Marcos Santa Ana

AIA, CPHD, Architect, General Contractor, Passive House Certified High Performance Building Designer

Marcos Santa Ana founded Alloi in 2009 with the goal of creating inspiring tranquil spaces that slow time and incite contemplation. He is a California licensed architect, California licensed general contractor, and a member of the Los Angeles American Institute of Architects. He also holds a certification from the Passive Haus Institute in Germany for the integration of high-performance buildings. His creativity, precision, and encyclopedic knowledge of materials are well-valued by his clients who wish to synchronize the design and construction of their home or commercial project. Marcos draws inspiration for his European architectural schooling, learning from the Danish Arkitektskolen i Aarhus as well as the architectural school in Barcelona, Spain. His unique approach to balancing art, Feng Shui eastern philosophy and constructability make him a unique part of the Alloi team.
Marcos finds energy in solitude and nature. A rock climber and alpine mountaineer, he is intrigued by undulations and formal complexities of mountain environments.
