“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.”
