Presentation

Botteri-Connell Studio in an architectural firm founded in La Plata, Argentina in 2010 by Sofia Botteri Cappa (1983) and Patricio Connell (1981), both graduates in Architecture from Universidad Nacional de La Plata (University of La Plata). Since then, they have both ventured into teaching and have participated in contests with a team of graduates, professors and asosciated partners. 

Partners in architecture and life, they create a two-head based study with a deep interest in the collaborative process with clients and other asosciated architects, viewing teamwork as a fundamental pilar of their activity for promoting interaction between different wills and skills. 

On having a great dedication to designing residential houses, they devote long periods of time to study different variables for each project interrelating architecture with poetry, music, movies and literature in general. 

Each design is brought to life as a result of the deep interaction with their clients and of interpreting their needs and listening to their wishes. Therefore one finds pieces of work diametrically opposed as regards expression and structure but completely equal in relation to the fluid and frank relation with whom will inhabit the space. According to this, projects are developed with a clear sense of place and purpuse. Finally, construction details are always rigorousy controlled in order to be in concordance with the project's concept. 

Their work has been distinguished and published in several international media (Argentina, Spain, USA Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador and Chile). 

They have been awarded in local, national and international contests. In 2014 their work was exhibited in the Quito Architecture Biennale. In 2016 their studio was among the ones that represented Argentina in the Venice Architecture Biennale; and they have just been awarded two gold medals in the category residential in American Architecture Prize.
