He loved to cook, and she loved to read. A specially created corner of the kitchen, a large window sill sublimely designed to be a comfortable sofa placed by a window for the wife to enjoy books by natural light as her husband prepared dinner. A simple idea, yet a wonderful surprise; one typical of Jaime Salvá.

‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,’ said Leonardo Da Vinci, a premise embraced by this renowned architect firm with its office on Paseo del Borne. Jaime Salvá experienced the heights of his trade in San Francisco for architectural great “Korth Sunseri Hagey Architects”, gaining involvement on heavyweight projects such as the home of George Lucas, or office buildings in Silicon Valley. The entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley injected fresh vigour into Salvá’s approach, and exposed him to a most modern design sensibility.
Innovation meets tried-and-tested, timeless values. Great-grandfather was in the world of construction; Great-uncle a respected contractor who built e.g. the Palau March; father was an interior designer, and Jaime Salvá continues the family aptitude for building prowess with valour and admirable dedication to excellence. A solid, trusting and personal relationship with the client is key, the foundation on which dreams can be built.
Those who choose Jaime Salvá are demonstrating they have aesthetic regard and sensitivity, and in turn Salvá and his team realise that client’s potential to co-create a magnificent property by listening, liaising, and understanding them on a deep level. Through curiosity and empathy comes brilliance.
Whether American, British, French, Swedish, German, Chinese or Spanish, Jaime Salvá makes a difference to the existences of those whose lives he serves in a profound way. Not only in those thoughtful, clever details apparent everywhere in his designs, solving needs they were themselves not aware they had, but in the construction of an asset, a valuable investment that that they can reap the rewards of in years to come.
Founding his own architecture studio at the early age of 26 and starting his successful career winning right after that a contest to design an office building, takes energy, devotion, and a love for the game. As film director Lucas would have noted, the force is with Jaime Salvá.
