The Studio

Arraiolos & Associados is a Lisbon-based architectural studio, founded on extensive experience developed over the past years in large and small-scale projects.

The studio deals with different types of programs - from urban design to renovations and new constructions - always focused on a precise understanding of the context and looking for specific answers for each problem.

The development of the projects is done in an integrated manner, in close collaboration with the engineering team and other consultants involved. Always attending to the client needs and looking for both spatial and construction quality.

We believe that architecture must last in time. While contemporary, it is always part of the past and will be part of the future. Intelligible continuity that allows us to establish connections and understanding the layers of culture and time.
