He studied architecture at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. Once he finished his graduate studies he knew he needed to go deeper into the spaces, because at the university the projects were done to satisfy a function, without achieving the ultimate goal; to create full environments that take into account everything: materials, lighting and furniture, something that has always thrilled him. He then signed up for the Interior Design diploma course at the same university, and that is where he realized that interior design was also his passion. His vast experience in architecture and interior design has led him to thoroughly grow professionally. He has also been fortunate enough to collaborate in important projects such as the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya, now the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya in Mexico’s Caribbean Coast as a member of architect Gilberto Borja’s team at Baia Group. Years later, as a partner of Muro Rojo Arquitectura, he participated in the development of many outstanding projects that have received important awards such as the Hotel Brick in Mexico City, restaurant Cumpanio in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato and Hotel Bö in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, just to mention a few. Today he is the director of his own firm: Germán Velasco Arquitectos, specialized in hotels, restaurants and residential architecture and interior design projects. For Germán and his team, each project is a new challenge in which they rewrite the rules by being: different, proposing and sometimes even irreverent.
