Hyphen appoints first associates in Latin America


We are pleased to announce the appointment of our first two associates in our Latin American team, Sebastián Ravinet and Felipe Barrera, effective from 1 June 2022.

Sebastián began his career at Hyphen in 2017 and was promoted to senior architect in 2021. Since then he has been leading teams in our retail and workplace sectors, with a track-record of more than 10 anchor store projects in Chile and over 25 luxury projects throughout Latin America. Sebastian’s strong architectural skills, analytical decision making and communication capabilities, have positioned him as a leader in interior design, and technical and quality referral.

Felipe joined Hyphen in 2021 as a senior architect. His enthusiasm, great communication skills and software management abilities have positioned him rapidly in front of clients, managing projects and coordinating a hand-picked team of architectural Revit specialists. Felipe has also led the implementation of the special projects team, a dedicated team for supporting our European offices in the data centre sector. He is currently managing three hyperscale data centre projects in the Latin American region, which sets a milestone in our role as a major player in the sector.

Eva Diego, Hyphen Director says:  “Opening up the market in Latin America has been one of the most memorable moments of my career. We first started operations in 2013 and became fully established in 2017 by opening our first Latin American office in Santiago. Since then, it has been really nice to see the team grow with the office.

“We are very happy to appoint Sebastián and Felipe as associates. They will continue to play key roles in our ambitious plans to extend our network of offices throughout Latin America. I hope you will join me in congratulating them as they embark on an exciting new chapter in their careers”

Matías Menichetti, our Office Head in Santiago adds, “Working with Sebastián and Felipe and seeing them develop at Hyphen has been very rewarding. Sebastián has been with our team since year one and has been key to our expansion in luxury retail in the Latin American region. He stands out for his excellent teamwork and technical capabilities, by leading a team of architects that continues to grow.

“Felipe has also made a valuable contribution to the team since joining during the pandemic. Through his expertise in BIM, collaboration with our European teams and ability to lead on hyperscale data projects, he has shown excellent leadership skills.

“We are delighted to appoint Sebastián and Felipe as associates and look forward to seeing how they develop in their new roles.”
