In the project I have been a part of optimizing the existing masterplan for the area and was responsible for the design of the Local Center that worked as a welcoming and gathering point for the complex. 09.2012 - Project design of a single family house in Porto, Portugal Placed in the slope of a valley in the north of Portugal, the design embraces the qualities of the site in a straight dialogue with it, and taking advantage of the views. The house is designed upon traditional Portuguese methods, emphasizing the local traditions and culture, and with a touch of the values of Nordic architecture. The project is build according to the local regulations, providing me practical experience in the collaboration and dialogue with the client and the local authorities. 08.2011 - 12.2011 Internship at Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, Copenhagen The work experience at SHL Architects consisted in the development of two residential buildings in Tjuvholmen Island in Oslo, Norway. My main involvement and responsibility deal with the development of the conceptual idea for the two buildings, from the buildings expression and relation with each other and its surroundings, to its interior organization in plan and detail. curriculum vitae Education 2010 - 2012 Master in Architecture at Architecture & Design (A&D), Aalborg University Master Thesis - New Våler Church - evaluated with grade point 12 (7 scale)/ A (ECTS scale) Grade point average through the master degree: 9,9 (7 scale) The master in Architecture at A&D, in Aalborg University is defined by the use of the integrated design process method that combines simultaneously architectural and technical parameters in the same project. The master has special focus in the disciplines of Nordic architecture, tectonics and sustainability. Through my master thesis I have specialized and deepened my skills in the field of Nordic architecture and sustainability. 2009 - 2011 Master in Architecture at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon, Portugal The education at IST combines the traditional architectural education with a strong engineer literacy, providing a large knowledge background that allows me the implementation of both aspects in the projects. 2007 - 2009 Bachelor degree at Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal 2005 - 2007 1. year of the Graduation in Architecture at Universidade Lusíada, Porto, Portugal Attribution of Merit Scholarship for the year 2006 / 2007 My education in architecture started with a more artistic approach in Universidade Lusíada, Porto, which profile can be compared with the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Here, were my creativity and drawing skills first developed. After the first year, I choose to continue the degree in Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon, as it is integrated in one of the best engineering schools in Portugal. 2003 - 2005 1. and 2. year of the Graduation in Physics and applied Mathematics at Porto University, Portugal Digital tools Adobe Illustrator Adobe InDesign Adobe Photoshop AutoCAD Revit Architecture Rhinoceros SketchUp Ecotect | Radiance Be10 BSim Microsoft Office 03
  4. 4. Following this, my works strive to achieve simple and honest forms that have simultaneously an innovative and poetic expression. Personal competencies Integrity & Determination I am a person that has always followed what I like and what I believe, both professionally and in my personal life. My strive to follow what I believe have lead me through the different choices in my education, providing me with a wide knowledge back- ground. This have also lead me successfully through my internship, where my ability to question and reflect upon the chosen solutions have been appreciated, pushing the design to a higher level. Dedicated I see myself as an enthusiastic and passionate person and my dedica- tion leads me to pursue the perfection in every work, in strive to reach the highest architectural level. This have lead me to the achievement of several honours through my education, with special feature to my master thesis which I concluded with a grade point of 12 (7 scale) / A (ECTS scale). Curious mind-set My varied knowledge and cultural background, together with a natu- rally curious mind-set has through my works been a powerful ally in redefining and rethinking new approaches to problems. For instances, my knowledge of mathematics have guided me through my master thesis in pursue for a geometrical optimization of the form, that result in a more simple and elegant expression. Open-minded I am always receptive to new ideas and new challenges that can widen my knowledge and my perspective of the world. This char- acteristic makes me capable to learn fast, improving my skills and creativity continuously. Responsible My passion for architecture provides me with great initiative and com- mitment to my work, investing care and attention in what I do. Personal interests I have a great interest in music, and have been a dedicated violin player in many years, both in sole and in orchestra. I am an active person and have practiced during my youth both ballet and horse riding. Currently I enjoy doing Pilates and going to fitness. I enjoy spending my free time with my Danish boyfriend and my friends. 04 Honors 2013 1. prize for the competition for the Calabar Golf Estate, Calabar Nigeria [ARROW Architects] 2011 3. prize for the Fyrkat Viking Museum [Bifrost] 2011 Finalist project of the Portuguese national competition for Universities - Prémio Secil Universidades 2010 [Mercado do Rato] 2006 Selected project of the year at Universidade Lusiada, Porto [Single Family house in Gerês] Languages Portuguese Mother tongue English Oral and written proficient Spanish Oral intermediate, written elementary Danish Attending Level 4 - Københavns Sprogcenter (CEF - level B1 - intermediate) Professional competencies Sustainability I believe in architecture that is beautiful and functional and simulta- neously environmentally and social responsible. Sustainable archi- tecture should be adapted to the surrounding climate, the ecosystem and nevertheless to the culture, and thereby I employ both current edge-knowledge but also ancient wisdom in order to achieve valu- able sustainable architecture. Within sustainability, I possess knowledge to calculate and document a building energy performance, as the overall energy consumption and the indoor climate conditions. Conceptual design I have a passion to work with conceptual design, transforming the site potential into a strong and solid concept. In my opinion good archi- tecture is initiated through an innovative and unique concept that, at the same time, is deeply rooted in the physical and cultural context of the place. Through my experience I have achieved good skills in the develop- ment of conceptual design. Integrated design Through the fully integration of architectural parameters, such as expression, aesthetics and functionality with engineer parameters, as technology, construction and energy, the integrated design method gives me the capability to solve complex problems easily and more effectively, merging them into a symbiosis to create innovative archi- tecture. Nordic Architecture I appreciate the simple and pure lines of Nordic architecture, with its sense of place and identity. I see architecture as a setting for human life, a bridge between form and content; in strive to create a deeper meaning behind the representative form.

  12. 12. Calabar Golf Estate Sustainable & luxury living in Nigeria The idea behind all the designs spanning from the CICC, the new Calabar Golf Club and the Golf Club Estate, is about immersion in the nature of the Cross River State. We have therefore considered the project carefully and have come up with a design solution that takes the existing environment into consid- eration as the main design driver. We have furthermore devised a strategy for the construction of the different buildings that will be both fast and efficient as well as delivering a product to a high standard of finishes and usage, at a competitive construction cost. The buildings are designed and positioned according to the terrain of the Master plan to minimize the impact of the construction on the existing landscape. The Calabar Golf Estate will be a natural extension of The Cross River state’s high ambition to create a truly unique destination in Nigeria. It’s a new proposition for modern living in Nigeria, benefitting of the natural security and beauty of the Cross River State. The local centre is a place of meeting for the local residents. Its a place to have a match of tennis, a drink or for the kids to find a place where they can meet and play. Located at the main entrance it is a central place for guests to arrive and for the security of the Estate to be located. It is with a small supermar- ket a place where you can buy basic necessities late in the evening. The volumes are located to form a unity with small intimate spaces opening up to the landscape and the valley on the terrace side of the buildings. The Materials are kept robust and enhance the natural feel of the site. 12 1 2 2 3 6 7 8 9 10 4 36 11 7 5 12 Plan of the Local center | scale 1:500

  14. 14. The different housing units have a varied expression but are based on one basic core of components that is similar for all units. Because of the wet season all construction activity suffers and the final quality of the product is born with many problems. We have there- fore made a design that enables to a large extend a local assembly and prefabricated production of elements that will be mounted on site under controlled conditions. This will also permit to have a higher level of built quality. Because of the buildings modular character it will be possible to customize parts of the building and adapt the prize of the building to the buyers wallet and expectations. Rain, being the main issue in Calabar for the buildings long term maintenance, has also been one of the main design drivers in the building design and for the choice of solutions. Simple roof solutions and large overhangs of the main facades both protects the mainstructure and gives added shading to the building. The building is based on a robust design that is adapted to its climate. Solutions and materials are simple and should stand time. A possibil- ity of 2 choices of materials should be presented to the clients. The exteriror of the building is powder coated aluminium in white, dark grey or black. The roof is of corrugated aluminium sheets of Euro- pean quality in the matching colour of the facade. The interior has a choice of wooden heat pressed flooring or large mat tiles. Walls and ceilings are white painted plaster with wooden ceil- ings in common spaces or plywood painted with a white pigmented oil. Exterior vertical or ceiling surfaces are made of African Hardwood or Maritime plywood grade. Terraces are either made of African Hardwood or stone tiles in a rough cut. The simple materiality will enhance the exclusive feeling of the homes.

  16. 16. New Våler Church phenomenology The project is based upon an open competition formulated by the municipality of Våler, in Norway, as a result of the devastating fire which destroyed the original Church in 2009. The concept of the project is based upon the interaction of the church hall and the serving facilities, separated in two buildings. The secondary facilities frame the view from the church hall into the forest, creating a contemplation space prolonged axially from the altar towards the cross, placed in the limits of the forest, and thereby making the nature a part of the sacred space. Reflecting the idea of a dualistic design concept, the church hall and the framing building express a contrast in its form, materiality, textures and tactility. In opposition to the organic and complex shape of the church hall, in a striving for verticality; the framing building appears as a solid foundation, with a simple order, expressed in the clean horizontal lines. The main expression of the church hall is articulated through a self- carrying wood structure inspired in the refined vegetation of the nature of the place. The shell structure rises from the side aisles of the ruin of the old church, embracing it as two protecting leafs. The structure dominates the space of the church hall, figuratively supported by the foundation of the old church. The big glazing area of the room gives openness and almost floating feeling to the church hall. The glazing provides closeness with the sur- rounding nature, as the room appears as being within the nature. The wooden shell with the exposed arches is shaped in pinewood, contributing to a unique sensorial perception of the space, with its smell and golden coloration emphasised by the light provided through the glazed facades. The design of the framing building reflects the conceptual idea of the creation of a transition line, which mentally divides the mundane with the sacred. This transition line is expressed as a wall, which distinctively states the frame of the nature from the church hall, while functionally divides the framing building in two sections, an administration building and a mortuary building. For the framing building the wall acts as a guideline towards the chapel, symbolically leading the mourners towards the light in the end of the tunnel. Before entering the chapel, the mourners cross the stepping stones of the water mirror in the contemplation space, which acts as a purifying transition space. In the framing building the different functions are distributed around patios, bringing the surrounding nature into the facilities. The expression of the chapel appears in opposition to the church hall, expressing simplicity and quietness, giving space to reflections. The chapel has a close relation to the forest outside, brought in through the large window towards east. Section | scale 1:800 16

  20. 20. Cultural Center Offices|Services Access to the metro The intervention site is located in the heart of Lisbon, in the interior of an urban block with spontaneous formation, constituting a zone of ten- sion in the urban fabric of the city. It is an unqualified and irregular space that has been forgotten over time, being at the present its main function a parking lot. The program for this intervention is to create a multifunctional com- plex to promote the area with Housing, Offices and a Cultural Centre, with the aim of recover this space to the city. The proposal pretends to generate an urban site rather than a building, thus exceeding the physical barriers that the limits of the place impose to itself. The project is developed around a central void created from the subtraction of volumes to the built volume, creating a large square with several openings to the outside of the block in order to bring life into the space. The buildings surrounding the central void slopes up in strategic points giving to the space a dynamic character. Its form divides the space into three squares linked together, which have different atmo- spheres according to the different functions supported. In the central plaza the offices are placed on the upper floor, and the services on the ground floor as well as the entrance to the Cultural Centre. This square communicates also with the other two. The square for housing is developed at a higher level thus gaining a character of greater privacy and a quieter atmosphere. This plaza has a direct connection to the outside of the block. In the third square, with access from the main street, the triangular pre-existing building constitutes a vertical element that connects the plaza with the subway tunnel. This square is also surrounded by services and has access to the roof terrace of the Cultural Centre, also accessible from inside the building. Along the connection line between the buildings and the support- ing walls of the pre-existing housing, small patios are placed. These patios claim to be quieter, giving light into the interior of the building and creat- ing a fine line between the pre-existing and the new.

The site is characterised by having two levels - an urban area on the ground level, where services are located, and a green area on top of this. The green level is a prolongation of the green wedges coming in from south, which rise above the urban level all the way to Jyllands- gade. On top of the green platform 15 urban villas are placed. The dwell- ings are distributed according to sun and wind to give optimal solutions for both indoor climate and energy consumption. Taking advantage of the solar gain helps to fulfil the net Zero Energy Building requirement of 22 kWh/m2.year, achieving an energy consumption of 19 kWh/m2.year. The designed building consists of six different apartments - mak- ing them suitable for households of different sizes, economic or social backgrounds. The apartments have access to private outdoor terraces and gardens to the south - the terraces are“carved out”of the building’s shape giving shading to the apartments during hot summer days. The building has a medium heavy construction both in the apartments and on the terraces, which helps balancing the indoor thermal conditions during the day. To give a warmer atmosphere in both the apartments and the area, wood is chosen as a contrast material. The wooden cladding in the exterior and the typology of urban villas differentiates Godsbanea- realet from the surrounding districts, creating an entire new area at the edge of the dense city. The apartments are characterized by having a central core that works as a room divider between the different zones in the apartment, containing the wet functions, as bathroom, toilet and kitchen. The core functions as a furniture element dividing the private zones to the north and the social areas to south. The private zone is placed in a higher level gaining a more intimate character. sub + urb social & environmental sustainability Cross and longitudinal sections | scale 1:500 24 PROJECT TYPE | URBAN & ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PHASE | MAIN PROJECT PROGRAM | NET ZEB & SOCIAL HOUSING LOCATION | AALBORG, DENMARK SIZE | 26 900 M2 ENERGY | ZERO-ENERGY BUILDINGS

  26. 26. The impressive nature of the west coast of Jutland makes this place a unique composition of light and soft colors, where the sea view is never-ending. This peculiar scenario creates a perfect surrounding for a photographer, naturally very sensible to the changes of the light, deep in this place, where the flat landscape reveals a high and dramatic sky. Hidden in the dunes, the site has a close relation with the small stream lying south, which slides softly in the landscape, very visible due the different vegetation growing on top of it, and bringing a different tone to this place. Behind this delicate stream the bunkers appear very visible but never-less integrated in the landscape. From north and east the site in enclosed by two significant dunes, through which can be seen in the distance the light house of Hanstholm, protecting the site from the strong wind and hiding it from the road. An opening between the dunes at south-west reveals the vast and rough sea dissolved in the sky. Almost invisible from the road, the dwelling is revealed by the ap- proach in a narrow path through the dunes. The building is located in a small plateau next the stream, in a position where this different views can be seen all around from the same place. In the point where they are con- nected will appear the center of the house, the core which connects all the spaces, the place to rest and contemplate the view. The remaining functions – bedroom, studio, darkroom, kitchen, and bathroom - are distributed around the central space, defining it and creating the openings to the landscape in between them, framing distinct experiences of the surrounding. This different spaces are contained in pure boxes form where is not possible to see the surrounding landscape, but which allows natural light. Therefore, the‘moment’for contemplate the view is restricted to the main space, creating a consciousness of being observe the nature, and a more acutely sensitivity to it. To let the light and the nature have the main role, the dwelling has a simple form and is made from only one primary material, polished con- crete, chosen due its resistance to the rough conditions and to its clean appearance. The different boxes are made of concrete, with the same finishing inside and outside, and the glass between them is clean, without visible frames, providing a close relation to the nature. To make the dwelling self-sufficient in terms of energy, the roof is designed to support solar panels without break with the clean form of the building and the circular walls work as a rainwater collector, providing water to the different facilities. dwelling in the landscape studio for a photographer solar cellsrainwater collector Longitudinal section | scale 1:100 26
