“My house is my refuge, an emotional piece of architecture, not a cold piece of convenience.” –Luis Barragán.


Luis is passionate about creating synergies between the built and natural environment, and balances thoughtful design with sustainable practices. He has experience ranging from small, multi-unit residential and mixed-use projects, to commercial tenant improvements, hospitality, and high-end residential. Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, and having lived in Southern California, the Pacific Northwest, and Florence Italy, he understands the importance of designing spaces that are harmonious with their surroundings. Art and photography are hobbies that accompany him on his adventures and travels.
