Laura Gayo (Madrid 1982) graduated as an architect from the ETSAM (Escuela técnica superior de arquitectura de Madrid) in 2009.
She has always been interested in the history of architecture. In 2004 she spent a year at the Architecture University of Florence (Università degli Studi di Firenze) to develop her training in the field of interventions in historic buildings and later she went on to obtain her specialisation in the preservation and renovation of architectural heritage from ETSAM.
She completed her education by studying landscaping and botany, obtaining a Postgraduate Certificate in botanical, historical, and singular gardens from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid.
After working in different architectural studios in Madrid, she decided to return to the land of her childhood, Mallorca, where she worked for several years for Sergi Bastidas (Rafael Manzano prize for New Traditional Architecture 2021). From him, she learned to love the traditional architecture of the island and had the chance to lead projects such as the Rialto Living, (restoration of an 18th-century palace in Palma), emblematic possessiós (rural country estates), boutique hotels and villas.
In 2018 she established her own studio where she heads up her projects one by one with absolute dedication.
