NOA, Najmias Office for Architecture
Najmias Office for Architecture [NOA] is an internationally awarded architecture studio based in Buenos Aires. Founded in 2007 by architect Oliverio Najmias, NOA is specialized in a wide range of professional services related to the built environment; NOA produces designs and projects on a wide variety of scales: from completely new buildings and Masterplans to small interventions and reforms in existing constructions. The common denominator in this diverse portfolio is the experience that is based on finding the balance between an innovative and blunt identity with the level of customer expectations and the overall quality of the projects.
The office has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions while the work of the study has been published around the world. NOA has been sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Secretariat of Culture of the Cdad. from Buenos Aires.
NOA was doubly awarded at the National Design Biennial of the FADU-UBA.
The Masterplan for Colegiales Railway Station that was the product of the competition of the same name and in which we were awarded the First Prize, and which was also honored as a Distinguished Work at the International Architecture Biennale of Argentina; now has won the National Design Biennial in the Urban Project Category.
In this same category, the Project for the Masterplan for Miraflores won the Third Prize.
With these distinctions NOA is consolidated as one of the best architecture, design and urban planning studios in Argentina
Almost unknown to the general public, and often forgotten by the specialist, the figure of Auguste Perret came to my memory today.
