Architects in London

Bruno Gouveia RIBA member is the founder of qR Architects | London. He was born in Lisbon. He graduated in Architecture from Universidade Lusiada, where the tendency and the influence from Architects like Siza Vieira, Souto Moura and one of his teachers, the Architect Manuel Aires Mateus made a huge difference in his design. 


He came to London in 2007 joining a Practice where he refined his skills and absorbed all the mixed culture that is London in these days, preparing him to deal with all nationalities and communities, necessities and backgrounds. 


qR Architects | London was a natural progression and the beginning of an architect's dream but also the response to the high demand of it´s brilliant and unique work. 


Bruno Gouveia established the architectural practice in London. The practice has since undertaken architectural work across a variety of sectors – with particular expertise on high quality residential new houses, residential buildings developments, refurbishments, offices, and retail.

Joana Meira de Carvalho

Joana graduated in 2014 from Universidade Lusíada de Lisboa, in Portugal with a Master’s Degree in Architecture.


Her dream was to see the world so it didn’t take long until she ventured out. Brussels in Belgium was her first stop where she started her career contributing to a wide range of residential and commercial projects. Amazed by the different local customs and needs she soon understood how architecture often plays a crucial role in reflecting a client true aspiration. Diversity in people and homes leads to new perspectives and creative problem solving. Learning about people and their homes became a passion.


Two years later she decided to move to the complete opposite, this time to Malta where she soon started working in one of the most high-end architecture firms you can find in the island. Once again she worked on a plethora of residential and commercial projects. This time focusing on the importance of design and details. 


Her ambition grew even larger and after seeing Bruno's work in London she felt that it was time for the next chapter. She applied, moved to London and started at qR Architects.


London definitely conquered her heart and with all the different cultures around she truly feels home.
