AIA, WELL AP
Javier joins the firm from New York City, where he practiced at several levels of architecture and design, from mixed-use and multi-family residential to fabrication and consumer products. Drawn to the historical aspect of architecture as a chronicler of time and place, Javier believes that sustainability and resilience are not simply labels, but necessities of good design.
He distinguishes his work by two distinct focuses: the technical aspects of architecture with a fondness for creating and making. He espouses the belief that every building can serve as an opportunity to nourish someone's life beyond its intended use--that every building should heal. Whatever the scale, no building stands without sacrificing our ecology, so every building should attempt to breathe life back out.
