Orlando’s passion in design and architecture was initiated when he enrolled in the TAFE Diploma of Architectural Building Design and Drafting in 2002. It wasn’t until he entered the workforce, however, as an architectural draftsperson, that he set himself the goal of becoming an architect. He promptly decided with his newly acquired enthusiasm in design and architecture that he wanted to further his architectural studies and complete a Master of Architecture Degree at Curtin University.

After graduating from Curtin University, he continued to work and learn in a professional environment where he went onto to register with the Architects Board of WA in 2011.

Once registered, Orlando went onto become the responsible architect for Machin Designs to enable them to operate as a licensed architectural practice in WA, under his registration. It was at Machin Designs that he further developed his skills and benefitted from exposure to the Corporate + Commercial, Industrial, Educational, Health + Wellness and Hospitality sectors.

Orlando’s expansive involvement in the Building and Design Industry has also seen him take on the duty as the Superintendent to many projects of significance. His most impressive superintendent role was for Award Winning Architect and Developer Barry Baltinas of Baltinas Architecture for the side-by-side Iconic 6-Storey, High-End Luxury Homes on Mount Street in West Perth. (WINNER 2018 Master Builders Housing Excellence Awards, built by Mercedes Constructions)
