Marc Alventosa Zaidin created his studio in Barcelona in 2006. Xavier Morell Jané came on board in 2008 and in 2010 they joined forces in creating Alventosa Morell Arquitectes. The team has experience in a variety of building typologies, such as houses, schools, healthcare buildings, hotels and historical renovations, however sustainability and environmentally friendly design is the firm's key specialty. Incorporating energy efficient strategies in producing self-sufficient architecture is paramount to Alventosa and Morell. At the same time, they aim for buildings that are also 'socially and economically responsible'. Their portfolio features a wealth of residential work. Highlights include the white, rectilinear composition of Casa VC in La Floresta near Barcelona, and the timber-clad, single-storey volumes that make up Casa GG in Santa Maria de Palautordera - a bioclimatic house, which the architects count among their favourites 'for its constructive coherence, its degree of energy efficiency and the comfort achieved'.
