Ana Bretes


Ana Bretes is an Associate who joined our London office in 2021

A registered architect in the United Kingdom, and a member of the Portuguese Association of Architects, Ana has worked in the UK, throughout Europe, and Asia, in multiple sectors including hospitality, education, residential, civics and culture, sports and leisure, and industrial. Her experience is across different project phases – from design concept to design development, planning, tender, construction and detailing.

Ana brings to our team strong creative and technical skills, and an appreciation for design and detail that is complemented by a keen interest in sustainability. In 2020 she co-founded GlassPass, a platform providing an effective tracking, sorting and separation solution that allows construction glass to be circled back into production. Since joining Adamson, she has acted as Environmental Manager and Sustainability Champion in our UK office.

She earned her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Coimbra, in Portugal, and has recently completed a number of courses focusing on sustainability and biophilic design.
