Hello, we are Cafeína.
Cafeína is a comprehensive architecture firm that focuses on creating and transforming authentic and inclusive spaces through a multidisciplinary, human, innovative and positive approach to projects.
Cafeína emerged in 2008 in the midst of coffee plantations in the Huasteca Region, with the purpose of bringing about sustainable projects capable of awakening intense sensations, exerting a positive effect on their context and being catalysts to open new ways for vulnerable communities. Our growth has led us to today, where we are currently developing mixed-use, educational, commercial and residential projects on an international level with offices in Mexico and New York.
Our work has been recognized for its quality and innovation in architectural design, being selected as part of the “Best International Houses Design” exhibition at the XVII Venice Architecture Biennale, and awarded with the America’s Property Awards (Toronto, 2017), The Architecture Biennial of Puebla (2018 & 2016), as well as the Top 100 Projects of Archdaily in 2016, among others.
Constant experimentation that seeks to optimize the user experience with propositional ideas, aware of reality and its contexts. The High performance, and local innovation model seeks the expressiveness of the elements through local solutions, which consider the availability of materials and innovate through constant experimentation, working with the materials of the site, achieving high expressiveness results.
We know that the projects built have a strong impact on the communities, which is why we propose a Positive Impact model from the creation of the projects, which is based on the sustainable development model that implies a multidisciplinary scope covering the Political aspects, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental and Legal.
We are aware of the creative power of the user as the protagonist of the space, where the user has a role as important as that of the architect in architectural production; said user will create new spaces through his experience, giving different meanings to the one proposed by the designer. In this way, we are co-authors of the space together with its users, whom we encourage to express their own drives.
