MSAA GROUP stems from the fusion of two generations of architects and planners whose mission is to produce high quality liveable spaces at the heart of open and evolutive cities.

More than 25 people make up the team of MSAA GROUP, with a broad range of skills and professional backgrounds who have a strong commitment to work closely with its clients to achieve outstanding results in all types of commissions.




Adolf Martínez and Josep Lluís Sisternas lead MSA+A, Martínez&Sisternas Arquitectes i Associats, an architectural and urban design office which has completed projects throughout Barcelona, Catalonia and Spain since its establishment in 1984. The practice has been awarded several local and international prizes including the Puig i Cadafach architecture prize (2007), the prizes at the international competitions for the transformation of the west seafront of Malaga, and the railway area of El Portillo in Zaragoza and the shortlisting of the New Council in Castellcir at the Premio Internazionale di Architettura Andrea Palladio.




Luis Beriain, Jose Ángel Cicero and Lluc Coma began collaborating in 2006 and founded MAGMA ARQUITECTURA, a young practice that rigorously works for the production of high- quality domestic spaces.



Sandra Dachs and Núria Selva founded DS ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN in 2009, an architectural and interior design studio specialized in the hotel sector.




Maria Sisternas holds an MSc in City Design and Social Sciences from the London School of Economics and since working for MSAA GROUP she has undertaken the urban research related to sustainable growth and quality of life.

She is currently on leave from MSAAGROUP for she has joined the Urban Habitat Department of the Barcelona City Council. (February 2012 onwards)
