Estudio Lamela,  is one of the most renowned Spanish architectural firms. It was founded by Antonio Lamela in 1954 and has developed almost 2.000 projects from residential, tourist or sports to large infrastructures.

In this interview with Carlos Lamela, Executive President of the studio, and responsible for the design of Roca Madrid Gallery, he talks about some of his most emblematic works such as terminal 4 of the Barajas Airport in Madrid.

T4 became a benchmark in airport architecture and, nearly 15 years later, it continues to top the rankings of the most beautiful terminals, which makes us very proud.

He also explains the complexity of Centro Canalejas Madrid, one of the most transcendental urban interventions in Europe in recent decades, that includes a Four Seasons luxury hotel, a shopping arcade, 22 luxury homes and 400 parking spaces.
