The drive for designing each building, interior, landscape, furniture, fixture, and graphic goes far beyond how things look, always focusing first and foremost on the way people feel in these spaces.

But this can’t be achieved without its people, whom it believes are the key to its success, proven by long-term relationships within the team, and the recognition from clients as a reliable partner. The team are the main influencers of the brand, as well as those who develop the solutions, products and services. Inês said, “To provide top expertise and consistently deliver excellent results, we strive for a balance between smart work and hard work. “Our high-quality standards are based on efficient results-oriented people with a can-do attitude, who only find solace when providing our clients with the best possible solutions. Ensuring absolute client satisfaction is essential to our business continuity and growth.” GAVINHO’s location of Portugal also plays a big part in its success and growth. With a singular architectural tradition and one of the most established architecture universities in the world, Portugal stands out naturally. For many years, it was hidden from the world, and in recent years, with the help of national and international entrepreneurs, the country has hit the map again. While GAVINHO saw its challenges in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic within the last two years, it used this difficult time to focus on how it surpassed them. And Portugal is at the top of the most vaccinated countries in the world, but more than that, the industry kept working throughout the pandemic. This made the market grow and many industries were able to use that period to renovate themselves, to develop new approaches and new products. Inês tells us, “It’s amazing what we feel now in the market. The dynamic is very strong, and in two years, we will see results from it translated into new luxury hotels, condominiums, and other innovative and iconic projects.” 2021 was a big year for GAVINHO, following its rebrand to better express its work and vision to clients, in addition to the brand expanding into a group of three companies. GAVINHO Architecture & Interiors, GAVINHO Build, and GAVINHO Properties are now the main three brands of the group, but more news is to come soon as it is preparing to launch a furniture brand this year. The company also has some amazing projects to be launched soon in the residential properties market, and also its first hotel.
