Joao Ornelas, Associate

Elias has over 20 years of experience in commercial, offices, education, student housing and residential builds.

He has not only designed and delivered projects within the UK but retains an international presence, having worked in the USA, Europe, India and the Middle East.  

Elias was initially drawn to Architecture as it provided him with the opportunity to culminate both pragmatism and creativity into a single profession. He enjoys the challenge of large-scale projects as these offer greater flexibility and a widened sense of design and creativity. 

In his free time, Elias is a family man and enjoys reading and researching the latest trends in architecture. 


“Every day is a new day in Architecture. HKR looks to develop beauty in the benign.”
