Founded in 2007 by Alessandro Pepe, the office has built a strong reputation and expertise as a creative architecture practice in Porto.
Architecture has a strategic character in society. Often unconsciously, it influences our conduct and actions, our moods and defines our cultural references. As such it requires architects to introduce ideology into design. It must transmit a sensation of serenity and stillness, as we consider this to be an essential condition to a meaningful design.
Working on a great variety of projects and scales, we deeply value a wholehearted commitment to architecture and its design process. We believe a good project lies on a comprehensive balance between functional and economical necessities and the pursuit of simplicity and pertinence with a significant focus on materials and details.
Porto and its surroundings constitute an incredible territory for architectural interventions, in the rehabilitation and embellishment of architectural heritage through a contemporary addition as well as projecting new constructions. The diversity of our clients, from individual house owners to private investors or public institutions, leads us to constantly reinvent a way to develop a relevant architecture.
