PROMONTORIO is a full-service architecture, planning, landscaping, interior design and graphics team that began in lisbon in 1990 as an experimental studio. it consistently grew into a practice of fifty architects, planners, landscape architects, interior designers and graphic designers. underlying its approach to the urban form, the work of PROMONTORIO has often been identified with the pursuit of a ‘system of robustness’ (i.e. solidity, stability and durability) both in terms of representational meaning and technical research. this in turn, has been implemented and tested in vast construction sites and under challenging time and budget constrains. the design process springs from a dynamic and focused design culture that fosters collaboration above all. 'this cohesive and interactive structure enables us to deal with large and complex projects both in terms of design and program' write the architects. ranging from schools, museums and cultural institutions, to housing, offices, hotels and retail, the firm has accomplished projects worldwide.
