D-A Studio [Domitianus- Architecture, lda] is an architecture firm, founded in 2004, in Lisbon. With more than a decade and a half of existence, D-A Studio operates contractually with public and private entities, developing projects in architecture, conservation and restoration, urbanism, and public space. The work developed by D-A Studio was awarded and distinguished, being frequently published in architecture books and magazines.
This site presents a selection of projects and buildings, which in its set contributed to clarify the conceptual line followed by D-A Studio. Projects of various scales explore multiple programatic itineraries, based on detailed solutions, where the quality of space results from the articulation between architectural culture and the spirit of each place.
D-A Studio considers the influence of the architectural debate promoted in Portugal during the last quarter of the 20th century, as a starting point for the work it carries out. D-A Studio seeks to affirm a humanist, and integrative discourse, in close articulation with the territory and the environment. At D-A Studio each project is explored in rigorous way, considering that the quality of architecture is consummated by the relationship with time.
