PROYECTOS A MEDIDA. ARQUITECTURA Y DISEÑO

Sara Romero y Mario Vallejo, Arquitectos y Diseñadores con más de 15 años de experiencia, son los socios fundadores de Romero Vallejo.

Después de estudiar arquitectura en diferentes universidades, Barcelona, Valladolid y Roma; y tras haber colaborado con diversas firmas de reconocido prestigio internacional, fundan Romero Vallejo en el año 2004.

En Romero Vallejo se desarrollan proyectos de pequeña y gran escala, para particulares, empresas privadas y organismos oficiales. 

El estudio tiene experiencia en el desarrollo de proyectos creativos en los campos de la Arquitectura, Diseño de Interiores, Diseño de Producto y Dirección Creativa.

En sus proyectos las diferentes disciplinas se funden para crear proyectos únicos, a medida, que reflejan un estilo de vida. Los proyectos están guiados por la creencia de que la calidad del entorno influye directamente en nuestro día a día.

Su interés por el diseño de producto integrado en la arquitectura les ha llevado a colaborar en diversos sectores como el de la cerámica, el vidrio, la carpintería metálica y de madera y el del mobiliario.

Después de desarrollar varios proyectos a través de la Fundación Española para la Innovación de la Artesanía, en 2013 presentan, en la Feria de Mueble de Milán, su primera colección de mobiliario de exteriores para la firma Gandiablasco. A partir de ese momento, realizan productos para diferentes firmas internacionales.

En este tiempo Sara y Mariano han asumido, además, otros roles; como Directores de Proyecto y Project Managers de Vitápolis, una cooperativa de servicios para la construcción de un complejo residencial de apartamentos para personas mayores de 50 años; y Directores de Diseño de Interior para Hem, marca de mobiliario de diseño nórdico de venta online, con sede en Berlín.

Actualmente, son Directores y Directores Creativos de DIABLA, la nueva marca de mobiliario de exterior de Gandiablasco.

En el campo de la enseñanza, Romero Vallejo colabora regularmente con diversos centros de diseño y universidades, siendo en la actualidad directores de Tesis de los alumnos de Home en IED-Madrid.
