Design unique spaces with a strong concept that provide true and lasting experiences. It was for this purpose that the architects Eduardo L. Maurmann, Elen B. N. Maurmann and Paula Otto begun Arquitetura Nacional in 2010.
Located in the south of Brazil, the team has 12 people. The main focus of the studio is residential buildings, but also commercial interiors and houses.
We believe that the design process is similar to a puzzle. Each project´s different and relevant aspect represents one piece. Our challenge ends the moment we get the perfect fit for all parts, creating an unique, timeless and universal outcome. As architects, we respect the tradition and legacy of good Brazilian architecture. In order to achieve this goal, we respectfully look back at the past and try to put into practice principles that make architecture recognized and admired nowadays, with special attention to new technologies that can help us make ideal projects in accordance with local needs.
As a team we believe that is very important that everyone gets involved in all the projects, especially in in the conceptual phase. The final result is a combination of the talent of different people, with different backgrounds and references, but sharing similar architectural values.
