Working in Marbella | Seville | Merida | Florianopolis

ABOUT ME

I was born in Sant’Ana do Livramento, on the border with Uruguay.

My studies began in Porto Alegre and ended in Florianopolis, where I have had my office since 2009. I moved there with the intention of initiating contact with the maritime community, having already planned to be a naval architect. After graduating in 2007, I went to live in Italy for a year, specifically Venice, to study a Master’s Degree in Naval Architecture.

In 2016 another dream came true – going back to the place of the origin of my desire to be an architect, Spain, but now as a professional…

“When I was 13, I was walking along the streets of Barcelona and my world changed … I saw an artist on the pavement, with his back to the street, sitting on a small wooden chair, drawing on a sheet, something that until that moment he did not know what it was. I had a very strange and strong feeling at the same time, I stopped on the pavement and looked towards what was inspiring this long-haired man; It seemed that my world went into slow motion, I felt every ray of sunshine hit my face, the breeze blowing along the street and the curves that shaped that house. I thought, I want to do this! Exactly that! Make shapes! Forms that affect people, that make objects and buildings express feelings and sensations: «In simple terms, it was Gaudí, who through Casa Batlló, showed me clearly what was to become my life’s passion, Architecture».”
