Atelier Sérgio Rebelo develops solutions that are directed to the end-user experience and follows sustainable models of construction and production. Based in Porto-Portugal, the Atelier collaborates with other experts and consultants, both locally and internationally. The creative process is dialogical with the client, and intertwines research, design and architecture. Atelier SR aims to contribute to the process of place-making while paying homage to memory and history. The experimentation with materials in architecture translates a deep appreciation for heritage and craftsmanship. Therefore, the integration of tradition with innovation fosters environments where daily routines become sensorial ventures.
