Sastudio is a Porto based creative studio that operates at the intersection of the architecture realm with social entrepreneurship.
Focusing on impact driven projects with the mindset that we can leverage architecture for problem-solving at wide scales, we search for solutions that often push beyond the practice’s usual challenges.
We acknowledge the responsibility of the profession in reshaping a future where spaces contribute to life betterment, and we believe that through forward-thinking and creativity, design can be a strategic tool to translate needs in smart solutions, fostering sustainable environments and creating societal value.
With a holistic and innovative approach, we are constantly reinventing our process and strive to continuously challenge the most conventional ideas by not settling for the present day solutions, always looking for the added value of each project to its context and all its stakeholders.
