We are Ana Anahory and Felipa Almeida and together we opened in 2011 an architecture, interior and furniture design studio based in Lisbon. We like to initiate our projects with a multidisciplinary research to then think and draw projects in every possible detail. We enjoy inviting artists, designers and artisans to collaborate with us. We work essentially with wood, brass, marble and ceramics. We want to create cosy atmospheres, genuine, cheerful and personalised projects. We are inspired by tradition but do our best to stay in the present and make the most of what our culture has to offer.
We have been focusing on the interior design of restaurants and hotels and would like to continue working solely on commercial projects and develop our own line of furniture.
