Bold and forward-thinking, experimental by nature, Ines began her career during her architectural studies. After living and working in Porto for twenty years, she found a new professional challenge in London. Over the past four years she has worked there for different design studios, refining and developing her design skills in interior design, namely contemporary art, furniture design, as well as perspective collaboration with wealthy individuals. She was awarded the prize “Respect for Architecture” by the Association of Architects of Northern Portugal for her commercial architecture projects. In her concepts, she considers the quality of life as a basic parameter. She believes in a pluralistic vision in design that incorporates all cultural perspectives and translates into contemporary design.
