Rita Andringa

Broad, rigorous and receptive

DIRECTOR
Lisboa, 1977
Rita Andringa was born in Lisbon but her ancestors come from different places in Europe which probably explains, why she feels so comfortable with diversity and plurality. She graduated from IADE in Lisbon as an Interior Designer in 1999, and since then has collaborated with several Design and Architecture studios in Lisbon. A very important part of her professional journey was spent working with Vera Iachia, a portuguese Interior Designer renowned for her interiors of several houses in Comporta, one of the best kept ecosystems in Portugal. For the past few years she has been working with Louis-Albert de Broglie, known as Le Prince Jardinier and the owner of the French institution DEYROLLE. Together they have been thinking and designing sustainable ecosystems and beautiful gardens. Rita has always been driven towards beautiful things and has always been passionate about Art, History, Gardens and Gastronomy.

“To leverage, in that way, the best of the other. That’s what I want. I want my environments to enable the other to be able to be who they are in an evolutionary process in full manifestation.”
