In the interview titled ?Diseño a gran escala. Arquitectura XXL?, ?Large scale design. XXL Architecture?, Luisa Badía underlines the decided approach L35 has taken to develop projects internationally, and where it is already present in countries like France, Switzerland, Morocco, Tunisia, Poland, Bulgaria and Rumania. She emphasizes the specialization of the studio in large complex projects of different typologies, ranging from offices, to headquarters, tourist and residential complexes and large shopping and leisure centers. ?I have been lucky to be involved in projects in different environments and societies, from Switzerland to Morocco, they all very enriching experiences?, she explains in the interview.

L35 is an international architecture firm with offices in Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Geneva, Istanbul, Casablanca, São Paulo, Bogota, Santiago and México City.
Our team is composed of about two hundred professionals, most of them architects, and a series of consultants specialized in all the different areas of expertise required in the development of projects and construction.

Founded in 1967, L35 has been devoted to excellence in architectural design through team work and from the perspective of creative diversity and freedom, as the result of a dialogue with the client concerning their objectives, the context and the environment. The ideas are the generator of the projects. We firmly believe in team work, not only with our consultants but with our clients as well. The large and complex projects require well integrated teams, to achieve a smooth transition from the project through construction. This is applicable to the relationship with our clients where architecture becomes an essential tool for the achievements of the development?s objectives.

L35's practice covers a myriad of architectural forms, projects both large and complex. We are currently working on numerous projects, among which are several office buildings and corporate headquarters, residential complexes and large shopping and leisure centres and other typologies such as hospitals or hotels.

In line with its international development strategy, the firm is currently working on a variety of projects In France, Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Turkey, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru and Argentina.

Faithful to its tradition (the practice?s first large project was awarded in a competition, the Polytechnic University of Valencia), L35 participates in different international competitions, not only in the countries where it is already established but also in those where it aspires to work.
