Costa Lopes Architects, from Luanda to the world

— Rebrand, logotype


The Challenge

Rebrand the identity of one of the most well-named architecture ateliers in Portugal, referring its creative maturity and ascension in the industry and in the Portuguese and Angola market.

The Creative idea

Abandoning the cocoon of a young brand, Costa Lopes Architects embraces its maturity with a sober and minimal brand logo, reinforcing the prestige of its own name. The brand system was built around the idea of 'focus' and 'grid', that assumes the brand spirit and starts representing the brand.

The Solution

Focus on what is important, which is the creative and surprising output of the talented team of architects that are designing some of the most innovative projects in Africa. Keep the brand minimal and open enough to embrace the variety of architectural innovations the atelier is creating.
