“People inspire me the most! I undertake projects so that others can be happy, and in doing so, I find fulfillment.”
Rui Maciel is completing his showroom in Porto and has a background in architecture, but his passion for architecture and interior design emerged early on. With nearly 15 years in the field, he has been signing projects under his name since 2016, such as this family home in Barcelos. With a focus on creating a welcoming and familial atmosphere, without betraying his distinctive style, he found the perfect symbiosis among various noble materials to personalize the spaces. From noble woods to wool, from silk to natural stones, everything translates into charming environments without losing functionality.
“When starting a project, there’s a whole range of aspects to consider… from the space where it’s implemented, making the most of its various strengths, but above all, people inspire me the most! I undertake projects so that others can be happy, and in doing so, I find fulfillment.”
