colectivo ODD is an architectural office based in Lisbon, Portugal
Its creation came from the dreams and wishes of their founders to bring back home the professional experience they had acquired in various countries like The Netherlands, England and Brasil.
Starting in 2009, the scope of work of colectivo ODD embraces several scales, from urban planning, to the design of a house, a hotel or a public equipment, through interior design and furniture production.
No matter what size or budget, each project is completed with an open dialog with every player and with the pursuit of closing the gap between the wills of our clients and the vision we defend about architecture.
We search for the best partnerships suited for each project, between designers, constructors and engineers.
Each project gets better when it adapts to its environment and we strongly believe it should be based on the way people live it.
We don’t believe in standard solutions and the result is an inspiring and sustainable design.
