Born and raised in Lisbon, Vera took an early interest in science and
design. After completing a MSc in Civil Engineering, she worked for
consultancy companies in Sao Paulo, Stockholm and London and was invloved in several large infrastructure projects. With a keen eye for design, she wanted to combine her passion for architecture and interiors with her experience in construction and project management. Being inspired by nature and influenced by the places where she has lived, her design mixes urbanism with natural forms, expressing her passion for minimalism and sustainability. Vera believes that functionality and elegance can work together to create spaces that positively impact our mood and wellbeing. After graduating Vera worked for BDP www.bdp.com
