I’m Claudia Soares (Bachelor of Architecture and Urbanism, 2010, UFMG, Brazil). Throughout my career, I have nurtured a profound passion for the diverse stages of project creation and presentation. I am particularly drawn to the power of visual communication, which utilizes the 3D realm to facilitate the comprehension of ideas and concepts for everyone. This simplifies the dialogue between designer and client.

My journey in the field led me to specialize in producing high quality visual images. This took me beyond my personal projects, allowing me to collaborate effectively with fellow architects and designers.

I am proficient in a range of software applications, including SketchUp and Enscape, which breathe life into my creative visions, generating realistic and immersive representations of architectural and interior design projects.
I look forward to the opportunity to use my skills and experience on your next project, ensuring successful delivery of solutions that meet your unique needs and requirements.
