Awarded the "Best Architecture and Hotel Design Firm in Brazil consecutively in 2022 and 2023 (Hotels Magazine), EMDAStudio presents a new approach to the hospitality design, corporate interiors and urban planning. We proposes to no longer be an architecture, design and urbanism office, but a safe point of support for the client.

Furthermore, the studio's focus is always to offer the best solution to its projects users, carefully considering their wishes and demands, without forgetting the most important thing: society and the environment in which they are present.

Designing from the “inside out”, that is, from the object to the urban space, allows us to create a better and more plural world for everyone.

Our studio is more than an architectural atelier. In addition to urban planning, architecture and interior design projects, we deliver product design and development solutions to the client, specification consultancy (F, F & E and O, S & E), hotel assembly management and, through associate consultants, hotel feasibility studies, and procurement management, not to mention the professional consulting services for the development of related business axes.

In line with the issue of the importance of regionality, one of our beliefs, EMDAStudio has strategic partnerships with offices in Porto Alegre/RS, Recife/PE, Sinop/MT, Foz do Iguaçu/PR, Panama City, Panama and Lisbon , Portugal, being able to meet local and international demands in a more assertive and personalized.
