A futuristic zen suite, a conceptual meeting space or even a mobile dental practice, the Montalba Architects firm founded by Swiss-American David Montalba, shows creativity and ingenuity in terms of architecture and urban design. The team has redoubled its efforts to maximize the potential of several narrow spaces.

«Small structures and compact spaces present an unparalleled opportunity to exquisitely, and rigorously, realize the interplay between form and substance, and intersect architecture with art», notes David Montalba. Since its founding in 2004, the firm has won more than 80 national and international awards, including nearly 30 from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and accolades from World Interiors News (WIN), International Design Award and World Architecture Festival, among others.
