For us, making architecture means blending functionality, spatiality and volume with users’ technology, environment and well-being. A holistic vision that involves not only aesthetics, but also emotional, cognitive and multidisciplinary commitment.
ÁBATON was established in 1998 by architects Camino Alonso andIgnacio Lechón and industrial engineer Carlos Alonso.
The original purpose of the company was to develop carefully planned architectural and housing projects with a strong commitment to design and quality of the final product.
Since ÁBATON was established, Camino Alonso has been the Creative Director, implementing a unique style based on the design of efficient, simple and, above all, human spaces linked to the environment and with a special concern for nature.
ÁBATON is fully aware of the footprint that building generates in the environment and their goal is to minimise that footprint as far as possible: their construction projects are designed to include low environmental impact materials that are ecological, easily recyclable and affordable.
To date, ÁBATON has completed about 200 projects (housing, hotels, offices, restaurants) and has renovated more than 80 homes in Spain and abroad. Their work has been published in architecture journals in more than 80 countries.
