Hermanitos Verdes is formed by a group of european architects, all of them born during the age of beat, pop art, libertarian utopies and free-love.

Mainly dedicated to the design of schools and community buildings, they're interested as well in social housing, and are experienced in landscape and city planning.

The office, with an open and flexible structure, takes advantage of the collaboration of qualified specialists, and can answer to any need in the fields of architecture, design and planning.

Hermanitos Verdes have been awarded in many architectural competitions, both nationals and internationals and are committed to the diffusion of a contemporary architectural culture.
