Margarida was born in Portugal and grew up with the Portuguese and Dutch nationality. When she was sixteen she began –besides her study- to work with a Dutch architect at a small architectural firm in southern Portugal. She worked there until the end of her Bachelor of Architecture. In 2011 she moved to the Netherlands to get her Master’s degree at the TU/e and embraced the Dutch culture. After her studies she worked at Archello and Ila architects. The challenge to create gives her the passion to design throughout a concept. At Team V Margarida is working on Boompjes Rotterdam and various design competitions.
