The Studio
 
The architecture and city planning studio ALTRIM was founded by Miquel Alvarez Trincado, as an expansion of his career that began in 1967. Altrim representeda step forward in his philosophy, giving comprehensive customer service in a profession that Trincado Alvarez sensed would be more complex and needed an architect who, as well as being a good designer, could meet the needs of the customers.

Miquel Alvarez Trincado formed specialized teams in the equipment and the office, the professionals always overseeing the entire process of construction. This structure has remained to this day in ALTRIM, getting high quality products, that represent to our customers the highest level of satisfaction and profitability.

For more than forty years, the ALTRIM studio has completed a great number of projects of different types in Barcelona and many other areas around Catalunya. Currently, and under new direction by Ariadna Alvarez Garreta, the studio has added new services such at the field of building renovation and maintenance.

Miquel Alvarez Trincado Career
 
Miquel Avarez Trincado, Architect (Barcelona, 1939-2008)

His professional career began in 1963 when Alvarez Trincado was still studying architecture at Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB), with buildings in Castelldefels. He got his degree in 1965 and a doctorate in 1969, remaining in the university a few years as an associate professor of projects until 1973 when he devoted himself exclusively to his studio, an intense task that he pursued with dedication, rigor and passion until the last day.

His work can be divided into three periods: 1963 to 1973, 1974 to 1983 and from 1984 to 2008, 45 years planning and building architectural projects, 45 years at the head of a studio directing a large team that has been able to face a number of projects.

The first period is where a personal language was created and developed, influenced by the Italian from Milan (above all I. Gardella and V. Magistretti) and F.Ll.Wright (his great teacher together with I. Kahn Louis), but also influenced by the style of Brutalism Archictecture and the psychedelic Beatles. It was his most brilliant stage as a creator, he participated in architectural publications of the time like many of his colleagues in the School of Barcelona where he was clearly an example.
His most significant projects are: Belda House (Valldoreix, Barcelona), Castro House (Calvià, Mallorca), the apartment building in La Marina Street (Castelldefels, Barcelona) the office building in the Sant Roc Square (Sabadell), the Hospital Evangélico (Barcelona), and Garreta Mill House (Altafulla, Tarragona).

The second period is characterized by finishing teaching at the School of Architecture when he dedicated his time exclusively to the studio, wherehe began to have a lot of work from his clientele that began to flourish in the country. He stopped working for the public administration after being municipal architect for three years in Valldoreix (Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona). The single family houses gave way to more work in apartment buildings and new residential typologies, while joining the new office and professional employees, increasingly taking center stage.
The most significant projects are: the Housing on Street Déu i Mata (Barcelona), paired homes in Sant Just Desvern and Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona), the residential complexes in Can Déu (Sabadell, Barcelona) and Sa Garbí (Mollet del Vallès, Barcelona).

The last period returned in some way to the initial stimulus, the ability to innovate with the typology and tastes to express something new with the design and facade. The office moved to the current location, and consolidated with ALTRIM, creating the professional society that developed projects and promotions with external partners, so that they could better control requests and the outcome.
The most significant projects are: Dwellings in Les Corts and Taulat street in Barcelona, single family houses in street Pomaret (Barcelona), nursing homes and dwellings in the Eixample district of Barcelona (street Mallorca, Consell de Cent, Castillejos, Sepulveda, Viladomat and Vilamarí), the residential complexes of the Guinardera in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona).
