“We own a traditionally designed villa in Vale do Lobo, which we currently use as a holiday home. We wanted to modernise the villa with a more contemporary look without losing the original design’s essence. This is where Anabela and CORE came in.”

LEWIS & JOY AFFLECK

“Anabela developed our private home and all our shops. We felt very well-taken-care-of. She has a huge understanding and great ideas, which she puts perfectly into praxis. We look forward to working with Anabela in our future endeavours.”

HANS WERENER SCHERER

“I was searching for an architect specialised in Feng Shui and sustainable homes in Portugal. Incredibly, I found Anabela in our very own neighbourhood and am now able to live in the most genial house in the Algarve thanks to her professionalism and commitment.”

MARLEN SCHMID

“We had the pleasure of benefitting from Anabela’s great ability to meet both the challenges of modern architecture with the realities of the Portuguese construction sector. She also managed to create a respectful, intercultural, and sensitive working atmosphere at the building site.”

DIRK JUNG

“In 2013, I bought an old summerhouse in Carvoeiro. CORE Architects remodelled this old house and managed to make it our dream house in the Algarve.”

MATTHIAS WALTERT

“What a lucky coincidence that we found “Core Architects”. Despite various offers, it quickly became clear to us that there is no better choice of architect. Of course, it is convenient that the CEO, Anabela Macieira, speaks fluent and accent-free German, which simplifies communications tremendously.”
