He graduated from the School of Architecture of the University of Porto in 2000, and holds an MA in the Histories and Theories of Architecture from the Architectural Association (2004). Since his graduation he has worked as an architect in practices in Portugal and the UK. He joined David Chipperfield's practice in 2004 where he took part in the designing of the Museum of Anchorage at the Rasmussen Center in Alaska.

Castelo has been teaching in several architectural schools in Portugal and in the UK. His latest teaching position has been at the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury (since 2008).
His doctorate research, undertaken at the London Consortium, explores the role of independent Portuguese architectural magazines from the 1950s and 1960s in shaping Portuguese built environment, and more broadly, culture, at that time and beyond. Since 2011 he has been a fellow of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology.
