Muriel Altunaga Aguirre

Independent Consultant. Founder, The Flow

Muriel Altunaga has spent the last 20 years working as a designer, workplace strategist, and change manager. She has delivered projects for many organizations, spanning different sectors, geographies, and scales. Over the years she worked in design practices, real estate companies, such as CBRE, and on clients' side. This experience gave her a well-rounded understanding of the building cycle. Muriel is passionate about human-centred design and how the built space shapes people's behaviour. She enjoys providing integrated services and approaches office design holistically. Muriel excels at one of the toughest challenges of workplace change projects -- combining an in-deep understanding of the user's and businesses' needs with technical knowledge of the constraints of the building and the sustainability objectives. As a trained architect, Muriel has led teams to deliver multiple services, from defining strategy for a single intervention to creating global workplace standards, roll-out global transformation, or defining real estate strategies. Muriel Altunaga is a regular speaker in sector-related events, debates, and professional panels.
