Atelier Base was founded in Lisbon in 2008, by the architects Carlos Lemos Sequeira and João Caria Lopes, and since then, the idea of reality-specific Architecture with a bold positive attitude is included in every project. Nowadays João Caria Lopes + Atelier Base's team, keep searching in every project for its specificity along with a global thinking attitude.


Our approach to architecture is inclusive; with social, practical, economical and environmental issues integrated within the process. We consider architecture to be a process of dialogue and we involve experts, consultants, contractors and clients, in every stage of the design process.
