Atelier Lira Luis LLC is an emerging synthesis of global architect, leed environmentalist, experience economist, progressive modernistand transformers of world and society. Architect Lira Luis (the Principal Architect) is the first Fil-American protege at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin since 1932. She is also one of the world’s youngest architects to hold two architectural licenses in two countries.
Utwentysix was started by two architects and an interior designer who met while working at a Philippine-based architectural firm. After working together for several years and many nights hanging out at unit 26A, the friendship blossomed into a full fledged design studio when the three made the jump to set up their own firm. Unit 26A is now not only a residence, but their office as well, and the studio was aptly named utwentysix, an acknowledgement to the space where their friendship developed and where their studio was born.
