FP Architecture’s work focuses primarily on impressive large-scale public projects, as well as private-client work. “In the early 2000s we took part in international and European competitions, and won our first public projects,” says Faidherbe. The firm has handled projects of varying sizes, including residential developments, tertiary buildings (offices, shops, hospitals), sports facilities, and educational and cultural centres, as well as individual houses. The firm consists of two partners, Faidherbe and Pinto Gonçalves, and three other architects. Their ethos, explains Faidherbe, is to create architecture that best meets users’ needs.
