We are all here to contribute our gifts toward something greater than ourselves, and will never be content unless we are.

Moura Architecture is a small architectural design practice founded by Ricardo Moura with the goal of creating connections through intuition, curiosity, understanding, and vision.
I believe that no one can be separated from the space one inhabits and that intentional design, materiality, and beauty of our surroundings have a strong impact on who we are, how we relate to ourselves and others. Architecture is fundamental to connect us to all that surround us.
As an Architect, I am committed to the highest standards of professional excellence and strive to provide my clients with exceptional service. Honesty, integrity, and mutual respect are the foundations for building long-lasting partnerships with clients, team members, and the community.
My professional career began at Michael Maltzan Architecture and continued through Dennis Gibbens Architects, Gensler, Wolcott, and AUX Architecture. Over the years, I have expanded my architectural experience across multiple building typologies, from commercial to multi-family, institutional, and single-family residences.
Holding a Bachelor and Masters of Architecture from Universidade Autonoma de Lisboa, Portugal, I was fortunate to have world-renowned architects Siza Vieira, Souto de Moura, Carrilho da Graca, and Aires Mateus as professors and mentors. To them I owe my passion for a more playful and constructive vision of modern architecture.
