PARQUR was founded in 2012. It is a collective of architects and urban planners from diverse fields of experience (ranging from building renovation to digital fabrication, from sustainable mobility to GIS) extending over a period of more than 12 years of professional practice.
We practice architecture because we believe in its capacity to enrich the environments we inhabit and share. As architects, we develop projects thinking of our clients and partners, their current and future needs, as well as in the particular and general context of each new endeavor.
Collaboration and dialogue are in the center of our practice and creative process. We believe in the strength that derives from the encounter of different visions and knowledge when developing a project of excellence, inclusive, environmentally sensitive, designed to fit to the needs of each client and ultimately resulting in solid pieces of work that can endure the passage of time.
To invest in architecture is not just about choosing a healthier space, tailored to the potential and vision of the future of each person that reaches out to us, but it is also an investment in the cities we inhabit, their patrimony and legacy.
A set of professional and teaching experiences abroad: Brazil, Angola, Finland, Canada, Argentina and the United States, provide us with the confidence, the flexibility and the skills to work for different contexts and diverse cultures.
We are present in Porto, Coimbra and Lisbon.
