Located +145.00 feet above sea level, HLJH is a home designed from a process of discovering the families needs and an understanding of how they want to live. The site is set in an active urban environment sandwiched between 3 neighbors and a sports complex which can be loud at given times. Due to these constraints, the premise was to create a place that lives privately within its own landscape. SR 1 development coming soon17 studios and 1 penthouse suite.50' x 100' site23,405 sfDesigner / Project Manager: Dominique HourietArchitect of Record: Philip CudabackDeveloper: Idea Enterprises LP Located in San Diego, California, The Patio on Lamont is a newly developed restaurant in Pacific Beach. The concept stems from an existing restaurant that had been a part of the community for many years. The old structure was in such disrepair that we had to rebuild it, in its entirety. Using the same building footprint, we left choice pieces untouched to exhibit the building's history. Other items that had to be disassembled and removed, lead to many great opportunities in repurposing those old materials. The big idea was to open the surrounding interior spaces to the heart of the restaurant, which is The patio on Lamont. collaborators:tectu.rebeatrize arruezlahaina architects In a collaboration with Lindsay Brown Studio, project BPO is an office program for a financial investment firm in Mexico. The project is located in a LEED certified building within 20 minutes of the US, Mexico border. The wooden slats that wrap the reception and conference room were reclaimed timber from the cedar fires that burned in Julian, CA. Iglesia de la Natividad was an international closed competition amongst 14 architects from around the world. The project was for a prominent Catholic Church which would sit on a hillside overlooking a lake in La Primavera, Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. The nave would house 700 guests with additional space for classrooms, a crypt and plazas sprinkled throughout the campus. Anonymously, our team won the community and the judges vote, but the client has yet to proceed with our concept? We hope to proceed with this project to completion.special thanks to co-lab, dust db and pi.kl for all your help In this collaboration with Sebastian Mariscal Studio, my role was to take the project from development, design, entitlements through construction completion. The site was a single lot split in two, making 2 lots 18' wide x 67' long. The project resides on a busy street in downtown San Diego, so the concept was to make the houses live inward, with a central courtyard that allows light and air to breath into all the spaces.Photography by: Hisao SuzukiArchitect of record: Art Balourdas Project Fay or 2-inns, are 2 single family homes built on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The dwellings are a careful composition of cast-in-place concrete, wood and glass. The main feature of the house is its connection to the exterior by a series of removable walls. The nana wall system slides on a single track and parks itself within a storage enclosure. Once open the kitchen, living and dining spaces seem to be outside with simply a canopy overhead to protect from the elements. My role in this project for Sebastian Mariscal Studio was project management from initial design through construction completion.Architect of record: Art Balourdas Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico is a serene raw landscape located approximately 50 miles south of the US-Mexico border. The temperate valley attracts a layer of fog which quenches the roots of the grapevines every morning. Working with Sebastian Mariscal Studio, our client was needing a wine laboratory to aid in his wine exploration and production process. The project is a play of the rugged landscape with the organization of the wine making process. Project Ravina is a series of rowhouses that each are composed of 2 parts, the service elements (stairs, elevators, storage, and the like) are placed in the limestone-clad volumes. The bedrooms and private areas are located in the wood volumes that bridge between the stone elements. Under the wood forms, a large loft-like space for the kitchen and living areas extend into the gardens at both ends. This connection is made seamless by using fold-away glass doors that completely open the space connecting the interior to the exterior.Architect of record: Art BalourdasProject by: Sebastian Mariscal Studio, Photography by: Hisao Suzuki Project 88 was a development spec-house designed for La Primavera, Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico We are designers, developers that work with architects to develop infill projects.

We hope to proceed with this project to completion.special thanks to co-lab and pi.kl for all your help Located in La Mesa, CA. the project on Edgewood was a remodel of an existing 2500 sf house. The task was to make the house more responsive to the elements by closely connecting to exterior living spaces and increasing the efficiency and function of the spaces for living and working. The materials were mostly found recycled old wood fencing, flooring and siding planks.
