Campos Costa Architects was found at the end of 2007 as an interdisciplinary research and development practice to inform architectural design. The practice has developed and delivered projects from different scales, from buildings to household furniture. Each of these projects is the result of detailed study of construction processes, systems and materials that validates its cultural and social significance.

(R)innovate Tradition is a clear statement of sustainability that explicitly engages social, cultural and environmental concerns. It seeks to adopt innovative technology, such as eco-materials and low emission technology, as well as passive design principles. It takes the position that promoting resilience at the local scale is key to addressing the global environmental challenges of today. Campos Costa Architects successfully delivered the Lisbon Aquarium extension, the Portuguese Environment Agency Headquarters extension, the Quarteira´s Seafront and Municipal Market. We have also developed several projects in the fields of art and scenography, including the13 longue Chair, in Interni Mutant architecture & Design – Salone del Mobile, Milano.
