Carvalho Araújo

José Manuel Carvalho Araújo is the architect responsible for some of the most remarkable works in the Portuguese architectural scene, characterized by elegance, in an attitude of formal restraint, valuing the quality of design, proportions and materials.

His taste for architecture has no antecedents; it happened naturally cultivated by the discipline of Design in his father’s factory. Since then, both disciplines have followed him on his professional path, distinguishing him by his accuracy in mastering scales, systems, programs, strategies … sensitivity. After a year of finishing the architecture course, he won his first prize with the ARPA Office Furniture System, awarded by the Portuguese Design Center. From then on, it received several national and international distinctions both in the area of ​​Architecture and Product Design.

When we met in his workshop in the North of Portugal, in the city of Braga, we already knew his route. As we discovered it, we felt that we had chosen a deep, sympathetic author with an incredible cultural wealth. We feel good. We learned a lot. It is a pleasure to work with the architect Carvalho Araújo.
