Founded in 2001, in the city of Porto, Floret provides consultancy and project services. Not by chance, the rehabilitation of the built heritage is one of the reference areas of the work carried out by our studio, constituting itself as the backbone of the identity and the working method model. It assumes architecture as a workshop practice, a mastery that is exercised from academic and technological knowledge and the accumulation of experience on site, very marked by the specificity of the history of architecture and local construction methods. In addition to patrimony, the studio's identity was built, to a large extent, linked to civic participation and the exercise of the profession as a trade, that is, as an artisanal activity. The studio's path was based on private commissions, focusing on small-scale rehabilitation projects. Simultaneously, it carried out several urban studies and surveys on hundreds of buildings, as well as the elaboration of several base documents for the elaboration of strategic documents for the rehabilitation of several blocks in Porto. Currently, the atelier's order book and respective portfolio presents a great diversity, encompassing a set of works outside the scope of urban rehabilitation itself, although, somehow, this remains heavily contaminated by this experience. Now, collective housing, tourism and single-family housing projects are where the studio stands out the most.

The works are always developed in partnership with multidisciplinary teams that are made up of architects, landscape architects, engineers, historians, restorers, among others, who are summoned according to the needs of each project. Project coordination/management is a service that we also provide with the intention of improving the final result of each project.

Since Adriana Floret is an advisor to the Environmental Certification System for LiderA Buildings, the studio can also provide consultancy and support in the certification of the process, focusing on the elaboration of a more sustainable project and, consequently, more environmentally friendly.
