One of the 20 best emerging architecture practices from around the globe, according to the English magazine Wallpaper* (Architects’ Directory 2016), and one of the 10 most notable design studios in Brazil nowadays, as stated by the North-american online magazine Design Milk.
Against the general tendency of large-scale production and homogenization, we develop unique and exclusive designs. Our creative process claims on rational and functional solutions that explore the essence of shapes in the conception of the object and/or space. We seek to develop a timeless aesthetic, which translates into the disposal of excess and the exploration of key spatial issues such as proportion, light and shadow, materials and textures.
The studio activities include various fields of architecture – residential, commercial, institutional and interior projects – and also the furniture design. In all these spheres, the detail is considered essential, being directly associated to the project design.
The solutions are always inspired by the customer, who gives identity to the project. The highly qualified team ensures a close relationship with the client, who has the possibility to accompany all project stages.
