Established since 2006 in Sesimbra, the KR studio was created based on the desire to design quality interventions and current design integrated in its surroundings and in the client's life.
Our architectural solutions range from traditional to contemporary architecture, as well as the metamorphosis of both.
 Our activity is set, mainly, for the design and preparation of projects in the field of architecture, however we also provide consultancy in the scope of the activity.
 The KR atelier activity is complemented by the partnerships established in the area of the construction, specialties and certifications. Thus, making available to the client, a complete service from the conception of the idea to its implementation.


Our project philosophy is based on a functionalist organicist concept.
Three inseparable components are always present when designing any project developed by the studio: the Place, the Intervention and the Client.
The Place, because none is the equal to the previous one. Making the integration of the Intervention only.
The Intervention, because it is she that will be going to interconnect the Client with the Place.
The Client, because it is to him that the Intervention will serve and because it is he that will experience the Place and the Intervention.
The constant conciliation of these three components makes each project unique and personalized.

In this way, we guarantee the project conception since his prior study phase to the project of implementation, giving answer to the intentions, necessities and restrictions of the client, advising him during the phases of prior study, project base, project of implementation and construction support.


We are a team with more than 15 years of experience, versatile and fully dedicated to the projects awarded to us.
Our first concern is with the client and his satisfaction. Never forgetting the quality of our projects and services.

We believe that, more than never, the multidisciplinary teams and companies are the most able to cope with the increasingly demanding market.
