David Sinclair Architects (DSAA) is based in Cascais, Portugal.
We have extensive experience of design in the tourism and leisure sectors, and we recently completed the Pousada in Lisbon and the extension to Pestana Vintage hotel in Porto. We are working on a second historic hotel in Lisbon which will open in August 2016 and the adaptation of a modern building in Funchal which will open shortly.
After a complex period 2012-2014 following the opening of the Pousada de Cascais (with Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos) we are again expanding our position in various markets.
Several of our older projects continue to win acclaim such as the Pousada do Porto (Palacio do Freixo) the “Residences” at Vilamoura, Vilamoura Hilton and the Monte Santo Resort in Carvoeiro.
A number of projects for Angola and Moçambique which were completed in 2011/2 continue on hold.
We are involved on important master planning projects for the Lisbon area, the Algarve, and abroad.
The site shows a range of our work - both old and new – but obviously our interest is in the future which we hope will bring new dynamics to our practice and our clients.
We aim to provide quality projects which meet the specific needs of our clients, building users and the public in general. We work with a considerable number of Portuguese professionals who provide all engineering and similar input into our projects.
