Luis was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Architecture at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in 1994.
Luis has always been passionate about an outdoor lifestyle and the ocean. One of his dreams was to live by the beach, so when an opportunity to move to California presented itself, he moved his young, growing family to Los Angeles in March of 1997.
In early 2010, after a successful 13 years as an architect for a widely recognized Los Angeles based design firm, Luis decided to focus on his own professional practice. He aims to achieve design excellence through efficiency, innovation, and responsible use of materials and forms, always motivated by his Colombian roots and ‘can do’ attitude. Today, Luis continues pursuing his goal to orchestrate architectural design solutions that are integral, thoughtful, honest, and responsive to the environment and to his clients’ true needs and desires.
Luis has been doing Architectural Design in the Los Angeles area for over 20 years. During his free time, he enjoys music and riding his bike with his son Andrés.
