WHO WE ARE

Alma Project is a Barcelona-based studio born in 2018 from a partnership between two architects, magnetized by a shared passion for interior architecture and conceptual design.

We are an architecture and interior design studio working in the fields of commercial interiors such as hospitality, retail, and corporate design as well as residential projects.

Functionality, quality, and aesthetics. These are the main principles of Alma Project designs. The studio’s philosophy is to create beautiful, long-lasting, and meaningful designs with special attention to detail and innovative solutions, making each project unique.

“We believe that a well designed project is the best form of sustainability and that outstanding results are created together with clients who share our passion for quality and beauty”.

Mariana Larentis graduated in Architecture and Urban Planning in Porto Alegre – Brazil, and move to Barcelona to study a Master in Sustainable Architecture. Since then she has been working internationally with emphasis on the design of private homes, restaurants, bars, and hotels.

She brings the tropical soul and passion for nature through the use of colors and natural materials that remind us of sunny beaches and lush nature. Mariana prints that relaxed character of the Brazilian lifestyle, in addition to the taste for the simplicity and beauty of the Scandinavian design acquired during her stay living in Stockholm.

Her tropical warmth combined with her Nordic influence always creates something functionally intelligent and aesthetically pleasing.

Alberto Medina studied architecture in Barcelona and acquired a passion for interior design working with great designers in Europe. He has great experience in the world of design of commercial and residential spaces.

He brings the Mediterranean soul and the taste for the traditional reflected in the beauty of the noble and timeless materials. Alberto prints the taste for details, the subtlety and refinement of the most classic design.

He is always inspired by past times and the heritage of the Mediterranean culture creating spaces of great beauty and harmony.

WHAT WE DO

ARCHITECTURE

We analyze the site in terms of its constraints and possibilities and determine the permits needed. We create the concept design based on the client’s briefing and present the project with floor plans, sketches, material samples, and moodboards. Once approved we develop the executive project and manage the license required for realization.

INTERIOR DESIGN

To achieve the desired overall image, we get into every detail and exclusively design all the interiors, from custom furniture to personalized objects. We curate non-custom furniture, lighting, decorative objects, and artworks. We place orders and organize delivery. We also offer a visual brand identity package that includes graphic concept, physical signage, menu design and business cards when required.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We source suppliers, meet with contractors and get costings for the design. Once contractors are appointed, we supervise throughout the construction process to ensure the design is executed as intended. We review drawings and respond to queries as required. We schedule regular site appointments, and can additionally visit at your request.
