Nathan Corser is a Design Principal/Senior Architect who has been instrumental in radically enhancing the building design process in ways that bring unexpected value to clients. The traditional building design process cast the architect in the role of conceptualizing a design concept which would then be submitted to the client for critique and revision. This isolated and time-consuming approach often fueled discord and delay within project teams. Nathan specializes in unifying and streamlining this process for the benefit of all parties.

Ozzie Gonzalez grew up with his feet firmly planted in two environments – winters in the massive tangle of urban Los Angeles and summers in the sun-drenched fields of rural Mexico. It’s only natural these two childhood influences led him to earn degrees in environmental science and architecture – he dreamed of blending the benefits of natural environments with built human habitats like cities. “It was very clear to me that nature does not stop because you pave a road through a piece of land,” he says.
