Architects from Vendas Novas, Portugal
We are an Atelier de Arquitectura that develops projects in the areas of architecture, planning and design. We seek to rethink the built environment within a social and ecological view, applying the accumulated knowledge concerning the ways to build socially responsible, economically viable and low environmental impact. Our mission is to research, develop and implement energy efficient solutions and environmentally responsible, reintegrating knowledge of traditional architecture in order to cement the ecological awareness and contribute to sustainable development.

Energy efficiency should be a thing to consider when going to buy or build a house, as a well-built house in addition to being more comfortable, can provide significant monthly savings with regard to energy costs with lighting and HVAC. The project should be designed to take advantage of the weather conditions, solar orientation, prevailing winds and vegetation, using construction techniques and materials.
