Collaborating with Sara in the search for a special house in Porto was an exciting process of urban archaeology, research, and curation of the historic houses waiting for a second (or third or seventh) life. It was a very professional and sincere process, based on enormous empathy and understanding with great sensitivity and attention to detail in our mental image of that desired space. That included the typology of the house, but also the character of each street and neighbourhood, our needs, ways of inhabiting space and priorities. Sara’s support was essential for us to find our home and throughout the entire process, from start to finish, from choosing the house to the relationship with owners, agencies, and other stakeholders. Thank you so much, Sarah!
