WHAT IS CASAS LAUTES?
Casas Lautes is a boutique property development practice based in Barcelona, Spain.
Founded in 2013, each Casas Lautes project has been a workshop for us to identify and demonstrate new ideas. We want our clients to make sentient connections to the spaces we create, hence our naming Lautes, stemming from the German word for ‘language, or tone’.
Our pragmatic approach to design unites craftsman and material, employing new and traditional mechanisms to create spaces of wonderment. This is achieved through a working methodology of collaborative rational inquiry, undertaken in the spirit of curiosity and experimentation.
We are drawn to working with budding architecture and interior design teams, and have collaborated for recent projects with Arquitectura-G, winners of the 2015 Mies van de Rohe award for best emerging architects. The team looks to the pioneers of modernist design—Niemeyer and Le Corbusier—breaking architecture down to its simplest, most comprehensive forms, and investing research to avoid the clichés of modern interiors.
Excellence in design is pursued through cultivating close relationships with our clients, consultant teams, contractors and end users, with the intention to improve the landscape of real estate markets in Spain and further afield.
