All RWA projects are a new challenge to offer our clients excellence, rigor and innovation.
RWA stands out for carrying out projects with careful architectural value, paying exhaustive attention to meet deadlines, costs and quality throughout all the project and work phases.
Efficiency - RWA offers their clients knowledge and methodologies to enhance the profitability of their operations, carrying out high-quality work in their interests, with rigorous control of deadlines and costs.
Rigour and Honesty - RWA's analyses and diagnoses are distinguished by their rigour and honesty.
The future of Architecture needs environmental awareness. We are convinced that good architecture is always sustainable regardless of whether technological advances allow efficient new solutions to be incorporated.
The understanding that we at RWA have of the building process allows us to assume all the functions of a Project Manager and Construction Manager, from the site selection and the characteristics of the works and investment to be made, to the potential contractors, cost control, etc.
The RWA Studio of Architecture began its activity in Madrid in 1984 headed by Inés Ramseyer and Adolfo Waisman, both of them architects with doctoral dissertations on large-scale residential settlements, socio-economic impact, complementary activities and public services.
Experience - Now with over 35 year´s standing, RWA have built up a solid reputation based on the results of its many undertakings and on its capacity for taking on projects of different scales with exhaustive guarantees of quality and efficiency.
Technical excellence - RWA's projects stand out for their technical quality, recognised by their clients and demonstrated in the works built.
At RWA, we establish a direct collaboration with our clients, taking on their challenges and sharing their objectives. The projects provide the spatial support for their activities and business needs.
Our team aims, through our work and from a constructively critical viewpoint and participating with other agents, to contribute towards building a world which helps make life better, motivates, thrills and grows with the best qualities as human beings.
Environmental Commitment - RWA's projects are planned as a response to human needs in a time and place, paying attention and respect to the environment in which it intervenes, with social responsibility, controlled use of resources and optimizing energy efficiency.
RWA are professionally committed to monitoring all phases of the projects until their completion, maintaining the principle that architects' work ends when the execution of the work has been completed and not before.
We have carried out numerous interventions for Spanish and foreign companies, always satisfactorily solving works of urbanism, architecture and interior architecture of different magnitude and scale in multiple sectors, namely:
• Industrial Buildings
Likewise, we have developed works in master planning and landscaping, and forays into furniture and graphic design.
RWA consider that the building process is one sole unit within which architectural factors such as work execution, economic and finantial considerations, marketing and merchandising, interrelate. This concept facilitates communication with our clients and allows us to take on all the characteristic functions of project and construction management on some occasions, right from the selection of the site and the characteristics of the work and the investment to be made, down to possible contractors, cost control, etc.
We believe that architecture is valid if, as well as solving the problems that have been posed, it puts forward further values.
Our aim is to respond to human needs in a time and place; therefore we pay attention to values, social responsibility, controlled use of resources, energy efficiency, etc
We are environmentally aware, and convinced that good architecture is always sustainable regardless of whether technological advances allow efficient new solutions to be incorporated.
We carry out an ongoing review of our concepts concerning inhabited areas and natural spaces.
We are careful to study the site correctly, as well as its spatial and formal relationship to the surroundings, handling our activities with respect so as not to cause any environmental impact.
We take into consideration the durability and ease of maintenance of our undertakings, including in the projects innovative construction solutions and materials.
We are interested in:
• New experiences.
• Adding a bonus to inhabited areas.
• Work well done, without the need to hug the limelight, or seek acclamation apart from that of the users of our solutions and interventions.
Without prejudice; considering each project as unique and as a new opportunity.
With an open mind in our approach to the problems that may arise, and aspiring to find innovative solutions.
Setting up a stimulating atmosphere for creative work.
With an efficient and rigorous attitude to the work as well as to the compliance of time limits; always in a cordial and friendly atmosphere.
Paying great attention to detail and leaving nothing to chance.
Taking advantage of systematic design methodologies and computerised work process.
Open to experiences of collaboration with other architects, including international ones.
The development of the projects is permanently oriented to provide solutions tailored to the needs and requirements of customers. We work with proximity and the partners maintain a direct relationship with the clients.
The client's objectives are compatible with the optimisation of functional, formal and economic results, assuming respect for the site's environment in which the project is located.
Our list of clients, which you can consult here and which is constantly growing, includes the most important agents in the real estate market, including private investors, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT-SOCIMIS) and Real Estate Investment Fund managers.
At RWA, we believe that the people who make up the organisation are its most valuable asset, therefore, we insist on building a dynamic team, always ready to take on new challenges.
At RWA we are committed to continuous training and creative evolution with constant critical updating on architectural values, materials and technologies.
We work together within a flexible, horizontally organised structure with detailed responsibilities for each team member.
Our coordinated team with updated training, allows us to approach projects with quality, efficiency and speed of response.
We are professionals assisted by a solid group of the best external collaborators, engineers and specialists.
For each project we set up multidisciplinary work groups, coordinated by a project manager who is constantly in touch with the client and external collaborators.
Inés Ramseyer dedicates part of her time to continuing her most creative facet in her photography works and cultural activities.
We feel proud of having had the oportunity of working with some of the most important clients in the property sector.

RWA establish continuous improvements in its services and constant updates in methodologies.
