About the Firm

Obra Architects is an international practice based in New York City: its driving force is a diverse team of designers who have converged in the city from all over the world. Obra has a rich record of working in the United States, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. In this dialectical vision of the project—rational construction and empowered inhabitation—, Obra Architects is committed to searching for the unique opportunity to develop a singular architecture: one that is not dull or insensitive to the needs of people, but that rather manages, through sensitive design, to be both intelligent in construction and generous in living potentialities. They design affordable and sustainable buildings, urban master plans, and landscapes that seek to realize the maximum potential of human life for those who inhabit them.
