Ana Paula Lopes dos Santos. Paula Santos Arquitectura

Ana Paula Lopes dos Santos was born on July 8, 1961, in 1986 she graduated from the Oporto Faculty of Architecture and quickly began her professional career as a collaborator in the architecture offices of Carlos Guimarães and Eduardo Souto Moura. She is the winner of numerous competitions such as the La Casa del Turismo project in S. Pedro de Moel or the project for a Residential building of Medical Sciences Area at University of Coimbra, among others. It should be noted that in 1999 she was awarded the “Grande Oficial da Ordem de Merito” medal by the President of Portugal at the International Exhibition of Expo'98.

The studio Paula Santos Arquitectura has spent over twenty years designing and building numerous projects, public and private commissioning, with a rigorous work method and respecting the fundamental rules of construction. Different programs and typologies, different scales, ephemeral works or object design, every project seeks a formal, functional and constructive coherence. Every project is an opportunity to explore and develop the acquired experience with new perspectives. It is a teamwork and therefore a learning process. Structure, matter, texture, form, function, economy, simplicity, sustainability, aesthetics, it’s all architecture. The office has several published and award-winning works.
