Architects is an international multi-disciplinary studio operating within the
field of urbanism, architecture and design.
strong research-based approach, the practice is committed to develop innovative
strategies, design smart solutions, promote positive change and build
remarkable spaces for a better everyday life.
in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic, AB+AC Architects is a partnership and a
shared design journey between Arianna Bavuso, Italian, and Andre Chedid,
American-Lebanese, after more than 10 years of collective working experience at
international award-winning firms such as Aires Mateus Arquitectos (Lisbon),
Gehl Architects (Copenhagen), Superimpose Architecture (Beijing), Vector
Architects (Beijing) and Buro Ole Scheeren (Beijing).
The office has
recently completed a cultural space dedicated to healing through art, movement,
education and food in the historical centre of Lisbon as well as the renovation
of a short-term housing complex.
At AB+AC, each project is guided by the
conviction that architecture has the power to influence the sort of people we
can become or the kind of life we will lead. Therefore, at the core of our
design, lies the pursuit of an architectural beauty that is contagious and
fulfils a whole range of physical, social and emotional needs in order to
stimulate a healthier quality of life.
The practice is primarily based in Lisbon but
embraces the possibility of developing a series of itinerant office stations
around the world starting from the cities of Milan, Beirut and New York, as a
resilient response to our current times.
