ADOFF architects is an architecture studio founded in 2011 by António do Fundo Ferreira based on Porto, where the usual “immaturity” of a young studio combines a strong sense of responsibility with a degree of experimentation, in a constant research focused on the individuality and self-identity of each project. The "synthesis" and the "strength of the idea" are the main objective of our work, where we try to find answers to the constant challenge of maximum expressiveness with minimal means and resources. We face tradition alongside innovation at the convergence of technical solutions which are more appropriate on every particular circumstances. We believe that the relationship between the "material and immaterial", crossing the available methods and means, with the culture and experiences of each place, is a determining factor in the authenticity of our work.
