Practice Ideology

Founded in 2016, located in Vila Meã, Amarante, by Ulisses Costa, dedicated to the development of Architecture Projects, Interior Architecture and Design.

stu.dere is a studio of architecture & design, and a space for multicultural events. The word stu.dere was introduced by the Romans, and it means disciples. But they go further and deeper in its meaning, for them, it means that the disciple strives and puts all its efforts to achieve a goal.

Its mission is to combine quality, innovation and design in the creation of its projects and attract clients by its excellence and know-how, asserting itself as a different brand in the market by providing a service of professionalism, accuracy and competence.

The studio chooses to do a multidisciplinary approach to each challenge it embraces, establishing specific partnerships in various areas to present the client with a global solution.

Here we value the pursuit of different architectural approaches and paradigms to respond to challenges presented by each client, reflecting in the work a posture that questions the surroundings, which take us to a perfect balance between the formal, strategic and sensorial point of view.
