We are much more than an architecture studio in Castellón; we are a team of people.
Professionals who drink from different disciplines, who are passionate about what they do and give the best of themselves every day.
As CEL-RAS we are, an illusion in constant evolution, aspiring to always give back more than what was received.
Juan Miguel Gil
Architect – Project Director
CEL-RAS has its roots in the vision of Juan Miguel when in 2006 he imagined a name that, with a Mediterranean character, made reference to the place that architecture occupies between heaven and earth. Founding partner, Juan Miguel coordinates the areas of Architecture and Urbanism so that the projects have an impeccable result. He stands out for his creativity and an almost insatiable intellectual restlessness, from which his deep knowledge of the roots of architecture emanates. With a holistic vision, capable of embracing sociological, technical and cultural aspects, Juan Miguel manages to thrill, giving body and soul to a pure architecture and at the service of society.
José Luis Doménech
José Luis is a founding partner of the company. His innate leadership capacity is an indispensable bulwark in any project: for the serenity and confidence that it transmits to our clients, for how it inspires enthusiasm in each member of the team for its work, and for the technical solvency that it contributes in each of its phases. . Technical architect by vocation, he has developed extensive experience in project coordination, structural calculation and interior design. The constant training and sensitivity with which he interprets his profession make José Luis capable of perfectly engaging the mechanisms that lead to the success of projects.

Víctor, one of the three founding partners, is a charismatic, cautious and transparent person, capable of getting the best out of each member of CEL-RAS in the area of architecture that he coordinates. Live architecture with passion, working every day to achieve excellence in creating spaces that allow people to be happy. His roots linked to traditional construction, his technical training as an Architect and Quantity Surveyor, his vocation for continuous improvement and the dominant notes of an honest and generous character, are felt and resonated when Victor helps his clients to materialize their dreams; to shape your illusions.
Director of operations
After several years linked to CEL-RAS as a professor and researcher at the university, Alejandro fully joined the CEL-RAS project in 2017, becoming a partner and head of the operations area.
His ten years of dedication as a researcher in the field of civil structures make Alejandro a reference when it comes to conceiving and calculating structures; skeletons of the architecture projected by CEL-RAS.
Obsessed with efficiency, effectiveness and process improvement, Alejandro is also in charge of fostering positive dynamics and virtuous circles within the team that lead to the success of projects.
Jordi is an Industrial Engineer specialized in the design of facilities, energy efficiency and renewable energies. He coordinates and supervises the Engineering area at CEL-RAS, being, therefore, the maker that the mechanical part of the architecture works perfectly. As a MEP engineer (mechanical, electrical and hydrosanitary) he works closely with the team of BIM-managers in the different phases of each project. Thanks to Jordi’s work, it is guaranteed that the housing facilities provide users with the highest standards of comfort and quality of life.
Communication and photography
Journalist, photographer and expert in audiovisual communication, Paula is responsible for managing all communication, her work being indispensable for the moving illusion that is CEL-RAS to advance. We want to generate emotions, reach those who have not yet been able to hear the voice of our architecture. Everything is possible thanks to the talent of Paula who, thanks to her external collaboration, achieves through an image or a text impregnated with her freshness and honesty, to synthesize the vision of CEL-RAS, which is, simply, to make the world a place a little better.
Architect – Interior Designer
Trini has a passion for architecture and this is the discipline she uses to express herself and shape her artistic sensibility. An architect with international experience and specialized in interior design, she understands architecture as a form of total expression, an agglutination of other artistic disciplines such as painting, sculpture and music. This is how Trini captures the necessary essence of each project and translates it by creating spaces in which all the parts combine to form a whole in perfect harmony and harmony.
Civil engineer – Passivhaus designer
Guillem has high technical knowledge of construction both in the field of construction and in civil works. He is a Technical Architect and Public Works Engineer and has an analytical capacity that makes him an indispensable piece in CEL-RAS when proposing technical solutions in the development of projects. Accredited by the German Passivhaus Institut, it provides CEL-RAS with the knowledge necessary for the design of energy-efficient buildings that meet the most rigorous standards of quality and comfort.
María José Melguizo
Architect – BIM manager
An architect with the soul of a philosopher, María José overflows with passion for what she does and lives her profession from generosity and dedication to a job well done in architecture and interior design projects. Thanks to her sensitivity, María José has the virtue of capturing people’s needs and their illusions like no one else. It also completes the CEL-RAS team of BIM-managers, which allows projects to achieve the required degree of excellence.
Methodical and meticulous, Marcos has a weakness for the seemingly insignificant but, in reality, of utmost importance in the final project.
After a first experience in Madrid in another architecture studio, Marcos brings his taste for order and his concern for details in the development of projects, in addition to his professionalism and ability to use BIM.
