VINA LUSTADO | SOL HAUS DESIGN
Vina Lustado is the founder/owner Sol Haus Design, a design firm based in Ojai, California. With a professional degree from USC and more than 20 years in high-end corporate architecture, Vina decided to focus her career on smaller-scale projects that could make a positive difference.
One of the highlights of Lustado’s career is an international fellowship in Germany to research ecological and affordable housing. During the time she spent abroad, Lustado learned that sustainability must be a mindset that pervades culture and lifestyle.
Staying true to her core values, Vina has completed the design and construction of her tiny home on wheels. Equipped with simple luxuries as a loft skylight and cozy fireplace, Vina manifested her dream home in 140 square feet. It reflects her philosophy about simplicity, sustainability, and living within her means.
Since 2013, Vina has been living full-time in her tiny house and couldn’t be happier living anywhere else. One year later, she decided to build her own tiny office, SOL POD, where she spends most of her time designing and creating.
In 2015, Vina was selected as one of ‘Global 100 Most Influential Women in the World’ by Filipina Women’s Network. She has been a featured speaker at Yale University to inspire young minds about sustainability and social entrepreneurship.
