SV60 arquitectos is a company of Architecture and Urbanism, based on more than 35 years of experience, that serves in any areas within its scope and at every stage of development. The company conducts researches, construction projects, urban planning and also manages and controls the complete construction process of the projects. It has its headquarters in Seville, Spain, and works throughout the whole national and international territory.
SV60 Arquitectos offer a right combination of tradition and innovation attending to the characteritics of the place where each Project is located (Culture, heritage, climate conditions, people needs, etc). Our work in Andalusia (south of Spain), where we are based, has provided us with extensive experience in architectural interventions in places characterized by the mixture of different cultures and a dry and sunny climate.
Our office works from the specificity of each project. We have great experience in the development of projects of different scale, and specifically in the development, among others of the following type of projects:
- Sports Architecture
- Residential Architecture
- Offices and government headquarters
- Hotels and public buildings
- Masterplans and public space
- Transport Infrastructures
Architecture's team practice is based on the search for synthetic answers to multiple aspects which define each project (physical, cultural, environmental, economic and functional) by combining technical rigor and research. The main guidelines in this proccess are: Our interest in the potential of construction to create new places to improve the way of life of people, and to deal with the context, focusing on the relationship of architecture with the environment and the territory. The target is to propose an innovative integration between architecture, man and landscape, deeply concerned for the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainbility. Built projects are informed by a sensitive approach to the physical and cultural context, establishing a closer dialogue to the place based on tectonic logic rather than language issues or style discussions.
Our Architecture is associated to permanence, not to variation and change. We believe that it is necessary to take the maximum capability of the site, and using the architecture to create a new Place. On that sense we understand our architectural concept as a simple equation: the balance between enclosing, making a place and defining its limits on one hand, and on the other the capacity of the space to give shelter and to hold programs that are adapted to the contemporary way of life.
Mass, void, light, material...The sort of perception of architecture that we are proposing bears mainly on these timeless values.
SV60 Arquitectos is a multidisciplinary team of Architects, Engineers, draughtsmen and administrative staff, and Financial and Environment Experts based in Seville, Spain. We are a multicultural team working in a wide range of projects, from architecture to territorial consultancy. We regularly collaborate with national and international teams of engineers, landscapers, artists and other experts.

We are able to form the most suitable team depending on the specifications of each project. Our Architectural firm is leaded by two main partners: Antonio González Cordón and Antonio G. Liñán.
