Originally from the South of Spain, Francisco 'Curro' Checa Romero moved to London in 1999 to study Architecture where, following his studies at the University of Greenwich, the Royal College of Art and the Architectural Association he qualified as an Architect. He formed Studio Idealyc during his training and developed this company to now provide architecturally driven construction services. More recently, he established Checa Romero Architects.
Developing an imaginative and inventive style, his projects range from the practical to the poetic, a dichotomy developed during his studies, during travel and throughout professional practice.
Now the father of three young girls, Curro understands the pressure London families face when their brood starts to expand and has designed and built his own home in East London.
