Ysabel Colón

ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATE

“Design is translation. It’s the process of drafting a feeling.”

Ysabel is proficient in graphic representation, material research, and theory. Day to day, she does a little of everything: permitting, design, drafting, and client interactions. 

She sees architectural drawings as a language that speaks spaces into being. Her work thrives in a layered context where materiality, color, motif, narrative, and archaeology meet. 

All her work is driven by a love for the ambiguous nature behind beautiful, functional spaces. 

“The thrill of designing involves the process of looking both forward and backward, “ she says, “forward to the desired feel of a space and backward to the technical details that come together to make it. In that sense, design translates between past, present, and future.”

“A well-balanced design should grow from the playful interactions between site, form, function, texture, and color.”
