AHEAD BARCELONA HEALTHCARE ARCHITECTURE was born from the transformation of Estudi PSP Arquitectura -founded by Lluis Mª Pascual, Ferran de los Santos and Joan Mª Pascual in 1969- into a studio with new challenges and hopes. We work to respond to the needs of the future, strengthening our specialization in architecture within the field of healthcare and betting on innovation and corporate social responsibility.
Our extensive experience, of more than 50 years of professional work, enables us to carry out highly complex projects in the field of healthcare architecture.
Ramon Torrents and Clara Rius lead the studio as partner directors, transforming its mission for continuous improvement in design processes. Since 2002 we have been developing projects in the field of health, designing new hospitals, expanding and reforming existing hospitals, health centers, mental health units, elderly residences and other health facilities.
In recent years we have focused our efforts and research on healing space, person-centered care and neuroscience applied to architectural design, studying a master's degree at the University of Venice.
The main line of work is to look for the scientific evidence that accompanies the designs of built environments to improve the experiences of the people who inhabit them, as well as to ensure the social commitment of our actions and respect for the plurality of users.
