FiveOHFive was founded in London in 2015 by María León Ferreiro and Eduardo López Solórzano. We collaborate together from the PFC in Madrid, in different architecture offices and in personal projects and competitions. The name FiveOHFive comes from the apartment in London (number 505 of E1 8NJ) in which the first assignment for the team was forged and is born from the desire to offer something new in the profession, where we could put into practice what we have learned in years of work and life abroad.
We lean on influences of all kinds and backgrounds, we challenge stereotypes and explore new ways of solving problems. We seek to celebrate materiality, color and richness in everyday details. We enjoy being close to the client and creating personalized designs.
