CASCA® is a familiar architecture studio founded in 2006, located in Lisboa and owned by Helena Jerónimo (1978), João Queiroz e Lima (1977), and Manuel Queiroz e Lima (1978).

Before working together, Helena, João and Manuel, worked with “LCR (Lisboa)”, “Souto de Moura (Porto)” and “Carlos Manzano (Madrid)”, respectively.

The office’s practice started with industrial buildings but, since then the greatest focus of it’s work has been architectural rehabilitation. The drive of Casca’s architectural approach has always been the pursuit for higher quality of life, believing it should overcome aesthetical consideration. With a deep focus on the relationship with clients, engineering teams and contractors, the studio’s creative proccess is based in a open approach where no idea is wasted, can be explored and integrated in a collective goal. The process is managed in 3D, facilitating visualization, interactive or virtual presentations, discussion with project stakeholders, 3D printing and allowing for BIM management workflow integration. Casca’s work has been presented in architectural and design schools, conferences and the team has been part of academic juries.
