Arantza Ozaeta and Álvaro Martín Fidalgo are architects who combine professional practice with academic and research work. They founded O.F. ARCHITECTS in 2023 -previously known as TallerDe2- established in Madrid since 2008. They conceive their work as a collaborative practice, by gathering working teams with members whose diverse backgrounds contribute to achieve high quality projects with responsible results for a happy life. Their interests focus on the exploration of architecture as a vehicle for urban regeneration, intergenerational care, and socio-environmental challenges, developing initiatives in collaboration with private, municipal and territorial agents in permanent commitment to innovative practice.

They have won and built national and international competitions, and their work has been recognized on multiple occasions, including the German Bauwelt-Preis Award (2013), for the best first built work; the COAM-Luis Moreno Mansilla Award (2013), for best work done abroad; the FAD Award for Thought and Criticism (2016), in collaboration with HipoTesis publisher; the Europe 40under40 recognition (2017) by the European Centre. His work has also been selected and exhibited in the Spanish Architecture Biennial (2013-2021), the FAD International (2014) and the FAD Architecture (2020). Also in the international exhibitions 'Archipaper. Dibujos desde el plano' (2018), 'Architetus Omnibus?`(2015) or 'Export Arquitectura Española en el extranjero' (2015). They have curated the lecture series Argument#1 "Sampling-Contexts" at the ETSAM where they are also editors of the homonymous book that was recognized with the COAM-Diffusion Award (2021). Their work has been published on numerous occasions in magazines such as A+U, Arquitectura Viva, Architectural Record, A10, Bauwelt, Detail or Domus.

Arantza Ozaeta and Álvaro Martín Fidalgo have developed their teaching activity at the AA-Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, the ETH in Zurich, the Hochschule Coburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany and at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid-ETSAM, where they are currently professors in the Architectural Design Department.
