Luis Trevino Architects has now merged with RDA! we are an Architect-led design firm with a reputation built on quality and successful project delivery. We believe that dialogue with clients is at the heart of the design process. That's why we take the time to analyse and explore briefs thoroughly, challenging assumptions and preconceptions to deliver the maximum potential from each site.
Our lateral thinking ensures practical, flexible, and future-proof designs. We are innovative in maximizing net/gross efficiency, achieving value for money, and reconnecting people with their environment through the careful manipulation of sensory qualities of light, material, and space. We believe in creating spaces that support and encourage the expression of contemporary life.
Our approach to planning consent is centred on getting the most out of the brief and site. We excel at developing and visualizing ideas in three dimensions and invite and encourage response from involved parties to define key parameters that "unlock" the potential of the schemes.
We are committed to quality control and client satisfaction, and our thorough management procedures ensure our involvement in every project. As a result, we have created and built award-winning schemes that showcase our expertise and hard work.
“We were looking to build a loft conversion to create more living space and some outdoor space with access to direct sunlight.
Luis helped us to capture all of the various components we wanted to be part of the design brief and then transformed them into some really creative ideas, many of which we would never have thought possible. We took our favourite components from each idea, which Luis was then able to bring together in a final proposal which was far beyond what we had thought possible.
Given the difficulty in getting planning permission for roof terraces, Luis was very helpful in articulating design ideas and providing photographs to get the planning authorities comfortable with the proposal. From there, Luis worked very collaboratively with our building contractors, always being on hand to solve practical problems with solutions which didn’t compromise the design.
The final product is testament to the quality of the design and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We spend huge amounts of time in the new space and there isn’t a single guest who hasn’t commented on how amazing the extension is and how visually impactful it is.”
John Dennis, Clapham
It was a pleasure working with Luis Treviño from beginning to end. He created a wonderful design for us, understanding exactly what we wanted, taking our ideas and giving them form.
He understood not only the technical aspects of his trade, but also the importance of light, space and how it feels to be within the space.
Luis enabled us to envisage what his plans would deliver, so that we were confident to push ahead in what was a brave leap for us.
He helped us manage the project throughout, and ensured that the project stayed on track and budget.
We now love our home, our quality of life and how we live in our house is completely transformed!

Luis Treviño is a gifted and innovative architect with an impressive and vast portfolio. I’ve followed is career closely which from a promising start has done nothing but gotten better. His own home is his best credential.
Simon, Gomez, Miami
I highly recommend Luis Trevino’s architectural work. His eye for detail and taste are impeccable. He listens carefully and provides different design options, talking you through each of them. When you visit his own house, you can see how he strikes the perfect balance of architectural vision and functionality. He can make any space feel bright and modern.
