Office

Having worked together since 1996, Manuel Assunção and Helena Gaspar created TALL AND TALLER in 2003, an architecture, urban planning, design and consultancy practice based in Lisbon, Portugal.

What we do

TALL AND TALLER is dedicated to architecture, interior space planning and urban planning projects, to equipment and furniture design and to consultancy services in all areas of its activity. Our projects are enormously diverse in their typology and size. They range from the small warehouse to the multi thousand square meter industrial unit, from the single family villa to the multi-story apartment building, from the small high-street shop to the regional shopping centre, including also office buildings, schools, hotels and leisure spaces. We design new buildings or refurbishments of existing ones. All the projects we are involved in represent new challenges, new opportunities to learn and explore, to grow.

Where we are

Although based in Lisbon, TALL AND TALLER has long ago leaped across the Portuguese continent’s boundaries. We have projects built or under construction all across the Portuguese territory, including some in the Azores islands. Internationally, the adventure that started cautiously in 2003 in Angola has recently extended to Algeria and Nigeria, with new projects being developed or under construction in all of these markets. Our Clients are individuals, private companies or public entities. Since the creation of TALL AND TALLER we have designed buildings that sum up over 563.500 square meters and we keep working every day to enlarge this number.

We are architects

We are Architects that, more than blindly imposing a vision, we dedicate ourselves to comprehending what our Client says. We are Architects that understand the way the Engineers think. We are Architects that design in such a way that the Contractors can build it. We are Architects aware of the aesthetic, cultural, economic and environmental impact that our projects will have. We are Architects that value transparency, integrity and loyalty in the relationships we establish with Clients, partners and suppliers. We are Architects that know that every project represents a huge investment to our Client, whatever its size, and that he expects to get the best possible return, in quality, in longevity, in profitability.
