Licensure  Hector and Pamela are both licensed architects in the state of California.  Licensure can be verified through the California Architects Board, responsible for consumer protection and the regulation of licensed architects.  Would you hire an unlicensed contractor?  You shouldn’t hire an unlicensed architect either.

Experience  Hector and Pamela started their firm in 2001.  Together, their combined experience spans 30 years in the profession.  By the way, that doesn’t mean we’re old; it means we’re skilled in what we do.

Vision  We are known for our “livable modern design” philosophy, but it goes beyond a style.    We pursue an individual approach for each project rather than following current trends.  We envision the way you live, from indoor-outdoor living to creating spaces you’d love to spend time in.  We start with the big picture but can take it all the way to the furnishings, if you let us.

Collaboration  A successful project is based on a strong team.  We listen to each client to understand needs, goals and dreams.  We develop design solutions based on those goals, combined with the potential we find on site.  We then bring together a team of trusted professionals (surveyor, engineer, energy consultant, contractor, etc.) to complete the dream.

Passion  Creating a home is personal.  We understand that.  We develop relationships with our clients, working closely together for a year or more.  With a time investment like that, we seek clients that share our passion for design.


We provide services from initial property identification through final move-in.
