When it comes to exceptional architectural vision and creative design, the experts at RDLM Architecture continue to make a significant impact in the Portuguese marketplace. Architect Eduardo Lacerda Machado founded the company in the 1950s. In 1976 he was joined in the business by his son, Rui when the company expanded the reach of their exceptional work. Over 30 years later, Eduardo’s grandson Diogo Lacerda Machado proudly followed in his grandfather and father’s footsteps and became a firm member. The company is based in Espinho, Portugal, has a presence in Lisbon, a partner in Greece, and will soon be working in Mozambique and Angola.
Diogo has been the Executive Director since 2014 and leads the RDLM team of young Associate Architects recruited from the best Portuguese architecture colleges. He graduated from Lusiada University in Porto in 2006. He went on to work at Navarra Francisco Mangado in Pamplona and Madrid, where he participated as a collaborator and a coordinator in several internationally acclaimed projects. His profile grew when, with its co-creator Estudio 41, he was involved in creating cultural centers in Nova Friburgo and Cabo Frio in Brazil and worked on the Espinho Railway channel project ReCaFe with Francisco Mangado, currently under construction. He has also consulted on architectural projects in Mozambique and Angola, winning several awards.
RDLM has developed an impressive reputation for maintaining the highest quality standards and exceptional customer service. The multi-faceted team believes in close client collaboration through every step of the design and construction process with the goal of building something great together. This process begins with the meet and draft stage, where the architects liaise with the client to develop the pre-schematic design. They then take the project through the design and execution stages, including construction and documentation, closely coordinating all work undertaken. Their expertise spans architecture, planning, structural engineering, interior design, sustainable design, building restoration, construction services, and work supervision. A complete package designed to offer clients an efficient, stress-free experience and an exceptional finished product.
These are the reasons why Luxury Lifestyle Awards has chosen RDLM Architecture as a triple award-winner across three categories. The categories are Best Luxury Architect Studio in Portugal 2021, and then in association with Onda Verde, Best Luxury Architecture Residential Development in Portugal 2021 for the Passaredo Building and Best Luxury Architecture Residential Development in Portugal 2022 for the Marnosso Building.
In association with Onda Verde, the company has been notably recognized for its work on two residential developments in Espinho, Portugal. The striking Passaredo building comprises 15 apartments and is constructed using two shades of exposed concrete. Glass, marble, and flat tile finishes in neutral shades complete the streamlined contemporary look. An iconic development set in a unique city location.
The Marnosso building is home to 10 apartments. The modernist architecture of the 70s inspired its design, and it is finished with concrete, glass and modernist tiles. The creative concept was to maintain the historic feel of the city within the building using these tiles, bringing together a contemporary interior where the spaces flow perfectly for a stylish development that offers maximum functionality for modern living.
Working across a wide selection of different enterprises in sectors including hospitality, residential, and public architecture, RDLM is committed to delivering its vision to design and construct the architecture that shapes the future. Making them a worthy triple award winner in this highly competitive marketplace.
