About Change this

Colectivo Warehouse is a experimental collective founded in the beginning of 2013 by two of the current four members Ricardo Morais, Rúben Teodoro, Sebastião de Botton and Malin Mohr. Since it was created, the collective had a total of 14 members, and countless external collaborators. The architectural practice of this group is based on a hands-on approach, enriching the creative design and the building experience. Since the beginning that the collective develop and take part in projects in a collaborative way. Warehouse aims to find a contemporary architectural praxis through experimentation, construction and development of projects in collaboration with other architects, groups, artists, communities and important areas of knowledge for urban design. Their aim is to achieve a more ‘inclusive’ design as a result of a multidisciplinary creativity, experimentation and sharing approach that each member and collaborator provides. Therefore is Warehouse creating its own dynamics grounded in a collective construction practice in search of a distinctive artistic, urban and architectural identity. Warehouse methodology adopts creative processes where design and construction are planned and implemented as a whole in both temporary and permanent projects. Intervention and its social dynamics are an important part of their projects in order to strengthen social and spatial experiences in the emerging urban landscape. From the city scale to urban furniture warehouse also develop mediation processes towards participative architecture within social and cultural impact, highlighting projects like Cozinha Comunitária das Terras da Costa (collaboration with ateliermob) winner of the award Archdaily BOTY 2016 – Public Architecture.
