CS & Y Architects is a modern, traditional design firm based in Lisbon, Portugal. We specialize in contemporary buildings with classic style, updated for modern comfort. Our experience ranges from single or multi-family residences to museums, religious buildings, culinary, hospitality, garden and even product design across the continents of Europe, North America, and Asia in a plurality of languages. At the heart of all of these, we strive to create places with beauty, timeless style, and modern comfort.
Europe, and Portugal in particular, is experiencing an influx of investment and relocation to areas which offer a simpler life, and great quality of living for a lower cost, with easy connection to many of the world’s greatest locations. Many properties are primed for just this type of investment, with comparatively low purchase and refurbishment costs.
In keeping with the modern world, we are able to tailor our services to individual project and budget needs, from basic conceptual design assistance through full architectural, interior and landscape design. We can work traditionally by visiting and reviewing a project site, or work entirely virtually through communication with our clients and their builders.
We’re uniquely suited to helping those who want an authentic part of their new destination, without giving up the comfort and convenience they’ve grown accustomed to. Whether an apartment in downtown Lisbon, a new house near Cascais, or a small house in an Italian hill town, our broad experience across different locations and markets, combined with our deep knowledge and respect for the history, culture, and individual traditions of each place allows us to to weave these perspectives together to achieve our clients’ visions.
