Tac architects is an architectural studio founded by Eduard Gascón and Vicente Galiana in 1997. It integrates a large professional team with extensive knowledge and experience in architectural design and construction, urbanism, landscaping, interior design and refurbishment works.
Our professional practice is based on quality and commitment throughout all the process that makes possible the achievement of a successful design outcome.
This is carried out, never sacrificing the cultural dimensions of architecture, by maintaining open dialogue with the client, paying attention to user needs, having control of the budget, meeting deadlines and being in accordance with the authorities. Such attitude has allowed us to offer a calm and balanced response to the challenges posed by our clients, which include both public administrations and private developers.
Thus, TAC built work has been recognized with numerous awards and distinctions among which include the renovation project of the old Laboratorios Uriach and Office Tower Diagonal 682, FAD awards finalists or Turo Park Can Mates award of Landscape Architecture Biennale del Vallès
Over the past few years, the studio has worked on two projects of special importance and significance for the city of Barcelona: the tower for the new headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce on the Diagonal Avenue and Sagrera Intermodal Station, the large metropolitan transport complex, currently under construction, which will connect the high-speed rail network, train, metro and bus services.
At the same time, and as a result of an intense collaboration with companies in the construction sector, we have added research and development of new industrialization models in construction to our usual practice: Les Parellades School in Sant Pere de Ribes and social housing in Torelló, a pioneering four-storey building formed by three-dimensional steel modules manufactured in a workshop, are examples of this research area.
As a result of an extensive experience in refurbishment, we are currently developing three complete renovation projects: the Railway Museum in Vilanova y la Geltrú, the residence Llars de l´Amistat in Barcelona and the office building Balmes 49 located in the Eixample, also in Barcelona.
Recently the firm has worked on the Draft recreational and tourist complex known as BCN WORLD in Tarragona
