About Us

Design matters. Anna Molina and Julia Pellegrini create beauty to make your space come alive. We are multi-award-winning architecture and interior design professionals who have collectively been working in the industry for 40 years. We have a passion for creating modern residential and hospitality spaces infused with timelessness that become the fabric of our lives. Our approachable, down-to-earth personalities coupled with our refined design expertise lends itself to a pleasurable process and custom projects that clients love. "It's really about how a space feels. Good design means walking into a room and feeling something." Anna and Julia first worked together a decade ago in San Francisco and were reunited working on a project in late 2017. Three months later we joined forces to create a full-service architecture and interior design firm, complete with a client wait list. We are also practicing artists who believe beauty and function can coexist, it's in our firm's DNA. "Beauty and art are all around us, we just need to know how to see it and create it." ANNA MOLINA, PRINCIPAL is an acclaimed interior designer, and for the past 20 years she has worked in the architecture industry designing and creating environments for residential, hospitality and corporate clients. Her eclectic style is driven by the philosophy that each space tells a story. Growing up in Europe and the United States, she graduated from the Berkeley College and has been based in New York City and San Francisco. Anna brings an international perspective and understanding of today's world to her work. She creates simple, functional, and unique spaces. JULIA PELLEGRINI, PRINCIPAL is an accomplished architect and interior designer who brings a distinct vision and attention to detail to her projects. Design is a way of life for her, and her passion is creating spaces where memories are made. Her love for modern design combined with her classical training lends itself to her signature timeless style. She contributes thoughtful, fresh ideas that work. "A design is complete when nothing can be taken away or added." Julia received her BArch from the University of Notre Dame and is a registered architect in California.
