Technical base concepts developed by her Portuguese architecture studies & roots merged within a brooder programmatic array in the master taken in Norway, with a concern for ecological and digital contexts, inputs and outputs, combining the potential for social and environmental progress.

Sara is engaged in several projects in different scales and phases, from concept development and feasibility study, to design and further detail.

Experience in interdisciplinary collaboration through the development of larger buildings and complex programs. In addition, she has worked actively in the field of urban development.

Several of the tasks Sara has worked on are projects that cover the transition between land and water and the potential that lies in this meeting. The diploma thesis “Bacalhau network between Portugal and Norway”, ties past and future to the present through the interweaving of an existing factory hall with research, communities and tourism. The new structure exposes and reinforces the traditional processing process of Norwegian cod that has long linked Portugal and Norway.

With a widespread experience in the field of architecture, urbanism and design she is interested in displaying the possibilities of using these fields as a resource to generate culture, dialog and social economy.

She believes in the potential of architecture practice as a vehicle for building a state of wellbeing.
