CAZA (CARLOS ARNAIZ ARCHITECTS) IS A BROOKLYN-BASED DESIGN STUDIO, WORKSHOP, AND THINK TANK WITH OFFICES IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES, AND BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA.

Our team consists of design professionals from around the world who envision an optimistic future for architectural thinking and informed experimentation. A collaborative office as committed to building as to the ideas that inform building, we believe that innovation inspires trust. Whether designing a bespoke residence, creating a master plan for a vibrant urban center, or rethinking how we work through an office building, we believe breakthroughs transform material culture into social expression. Our work represents an engagement with the history of making buildings and placing them in complex dynamic environments.

CAZA IS CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A 450,000-SQUARE-METER MIXED-USE COMPLEX IN MANILA, A 90-HECTARE MASTER PLAN FOR AN EMERGING METROPOLITAN DISTRICT IN CHINA, AND A LARGE-SCALE CIVIC DEVELOPMENT IN BOGOTÁ. PROJECTS SLATED TO OPEN IN 2016 INCLUDE A HOTEL, AN OFFICE TOWER, AND A CHURCH.
