The Brazilian Guilherme Torres was born in Londrina, Brazil, and concluded his studies at UNIFIL University in 1998. In 2001 he founded his first studio; in 2010 he moved with his studio to Sao Paolo. In 2017, Guilherme Torres expanded his studio with an additional mainstay in New York.
The award-winning architect is famous for his innovative residential and commercial architectural projects as well as his interiors and furniture designs. His architecture displays a clear line management and freely floating volumes. He develops them as an overall concept, combines tradition with modernism, tests the limits of materials, and designs new structures and surfaces – even in his furniture, always avoiding monotony and ordinariness.
Torres is a perfectionist. A quote from the French duo Daft Punk underscores this attitude not only on the walls of his studio but also on his skin: Work it harder, Make it better, Do it faster, Makes us stronger.
