Our Approach …

Our Approach

We design the act of living in a unique and unrepeatable context.

We are motivated by a sincere commitment to the environment, public space and to the communities that will be affected by our projects.

Every project is tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients.

We design unique buildings based on the light, orientation and size of each location.Therefore, we do not specialize in any type of building or style.

The principals  lead the design process.

Then the collaborative work of the team assigned to each project enriches and develops it.

Experienced Specialists have accompanied us for decades.

Our processes and the use of advanced technology ensure a comprehensive workflow and efficient interaction with our specialists, builders and customers.Thus, better projects end up in better buildings.

Our People


Alfonso Ferrer is the only one of the three founder partners of the firm that remains to this day, and directs all the projects developed by FARQ. Born in Chile, in 1990 he graduated as an architect at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the Catholic University of Valparaiso, Chile. In 1994, after undertaking studies in Design Sciences and Energy Efficiency at the University of Sydney Australia, he returned to Chile to create FERRER Architects, convinced of the need to implement modeling three-dimensional computer aided design tools in their design process, thus forming a collaborative and highly specialized professional team. Over the time this three-dimensional and collaborative working method has been renamed as BIM, an acronym for ‘Building Information Modeling’. His holistic conception of human behavior and the way it interacts with the environment has been the key factor both, for the collaborative management model of FARQ projects and in for his public activity, fully committed to the common good.
