Samuel Dias Architects
Samuel Dias Architects' work is evidenced by a thorough pursuit for solutions that guarantees spatial quality, comfort for its users and adaptation to the environmental circumstances. Light and materiality are the instruments, which together with form, seek to provide buildings with a resistant presence to the passing of time.
The project's solutions are characterized by its uniqueness, functionality, and preciseness. Each project is exclusive, due to the nature that defines them, an idea that begins with the customers, the requirements and the environments.
The work methodology is structured by efficient project management and permanent technical coordination, to respond positively to the quality requirements, deadlines, and costs. Respectively, every project is developed with social and environmental concerns, looking for sustainable and energy efficient results.
The studio's range of activities are the construction and refurbishment of buildings of several types, such as housing, tourism, or social and cultural facilities, as well as urban design and public spaces, interior architecture and furniture design.
