Assessing your needs and options before the design phase is vital if you want your Project to be delivered on time and on budget. It’s a bit like getting the diagnosis of your doctor, before deciding on the adequate treatment.
Deciding on and making changes to the exact requirements of your project needs to be done before starting the design phase. Changing your ideas about what needs to be built before starting the design phase is both easy and free. Once the architect starts designing, changing the basic parameters becomes gradually more difficult and more expensive. Once the build has started, it is prohibitive.
In order to assess the feasibility of your dreams and their financial implications, we have developed our Vision and Strategy Review. By means of this extensive report we help you fully understand your requirements plus the constraints and potential roadblocks of the project. Because we know from many years of experience: spending some extra time planning things carefully, always pays off.
Our Vision and Strategy Review includes an introductory meeting (or Skype conference if you’re not in the country), a visit to the site and an extensive report, outlining your requirements in terms of space and quality, analysing planning restrictions that apply in your area, and suggesting design strategies. It also includes a detailed conceptual budget.

We were delighted to work with Co Govers and Maria Matamala in all phases of the Project, from planning to execution. Being based in Scandinavia much of the communication was done long distance with English as the working language. The professionalism and level of (friendly) service of ZEST was and is exceptional. On our behalf they dealt with all parties involved in realizing the Project, which included many bespoke and complex solutions. We have warmly recommended ZEST architecture to our friends and would not hesitate to do so to others.
We were very happy to let ZEST design our house in Barcelona. Co and her team are very professional and dedicated. They understood our requirements and gave us their professional advice. From the architectural work to the entire interior design of the house and the construction supervision, Co and her team provided us with top service. We are very satisfied!
Creating the house of our imagination on a Spanish mountain was never going to be easy. Off-grid and remote, in an area of incredible beauty, at time nature herself seemed to conspire against us, not to mention the planners and builders. Co guided us through the many obstacles, and turned a once abondoned shell into a home, combining the latest in up-to-date living with a sense of history and place and the indefinable style of a master of her craft.
We were delighted to be working with Co Govers and her team at ZEST architecture on the redevelopment of our estate in Barcelona Province. From the start we were impressed by the team's vision, knowledge, responsiveness and attention to detail. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending ZEST architecture.
In a village on the Costa Brava our apartment with sea view was in need of a thorough renovation. In order to carry out these drastic works, we chose Zest Architecture. From Belgium we could follow the evolution of the renovation. A fine collaboration with Co and her team resulted in a great result and this within the set term. Highly recommended !!!
Co and her team are an absolute pleasure to work with. From the outset, we've felt in very capable hands, despite being on the other side of the world to the ZEST offices and our project site. They are attentive, professional, patient and very talented. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Co and the team at Zest are exceptional. Importantly for me they spent time getting to know us, in order to understand our requirements. As a result they have designed an exceptionally beautiful home for my husband and I located in The Gavarres. They have held our hand every step of the way, and have filled us with confidence. I know our finished home will be everything we've dreamed of
