Enrique Hermoso and Karin Heimannsfeld have been working together since 1989 after installing themselves in Madrid following various years spent in Frankfurt and London working for architectural firms such as Richard Rogers and Zaha Hadid, among others.
Since then, they have been the trusted architects of the German Embassy in Madrid and have developed several projects both individually and jointly.
In 2004 they founded Hermoso & Heimannsfeld Arquitectos S.L., an architectural firm geared to achieving high quality and technical products.
Their work is focused on developments for public office, especially cultural buildings and sports complexes where their great skills are demonstrated. The buildings are generally marked by their representative character and functional complexity.
They have also built and designed other unique works such as religious buildings, housing and restaurants or rehabilitation work for private clients seeking a more sophisticated product or simply higher value.
Their most representative works include the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid, the Rafael Alberti Public Library of San Fernando de Henares, the public indoor swimming pool in Villanueva del Pardillo , the chapel for the Retamar School in Pozuelo and the Comprehensive Recovery Project of the Plaza de España in San Fernando de Henares including the refurbishment of listed buildings of cultural interest, development of housing and commercial premises in the surrounding (adjacent) streets and providing underground parking facilities in the Plaza de España square. The project is completed with the design and conversion of the old granary building into the city museum.
Currently, they are designing and constructing the new church for the Retamar School, which provides an oratory for about 600 persons and a lecture hall for 450 visitors.
