Who we are

1985 was the year Lisbon saw the creation of SAARANHA&VASCONCELOS, initially geared towards designing decorative and lifestyle pieces.

Thanks to the bold, creative solutions of the team led by the firm’s founding partners, Carmo Aranha and Rosário Tello, the studio received its first architecture and interior design projects, which immediately became its main activity.

Not only has SA&V worked for various companies and institutions, but it has also gained experience in the residential area, where it has created ambiences for clients with varying ages and lifestyles.
Through a lifetime developing projects in urban or rural, public and private residential areas, the new challenge to create “mobile environments” came along with interior design projects for two private yachts: the Maiora 39-metre and the Baglietto 43-metre, presented to the media and to the public at the Monaco Yacht Show 2011.

Today, after 30 years, SA&V brand achieves its exclusivity thanks to the partners’ inspiration, their trips around the world and the discovery of cultures, spaces and artists, while elevating and combining details to create a unique essence in every project.
