Since the establishing of the practice in 2006, Gonçalo Lencastre arquitectos have earned successfully engaged with all dimensions of architectural and urban design rather than focusing on narrow specialisms. They are currently involved in a wide range of projects at different scales, ranging from urban planning and regeneration to public buildings, schools and housing in South East Asia (Timor-Leste, Myanmar, Indonesia and Cambodia).

The practice is committed to a research-based approach and aspires to create an architecture that is contemporary and rooted in its context, at all scales. The founder, Gonçalo Lencastre is closely involved in strategic design decisions on all projects and committed to cultivating a strong working relationship with clients and stakeholders in the development of all projects.
