STUDIO

We are a studio located in the center of Lisbon, Portugal. Luis Morgado, the owner, is a Portuguese architect.

We are ready to enter the most complex challenges. We master the tools that allow us to optimize the design process. Architecture is a teamwork activity, so we are prepared to gather specific teams to face singular projects.

Luis Morgado
Who am I

My name is Luis Morgado. I graduated from the Faculty of Architecture of Lisbon in 1992. I completed my education with a postgraduate Master in Architectonic Contemporary Culture in 1998 and a Ph.D. in IST (Technical Superior Institute) about architectural wood design in 2016. Meanwhile, I have always been immersed in the architectural practice.

Our values

We are proud of our profession. We believe architecture has a fundamental role in people’s life. Our solutions can improve life quality, and can add value to places, individuals, and communities. Our values are an orientation and a framework. They guide our willingness for architectural excellence and they support the health of our business.

Our tools

Architects must balance theoretical and technical knowledge. The academic research I did was always oriented to be applied in my future work at the office. Thinking skills and action skills are both needed in the studio. The quality we want to offer is based on a set of tools that we master. We believe these can make the difference.
