b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos has offices in Barcelona, Madrid, Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre (Brazil). The studio works providing comprehensive services in architecture, urban planning, interior and industrial design for both the public and private sectors.
b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos is a multicultural and multilingual studio employing more than 40 professionals of up to seven nationalities. This gives the studio a wide-ranging and enriching vision of global reality.
b720 is first and foremost a team. The practice produces architecture that is resolutely contemporary and reflects its commitment to the responsible use of natural resources. The coherence of the firm’s work is based on a distinctive way of working that deliberately avoids the development of a particular style or formalistic approach. Each project emerges from the search for a specific solution, with clients and society as essential reference points. The response to the programme, context, budget and time constraints is necessarily unique. 720 is the number assigned to architecture under the international coding system for materials. The name of the team is thus an abstract, codified reflection of the firm’s founding mission to produce good architecture.
Fermín Vázquez (Madrid, 1961) is the head of the b720 architectural practice. He graduated from the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM) and has pursued doctoral studies at the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB). He combines professional practice with teaching activity.

He participates in workshops and conferences at institutions and universities around the world and regularly contributes to specialised international publications.
