Do you have any exciting ideas? drop me a line


Hi, my name is Mayra
I was born and raised in Belo Horizonte, a countryside city in Brazil. In 2009 I got my bachelor in Design from UEMG and then later in 2017 I completed my degree in architecture and urbanism from FUMEC. In 2018 I moved to Sweden to attend a master program in Urbanism Studies at KTH in Stockholm, a city where I found myself right at home. My journey as an architect and designer has been accentuated by a number of priceless learning experiences through different internships and jobs in Brazil, Japan, United States and Sweden. My experience covers a wide range of schemes from urban design, institutional and cultural projects to residential and interior design. In 2019 I started freelancing as an architect and set designer and see this kind of work being perfectly suited to my background and personality. I love to get involved with gigs, festivals, conferences and if you need to renovate your house, office, or balcony, I'm also here for you. I like hands on work and being personally involved with the production of things, and I also value exploring my art skills to make everything more playful and fun. Get in touch for collaborations, commissioned work, or to just exchange ideas.
