We have been awarded several prizes and acknowledgements, and our continued efforts are based on upholding the ideals which gave rise to the company: creating an entity to work with what we are really passionate about, conveying and thereby preserving the island´s natural and cultural values.  This is why, after all these years, we have decided that in order to keep on doing great things, we need to remain small, close, thorough, attentive, sensitive, committed, human…, all of which implies a guarantee of quality.

We run a multidisciplinary, young, dynamic and committed team capable of undertaking a wide range of projects:
