Edward DeVicente, educated at University of Miami, with a BA in Architectural Engineering and a minor in athematics has a tremendous understanding of how structures are organized and are put together.  His technical knowledge is rivaled only by his passion and dedication to sustainable design.

Ryan J. Mills, with formal training and degree in the fine arts, has hands on experience in multiple mediums from painting and graphic design, to digital modeling and animation. Ryan regards architecture in the same light as art, based on aesthetics.  Like art, successful architectural design is the arrangement of elements; form, space, and light, to evoke our senses and emotion.
