The architecture studio (Studio Ideias Verdes) is side by side to the house where both company owners, Denis and Glaucio live and its also where we offer free accommodation.
The main idea is to receive someone from abroad with relevat knowledge of Architecture in order to share some experience, points of view, methodologies and also design concepts, as we see Architecture as an expression of the local culture.

We would like to have some international guest around doing some brainstorm, drawing some ideas, and visiting some of our outdoor projects to gain some knowledge about what we do and how we do.
