Who we are

PAUL CREMOUX Studio is an architectural studio committed to distinguishing sustainable, eco-effective building designs. Our goal is to produce architecture that celebrates life and enriches the natural environment and the human condition. We envision a process that integrates environmental enrichment proposals, beauty, and social responsibility with the client’s needs and desires.

We respond to the needs of our clients through an organized and systematic method based on the most contemporary technological tools, we control the preparation and development of projects of various types and scales. Our way of working guarantees the complete satisfaction of our clients and the internationally recognized quality of our designs. We use technologies such as “Performance Base Design,” “Life Cycle Assessment,” specific climate analyses, and different types of Modeling to predict and control Energy Consumption and Operating Expenses of Buildings; in this way, we can propose various solutions that help our clients to make informed decisions during the design process.

Paul Cremoux’s studio work has been exhibited at Mexico’s City Museum of Modern Art (MAM), The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), London UK, and Best 30 Firms of Mexico (Architizer NYC) 2023. Feature at CBS News, in “10 Homes with Incredible Vertical Gardens”, and Mexico’s City Public spaces and galleries. Winners and Finalists in several international contests like Best 30 Houses of the World at (WAN) World Architectural News. Best of Design at Houzz platform CA. USA and Second Won Place in the Guadalajara Library International Contest. We have been awarded multiple grants and scholarships, such as CONACYT (The National Council of Science and Technology) and FONCA (The National Fund for Culture and Arts), among others. We offer academic courses at prestigious universities, including UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico), IBERO (Universidad Iberoamericana), Anahuac University, and ITESM (The Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education). Our work has been featured in various national and international design magazines, TV shows, books, newspapers, and architectural web blogs.

What we care about

Forty percent of the world’s energy is used by buildings. More than fifty percent of the greenhouse gasses come from buildings and the construction industry. How we design and build our spaces must respond to the challenge we face as a civilization.

Adopting sustainable alternatives is not only a matter of progress; it is a matter of survival. The way we produce, consume, and relinquish the material world due to the Industrial Revolution has proven unacceptable. From an architectural point of view, we believe that everything built must be part of the environment and interact positively with it. For that, we design responsibly.

We present a novel economic approach for the real estate sector, where architecture plays a crucial role in enhancing our planet. We align with the new industrial revolution, which is intelligent, generous, and sustainable. Through the use of advanced methodologies like Performance-Based Design, Site Analysis, Energy Modeling, and Life Cycle Assessment Systems, we can forecast and suggest a variety of passive and mechanical strategies that enable our clients to make informed decisions during the design phase.

For us, the relation between the process and the final result is a parameter of paramount importance in implementing new ideas, and we use our designs as the human resource that nature needs.
