Alex Kathilu

Assoc. AIA

Alex Kathilu believes that architecture can be a catalyst for positive social and cultural change in the world and takes very seriously the architect's role in making this happen.  He approaches design carefully to interpret the client's vision both creatively and pragmatically.  His goal is to create something beautiful and functional that serves all the people who use it. As a young boy growing up in Kenya, Alex was always fascinated by construction sites; the different trades all working towards the same goal, yet on the surface it looked like chaos.  When he found out that before this beautiful construction site came alive, an architect was responsible, he knew that is what he wanted to do.  We are so excited to have Alex as a member of our STUDIOARCHITECTURE family. Alex likes to spend his spare time with his family.  He is also an artist and for the past few years has been working on a series of jazz paintings titled "the soul of jazz".  Also, most recently, Alex has taken up photography.  He says his daughter is his muse...when she allows him to hold the camera.
