Natalie Galland B.Bdg.A, B.Arch.
Architect + Project Manager

Most of my working experience has taken place in the UK where I have worked for various Architectural practices based in London. I have worked for a diversified group of companies specialising in project management of high-end retail units such as Burberry and Ferragamo as well as theatre and art gallery design for Terry Pawson Architects. I have also worked on numerous projects in the Algarve over the last couple of years.


I specialise in project management from small-scale new builds and refurbishments to multi-million Euro schemes over 3000 m². My aim is to provide great working relationships with my clients, to deliver projects on time and as far as possible, on budget. Obtaining business through clients that have recommended us would be my ultimate goal.






Paula Santos Ribeiro
Architect + CEO of Arquitectura by Paula Ribeiro

Most of my architectural experience is in residential developments, where I have great technical ability and real creative flair for architectural and interior design. I have also worked in medium and large scale projects such as commercial, institutional, healthcare and touristic projects during my career.

I am capable of developing the architectural design from the given design concept through to final design documentation. I have experience of working with high caliber practices and I have the advantage and the ability to coordinate with clients and consultants.
