Tony Garcia is one of the bright lights running A-Squared Studios. He was recently named American Institute of Architect’s San Diego chapter “Young Architect” of the Year (2014 edition).
As the firm’s managing partner, Mr. Garcia is a grad of Arizona State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in design. At ASU he also garnered a CAC/AIA Design Excellence Award.
A-Squared Studios is headquartered on the Hillcrest side of Park Boulevard, a few blocks north of Balboa Park.
The firm focuses on architecture, graphic design and photography with clients in Northern and Southern California and New York.
A current example of an A-Squared residential project is the Daniels Residence in La Jolla. This 4,100 s.f. remodel worked within the constraints of the California Coastal Commission requirements to transform the home into a more modern aesthetic. Sited on a bluff, the remodel allows all rooms to have unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, while staying within the mandated footprint.
