Arquitectos Matos is an architectural office founded by Ricardo Matos (Aveiro,1970; FAULP 1995) and Nuno Matos (Aveiro, 1977; FAULP 2001). Their practice has evolved through works of different programs and scales, based on a systematic research of concept, form and material specific for each project, continually exploring different links between landscape, function, social, cultural and economic context and establishing multidisciplinary and flexible links with other professional and creative areas.
Among several works of single-family dwellings, stands out their renovation and extension of “Quinta dos Floreados”, awarded the Prize for Municipal Heritage Renovation of Montemor-o-Velho, featured in various international publications and selected for an exhibition of Portuguese architecture.
Having taken part in numerous competitions, at present, among the ongoing projects and in addition to the prevalence of work in single-family housing, stand out the master plan for “Quinta do Marinheiro” in Avanca-Estarreja that includes the renovation of “Egas Moniz” House Museum, the “Folgosinha” Adventure Park in Castro Daire and the Centre for Studies “D. Domingos Pinho Brandão” in the Monastery of Arouca.
