In 2003 she established her own firm - Carla Bechelli Arquitectos - based in the city of Buenos Aires in Argentina. The firm is dedicated to the design of a wide variety of architectural works that address different programs and scales: from small uniquely designed boutique hotels to large multifamily housing, offices complex, commercial developments and urban planning.
The firm's main objective is to offer differential and innovative architectonic proposals where design is a fundamental premise. Their projects are characterized by a modern aesthetic, a careful work with the light and space, searching to achieve unprecedented indoor and outdoor spatialities, functional rigor and attention to detail. While all projects developed by the firm share the same search directed towards the construction of their own architectural expression and the development of a methodology of common work, each of them are conceived as a new opportunity for reflection on ways of making architecture, analysis of new typologies, the relationship with the environment and a reading of the ever-changing context surrounding architectural production.
In 2005 the firm was commissioned the design of the finishing phase of the Fortabat museum in Puerto Madero by Rafael Viñoly architects. After this experience, Bechelli became RVAPC’s associate architect for various projects such as Acqua in Punta el Este (2006-2008), Carrasco International Airport in Montevideo (2006-2009), and the award wining urban masterplan of Estacion Artigas and port surrounding area in Montevideo (2010) , all three projects in Uruguay.
In 2011 the firm received the SCA ARQ prize for its project San Isidro Plaza Hotel, representing the best architecture in Argentina of the last five years, and in 2015 won the International Property Awards in the category Architecture multiple residence for its project Las Piedras Villas & Houses.
In 2016, after 25 years of her student first exhibition at the 1991 Venice Architecture Biennale, Bechelli was invited to exhibit again at the 15th Venice International Biennale at Time Space Existance collateral event, showing a constant and committed pursuit to architectonic excellence.
