SAMI-arquitectos

Setubal, Portugal

SAMI-arquitectos was established in 2005 by Inês Vieira da Silva and Miguel Vieira. Its projects are informed by a sensitive approach to place and a careful reading of history and tradition in a quiet but eloquent dialogue between space, material, and place. The practice has won recognition from architectural critics and numerous national and international awards, among them the BSI Swiss Architectural Award 2016 in which they were finalists, the European Award Architectural Heritage AADIPA (2015), the X BIAU and IX BIAU Award (2014, 2016), the Tektónica/OA National Architecture Prize (2009), and second prize for the National Prize of Architecture in Wood 2011 Award.
