Dash – Architecture and Design is a studio, established in 2013, by Pedro Loureiro and Maribel Araújo, located in Oporto City, Portugal. It has focused ideals in the practice of architecture, interior design, planning and design.
All projects are created in a rigorous work using an approach oriented towards highly creative and pragmatic architectural solutions, where simplicity is allied to conceptual precision in the materialization of each project.
Although recently established, this studio is the inevitable combination of solid years of experience. The studio has already accomplished the conception of projects at different scales and intervention environments. Each challenge is faced as an opportunity to illustrate all the knowledge and mixed experiences acquired through practice.
