usoarquitectura (use-architecture) is an studio devoted to architecture and interior design. We understand architecture as a whole and that is why we approach projects without rules.
usoarquitectura is the professional and life project of Gabriel Salazar and Fernando Castanon. Since 2005 they have printed their decisive, impeccable quality aesthetic and beyond the line proposals into solutions for their clients to use architecture.
Studied architecture at Universidad La Salle, Mexico City and graduated in 1997. He has wide experience developing residential and corporate projects, as well as stage scene. All these he has transmitted to the new generations through teaching and workshops in important universities in Mexico City.
Studied architecture at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, UNAM and graduated in 2000. He received a master degree in design and theory of architecture from Universidad Politecnica de Catalunya, ETSAB (2001). He worked in Monteverde Arquitectos studio in Barcelona (2002). His foreign experience allowed him to print a diverse point of view to his professional activities which he combined with teaching.
We use the best technology, resources and tools to satisfy our clients needs. We design spaces with the highest quality, efficiency and integration of architecture to the day to day activities. In every project we achieve the expected results combining experience and innovation, contributing with solutions and taking risks.
As experts in the use of the space our main goal is to maximize its value. With tools such as quick delivery, efficiency and high-tech resources we always search for the best quality in the space requested by the client.
The history of a great project is usually the history of a great client, one who is willing to use architecture and assume the risks involved in good ideas. Architecture blurs the boundaries between public and private, interior and exterior; changing frontiers and extending the limits. Things do not take place isolated, just like nature, one event triggers another. Architecture based on nature is more real to the world we live in.
