The handling of the different scales of Architecture, Planning and Design has become one of the main characteristics of ESTUDIO SEGUÍ in terms of the diversification of its production processes. This joint work on these scales has allowed us to develop a method that attempts to integrate the professional dialogue between the scales of Architecture and Planning as two inseparable sides of the same coin, and the scale of the Design of interior spaces through Emealcubo.
At ESTUDIO SEGUÍ we jointly understand the project and management as a conjunction of aesthetic and practical values, where innovation in construction processes and the feasibility of making them a reality are the main objectives of the work.
In this integrated process of project and work management, drawing becomes a fundamental tool not only for the analysis of the problems but also for the concretion of the solutions, integrating and developing them through integrated BIM (Building Information Modeling) systems in order to guarantee the objective of making them a reality in the established conditions.
