Jaime Rouillon chose to live in Costa Rica to develop as professional, after practice and postgraduate studies. In 1994, he founded Jaime Rouillon Architecture, in response to the concern to experiment and explore the issue of rehabilitation of structures in disuse, in attachment to the context of both the site and the urban layout.
Its formation is somewhat hybrid, because it was Costa Rican and Peruvian. After completing his degree studies in architecture, he works for recognized architectural studios in Lima, as Baracco and Soyer. In 1986, he attended the University of Pennsylvania Architecture School for a graduate degree. In 1989, returns to his Peruvian roots with experience in Miami working on international projects and contests with Architectural International. He returns to Costa Rica with the desire to “find a free and spontaneous architecture based on experimentation with different materials.”
Jaime Rouillon tries to mix into a coherent whole, tropical color and depth, formal fragmentation and the lack of traditions within the Costa Rican environment with the memory of his native desert of Peru, its diffuse light without depth, its cultural and physical context, the introverted and solid architecture with the international architecture of postmodernism, his fascination with the sensuality of forms, materials and textures in both interior and exterior, achieving a juxtaposition of feelings of the contemporary society.
