Team Biographies

Ignacio Sardinas

For Ignacio Sardinas, seeing his ideas brought into reality is the most rewarding aspect of being an architect. To Ignacio, architecture has a soul. It is vibrant and alive. The soul is the idea on which it is based, fashioned through substance and intellectual validity.

Ignacio’s innovative way of looking at design and construction problems from a lateral as well as a liner point of view sets him apart from other architects and builders. When considering a problem linearly, he breaks the process down. He uses a lateral approach to consider seemingly unrelated options that result in a more unique and satisfying solution.

His dedication to mid-century and contemporary design has won Ignacio numerous historic preservation awards. He has a proven track record in the design and creation of residential, commercial, retail, corporate, and educational facilities.

As an architect, Ignacio fully understands the significance of every design decision. As a master builder, he is intimately involved in bringing designs to life. As an educator, he gives back to future generations of architects.
