Based in Lisbon, Portugal and founded in 1990 by António Alfarroba, Rui Cardoso and Pedro Ricciardi, the A.As – Arquitectos Associados was the result of the partners colaboration with the architect Gonçalo Byrne, where they started working together. In 1993, Isabel Guardado joins the studio as a partner and in 2006, António Alfarroba leaves the company. Today the studio works with a larger team.
We develop and coordinate projects in the fields of Architecture, Urbanism and Design. The studio has a multidisciplinary practice, reflected by the diversity of our projects. Essentially, we aim to find quality architectural solutions, that satisfy the clients desire and at the same time respect the context where they are applied, both physic and social. With 30 years of experience, the A.As – Arquitectos Associados is able to provide knowledge and excellence to its clients.
We work on all stages inherent to the process of architecture, from the concept to the implementation of the project. Allowing a constant follow up and dialog with the client, from the conception of broad ideas to the thorough construction detailing.
