

Residual studio was born out of the dream of an architect with a bold vision and tireless commitment. Unsatisfied with the contemporary practice of designing architecture, based on the uncontrolled use of resources, waste and the creation of spaces without any consideration for the environment, she decided to focus her work exclusively on a new concept.

This concept considers architecture not just as a combination of form and function, but as a combination of form, function and responsibility. Responsibility to contribute to the preservation of our planet, the fight against climate change affecting our society, and responsibility to strongly promote people's well-being through ecological design.

What we believe in

Residual studio was created to demonstrate that it is possible to make any architectural project sustainable, beneficial to health and accessible to any client.

For customers, this means: well-being, health, comfort, savings, innovation, environmental responsibility and direct contact with nature and its elements.

For the future, it means accelerating the transition to fully sustainable architecture, one pioneering project at a time.
