Practice Ideology

Spaceworkers is an architecture and design studio located in Paredes in northern Portugal, founded by the current creative directors Henrique Marques and Rui Dinis and by its financial director Carla Duarte. The studio based its practice on the exploration and constant search of new paradigms of contemporary architecture in order to achieve a close relation between the form and emotions.
