Meet Francisco Ricardo and Catherine Jessurum, visionary architects and founding partners of the successful DEB studio. Passionate about creating spaces that generate well-being and connection, their approach has been reflected in projects ranging from houses to large public works. Their fascination with unfinished spaces and the participation of those who use them has led them to explore nanoarchitecture, a discipline that allows habitats to be created simply and quickly. These architects will inspire you to translate your dreams into real projects in this exciting course.

Catherine Jessurum is an architect specialized in interior design with a deep passion for creating spaces that connect with people's emotions. As a partner in the DEB studio, her work focuses on detailing and designing each corner with the intention of generating unique experiences in each environment. Her focus on the relationship between spaces and those who inhabit them has led her to explore nanoarchitecture, where every millimeter comes to emotional life. In addition to her work in architecture, Catherine has an important connection with handicrafts and collaboration with artisan communities, a key aspect of her design philosophy.

Francisco Ricardo, with his creative and disruptive approach, is passionate about creating spaces that transcend the everyday. He is an architect who is dedicated to the exploration of public spaces and facilities, with a focus on uniting communities and respect for diversity. His experience spans creating places that not only provide recreation, but also tell stories and foster community. Parallel to their architecture studio, Francisco and Catherine have explored the world of handicraft and collaboration with artisans in their product brand, GRES, creating unique decorative pieces. Their passion for research and adaptability is reflected in each project they tackle, where form adapts to functionality and space transcends generations and uses.
