A collective intelligence

More than architecture

Since 1996, S+A’s operations have widened to cover a vast spectrum of services, encompassing not only architecture and urban planning, but also the areas of global design and sustainability. That versatility has become one of the company’s great strengths, allowing it to maintain high levels of quality and innovation, building bridges of trust and creating solid relationships between all stakeholders.


We design spaces that seek to reflect life to perfection

Our buildings are inspired by their surroundings and are shaped by the fundamental principles of the S+A group: technical and conceptual quality; innovation and efficiency; and sustainability and adaptation to the local reality. With this vision and our long-standing experience, we have reached a position of international renown that enables us to provide architectural solutions that are at once functional and commercial, with a specific focus on the needs of our clients.

Urban design

Zoom out, so everything fits in

Designing built environments means effectively combining three factors: art, technology and economics. Our environments respond to changes with designs that address specific functional requirements, to a range of budgets and in often disparate locations. From the concept phase all the way through to execution, we put the emphasis on coming up with a sober, elegant look that is functionally intelligent and always attuned to the client.

Global design

Relating architecture and public space

S+A Concept Design was born of the desire to provide an exclusive service based on two aspects: firstly, the capacity to consider and reflect on the life of spaces at the level of their programmatic content; and secondly, the capacity to relate buildings to one another, making them sensitive to their surroundings, while also granting them a sense of belonging to the public space of which they are an inextricable part.

This focus allows us to provide a truly holistic service that can, to a large extent, be applied across the international market, with a particularly strong uptake in areas relating to culture, content generation and design for museums and exhibitions. The enterprise is led by the distinguished designer Henrique Cayatte, who has considerable experience in design where it intersects with architecture and public space.

The company’s commitment to incorporating design into content-related aspects and harnessing it as a means of orientation for a vaster space is apparent in the singular service that we offer, as well as our ability to tackle a wide range of challenging situations. The decision to adopt this approach underlines S+A’s profile as a firmly established global studio.

Environmental engineering and sustainability

We embrace a greener world

We’ve established strategies that cover all areas of building sustainability, improving overall environmental performance without neglecting quality and the comfort of users. Planning and bioclimatic principles form the basis for these strategies, and sustainable building certification systems such as the LEED or BREEAM are an example of some of the systems used to promote sustainability and to differentiate new, renovated or existing buildings both nationally and internationally. Dynamic simulations are another of the tools which we use and which allow us to assess and establish the most appropriate solutions for matters of energy efficiency, renewable energies, thermal comfort, ventilation and natural lighting.
