Filipe Pina. Filipe pina arquitectura

Filipe pina arquitectura is an architectural studio created by Filipe Pina in 2015, located in Guarda, in the interior of Portugal.
Their previous collaborations, both national and international, together with the different partnerships they initiated, allow them to undertake endeavours and challenges, regardless of their size and scale.

Their aim is to work on the borderline of the vernacular and the contemporary, trying to reflect local realities and experiencing people's daily lives. Turning these experiences into projects is the result of a constant intellectual search and a close relationship with their clients. Ultimately, the main result of his work is the execution of economical and sustainable buildings with the highest possible quality standards.

In 2014, with the JA House* project, he was shortlisted for DomusWeb's "Best of Architecture".
