ERA architects

ERA is a Barcelona-based architectural studio with more than 10 years of experience founded by the architect Esther Rovira. Among its projects is the restaurant of the 5 Michelin stars chef Paco Pérez, HUSA hotel in Berlin, touristic apartments, commercial building in Milan, restaurant of Club Nàutic Palamós and collective housing buildings in Garraf and London.

We have also collaborated with renowned international architecture firms, sharing our creative vision to develop emblematic international projects such as the Barcelona football club Nou Camp Nou, the Justice Campus in Madrid and the Toulouse Aerospace Campus in Toulouse.

Today, we are proud to have survived the crisis bringing to reality creative small projects by keeping our structure flexible and fast-reactive.
Our current scenario is working with a wide network of specialized professionals activated depending on each project’s need: architects (Aída, Alborz, Fer, Bori, Ryan), decorators (Inés), quality surveyors (Albert), structural engineers (Jorge), artists (Partee, Dase), graphic designers (Dani), photographers (Esteve), geographers (Greg), geologists (Santi), topographers, environmentalists (Jordi), solar energy experts (Monica), analysts (Alfons), virtual reality professionals (Angel, Josep), augmented reality experts (Suresh) and other consultants (Alba, Alfons, Mónica, Arnout).
