Once you’ve been out in the world, fighting or negotiating your way through things, amongst a cacophony of voices and interests, you want to come home and switch off. You want to come home, and feel like the protagonist – not some secondary actor.
Carefully detailed interiors can give you that – a soothing, nearly blank canvas, which you paint with your own personality and mood.
Architect, Quality Systems Controller.
Founder and Principal of A OFICINA - Design e Arquitetura, E.I., a micro design and architecture studio based in Maputo that executes projects and idea-things.
I practice at the intersection between meaning, aesthetics and commerce.
As an external examiner of university student work, I look to architecture as an act of translation.
I am currently furthering my knowledge in M&E and Quality Management in order to integrate multidisciplinary teams and benefit others through transfer of skills learnt in the building industry.
