Design has been a part of Renato’s story from an early age. At 12 years old, he began a Communications Design course at the Panamerican School, in his hometown, São Paulo. He believes his passion for arts and design is in his genes, since his two aunts loved painting and even gave him painting lessons.
Another passion that led Renato in his journey as a designer was sports. Basketball and surfing taught him important lessons that he applies in life and work to this day. Watching his oldest friends practicing, he learned not only the best moves on the court and in the sea, but also the importance of learning from others.
As an architect, Renato believes building quality relationships is the key to better understand a client’s real need. To him, listening, observing and talking to different people are excellent ways to keep acquiring more knowledge.
