ELA is an architectural design firm headquartered in Madrid, Spain with diversified services including architectural design, urban planning and interior design.
ELA´s mission is to deliver exceptional design ideas and solutions through the creative blending of human need, environmental stewardship, value creation, science and art, involved in a diverse portfolio including office, civic, cultural, healthcare, residential, academic, transportation, landscape and mixed-use projects.
ELA’s approach to utilizing digital tools and technologies, contemporary theory, innovative building practices and advancements in engineering solutions and environmental sustainability have afforded the practice a broad and powerful perspective on all aspects related to architectural building design and city planning.
With each project the firm explores new ways to integrate an organizing idea with the programmatic and functional essence of a building. Rather than imposing a style upon different sites and climates, or pursued irrespective of program, the unique character of a program and a site becomes the starting point for an architectural idea. While anchoring each work in its specific site and circumstance, ELA endeavors to obtain a deeper beginning in the experience of time, space, light and materials.
