Carlos Arroyo Architects, Madrid based office for Architecture and
Urbanism, has an international scope, building in Spain, France, Belgium, Rwanda, Colombia and Argentina.

The work ranges from institutional projects like Oostkamp Civic Center (Belgium) and the Academy of Performing Arts Dilbeek (Belgium), through to large developments like the eco-neighbourhood Ecobarrio de Toledo (Spain) or Camaleón Living in Rivas Ecopolis (Spain). The total construction budget of the works in which he has played a major role
exceeds 200 million€.

We have developed protocols for innovation on all scales, from building technology to landscape management, developing new types of public building, or researching into new forms of housing. Our work, described by critics as “sustainable exuberance”, claims to set the frame for a new architectural culture, language and aesthetics, through the ethics, technology and parameters of sustainability.

We have achieved benchmarks like:
• 2015 Academie MWD, the Academie of Music, Word and Dance
in Dilbeek (Belgium) was included in the eight “Future Listed Buildings” (Patrimonium voor de toekomst) built in the last three years in
Flanders-Brabant.

• 2015 Nobelia Office Tower in Kigali (Rwanda) has received the
maximum rating by the Green Building Council: World Leadership 6 Stars (Green Star SA Office v1 Design Shell & Core). It is the first 6 star building in inter-tropical Africa, and indeed the first on the continent outside South Africa.

• 2015 MdP Maison du Projet de La Lainière de Roubaix is the first
registered C2C (Cradle to Cradle Inspired) building in France. It is the seed building for a regeneration of the whole La Lainière area towards
a circular economy.

• 2013 OostCampus, is now a reference for the design of City Halls in
Belgium, having received the Prijs Bowmeester National Award for Public Buildings. OostCampus is also a reference for Universal Design. In 2011 the project was awarded the Holcim Silver Award for Sustainable
Architecture in Europe. In 2012 it was selected in Archdaily’s list of
65 Best New Buildings in the World 2012.
