Born in a Portuguese African colony, Emanuel developed his academia in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Barcelona, designing and planning projects in these many different places.


This has made Emanuel a citizen, a space philosopher and a design traduttore around the world.


Emanuel has a unique approach regarding space design. He interprets and guides, structured on his anthropological methodology in profiling. He delivers based on his source of his inspiration - The Client – by the legitimacy to the right of the Different.
