Start the course by getting to know a little bit about Ana García, how she started out in architecture and interior design, and her main influences. See how a comprehensive renovation is carried out at Nook Architects by analyzing their House of Mirrors project.

Strengthen your knowledge of interior design projects such as the architectonic scale of different spaces that a house is comprised of the selection of new materials in tune with existing ones, lighting, and the right furniture. See how all these new aspects are linked to social changes and to the lifestyle of each user.

Next, discover some tips and tricks to make a start on your blank page, and create sketches for the preliminary phase of your project. Create your sketches with your chosen medium, either paper or your favorite 3D software.

Learn how to plan even the smallest details to avoid any unexpected issues, by seeing the House of Mirrors’ implementation process, as well as other projects. Finally, get some advice on how to represent your work in the best way possible, to share it with the right channels.

When the studio where Ana García worked as a project manager alongside Joan G. Cortés and Rubén Férez closed down, she suggested to her colleagues that they start their own, and so Nook Architects was born.

Their work has been published in several digital media platforms, as well as magazines like AD Spain, Maison Creative, Dwell Magazine, Deezen, Neo2, Casa 10, CÔTÉ SUD, and AD100, among others.
