TALLER Architects specializes in architecture and territory. Our practice has a highly academic approach to design challenges. Investigation is a crucial component in the process that leads to integral solutions for our clients.


- We think architecture should be rigorous and precise.

- We like clear and strong concepts.

- Every single gesture is important: maximum effect with minimum means.

- Our interests are driven by society's genuine needs: global issues.

- By working with universal concepts we develop specific solutions.

- Our mind is constantly set on the future, but we never forget to acknowledge the past.

- We embrace new challenges no matter how big or small, local or remote.


TALLER Architects is based in Bogotá and Amsterdam operating in the fields of research, architecture, and territory (urban and landscape design). The company was established in 2009 in Bogotá, Colombia and currently employs 21 full time staff under the creative direction of founders Julian Restrepo and Pablo Forero.

From Taller 301 to TALLER Architects

In 2018 the firm expanded its international presence with a satellite office in The Netherlands which led to a variation in the company name. The Dutch branch is led by architect Sven Hoogerheide and continues the multidisciplinary design approach set out by the Colombian headquarters.
