Colin Liu

Studio Director

To fufill his desire to learn from architecture first hand, Colin has traveled extensively throughout the world and amassed a photo collection that often inspires his elegant designs. Bringing over 26 years of experience to the firm, his expertise in community architecture and product prototyping is invaluable.

“I envision the world of architecture evolving toward Tesla-like smart homes that are fully automated and energy efficient emphasizing an indoor-outdoor relationship with natural light and ventilation. It is important that design reflects a positive role in protecting the environment with elements such as renewable energy resources, solar power and drought tolerant landscaping.”

Colin’s experience ranges from high density housing to large-scale master plans developments. His responsibilities include overseeing design and production for all overseas projects, including working in China, India and Syria. He has designed the villages of Esencia for Rancho Mission Viejo and Arden West Palm Beach, as well as many projects in China including Rose Gardens, HangZhou, China; Clearwater Bay, Sanya, China; West Lake Mei Lu, HangZhou, China, and many more.

"Experience and ideas gained from different cultures, clients and team members all allow me to continually learn from every type of project,” said Colin. Colin earned his Architectural degree from the University of Southern California.
