Good design is functional, beautiful, rational, and socially conscious. We design projects to enhance people's lives. There is great value to coming home and going to work in tranquil environments, void of information overload. Our clients are part of the creative process and an integral member of the design team, which allows our work to go beyond elegant, functional and beautiful, to become meaningful.

Ernesto was born in Cuba and received a degree in Architecture from Cornell University in 1984, following which he moved to Washington, DC, and became a registered architect. Since then, he has contributed to the changing skyline of DC and worked on projects in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Europe. His work has been widely published and received numerous awards.

We developed the ideas that form the foundation of our work over time. The projects we are working on now have the benefit of the long-term expertise we bring from the design and execution of previous projects. New technological advances, building materials and lifestyle preferences change, but good design principles stand the test of time. The difference is the context: a project's location, purpose and for whom it is designed. For these reasons, our work is unique because of each new set of opportunities and challenges. On these we strive as architects and designers.
