Vina Lustado has over twenty years experience in the industry and holds an architecture degree from USC. Vina has worked with notable offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago, with projects ranging from high-end custom homes to large corporate headquarters.
After more than two decades on the high-end corporate path, Vina decided to focus her career on smaller-scale projects that could make a positive difference. She had always been drawn to social and environmental causes by volunteering with various non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity, Ojai Valley Green Coalition, and Volunteer For Peace.
One of the highlights of Vina’s career is an international fellowship in Germany to research ecological and affordable housing. During the time she spent in Germany, Vina learned that sustainability must be a mindset that pervades culture and lifestyle.
Staying true to her values, Vina has completed the design and construction of her off-the-grid Tiny House. Equipped with simple luxuries as a loft skylight and a cozy fireplace, Vina has manifested her dream home in 140 square feet. It reflects her philosophy about simplicity, sustainability, and living within her means.
Vina Lustado received her professional architecture degree (B. ARCH) from University of Southern California. She has all the required training/experience for licensure, but not yet a registered architect. For questions about working with Vina and SOL HAUS DESIGN, please contact us HERE.
