Since founding G+U with Imelda Uribe in 1993, Luis M. Gutierrez has produced regional designs that reflect a commitment to a unique site that connect people and animals to the natural environment. A window, a garden, a wall, and a corridor in a space are key elements to reflect the study of place, climate and cultural precedent. The result is a design with transformative experiences that seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating healthy built environments. Luis' designs meet diverse program requirements while creating spaces that are meaningful and are tied to their particular surroundings.
Imelda shares with Luis the passion for horses, and believes in the importance of natural light and ventilation. Giving the horses the elements to be healthy and happy in a domesticated life. The result are barns that don't contradict natural equine instinct and adapt totally to the environment.
Belief in the functionality of spaces where the architecture is to serve, and to develop our inner soul. Our homes should be sanctuaries. Architecture should empower those spaces provoking on us a positive mind on our daily decisions and actions.
