Joao Ornelas, Associate

Joao focusses on residential, mixed-use and modular developments.

Considering himself as a scientist at heart, more than an architect, Joao works tirelessly to create clever and inventive solutions to challenging contexts. Joao revels in the process of creating a building; from conception to construction, delivering the most-optimal and functioning designs as possible.

At weekends Joao is concocting and experimenting with cocktail recipes!


“HKR recognises, not only the need for style but also the need for sincerity. All of our designs are well realised and tailored to the needs of our clients.”
