Presently, Victor Legorreta leads the firms as Managing and Design Director with the support of four partners, Miguel Almaraz and Carlos Vargas, Project Directors, Adriana Ciklik, Operations and Project Director and Miguel Alatriste directing the Administrative and Finance Department.

We have a long history and experience and we will continue to focus our daily work in designing a human architecture highlighting Mexican roots while exploring new design paths, while talking advantages from new technologies and responding to the needs of today’s society.

Legorreta + Legorreta designs for people who use their buildings. Believes that a good building should not only meet the needs of its users, the city, the environment, programs and budgets, but also the spiritual and artistic people.

Thus, for an architecture that makes people happy and not just one that can be admired and enjoyed by architects. The architecture should serve society, always above personal interests and false targets.

As a Mexican firm, Legorreta + Legorreta has been influenced and exposed to the Mexican vernacular architecture. It has learned to solve problems with creative solutions and spontaneous but always attached to the job scheduler and budgets.

The world is currently dominated by technology and information, so Legorreta + Legorreta believes that architecture should take advantage of both to make constructions that allow us to be better human beings.

The architecture, engineering, and materials used are proud of the city, users and customers, but without being presumptuous, in other words, these elements should contain the best quality of thinking in the design and planning.
