Najmias Office for Architecture [NOA] offers a wide range of professional services related to the built environment; ranging from new buildings and masterplans to small interventions in existing buildings. The common denominator in this diverse portfolio is our experience that is based on finding the balance between an innovative and strong identity with the level of customer expectations and the overall quality of projects.

Our experience with both public and private clients, has given the team the flexibility to meet customer requirements and needs while maintaining tight cost control. In NOA we formulate solutions that create a unique architectural identity, optimizing costs and maximizing the value of the project while considering the social, emotional and intellectual implications both to the environment and users we serve. Building without technical conflicts, new alternatives, and vigorous ideas is our goal.

A rigorous study of the program, and where appropriate a reinterpretation of it, allows us to propose solutions that are not only adequate as architecture but also as a business. In NOA we are strongly committed to achieving the aspirations of our customers. To accomplish this, our services are executed according to the highest standards based not only on local recommendations such as the CPAU but also RIBA [UK] and CAU [Brazil].

Najmias Office for Architecture is a small internationally award-winning architectural practice based in Buenos Aires.

The office has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions while the work of the studio has been published around the world. NOA has been sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture from the City of Buenos Aires.


NOA has a fascination with sustainable processes and generating innovative solutions from architecture and the impact this has on the daily lives of its users. Our research-based approach promotes space innovation in the fields of architecture, interior design, and furniture as well as the landscape, with a strong focus on the integration and the impact of the buildings on the environment and the environment.

Each design comes from a deep study of the given conditions and challenges the current thinking, looking for solutions that are both appropriate and stimulating.


Our way of approaching the design is the result of an iterative process of successive approximations, which allows a result of the highest quality to meet the aspirations of the client. As needed, we use interviews, diagrams, visualizations and physical models that enable us to wonder about the design, the site, the program, and the customer’s wishes.


NOA is flexible, creates working groups according to the needs of each project, forming the appropriate team both internally and externally. This collaborative model implemented since the beginning of NOA guarantees excellent results in the project.


A design must be the most effective expression of the conditions under which it is created, regardless of the budget that is handled is high, medium or low created; in all cases, we focus on creating value respect budgets. Value embraces the concept of added value: the added value that good design brings to a product, a building or an urban environment as a long-term investment.
