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.

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.
