Where you’ll be

Cotacachi, Imbabura, Ecuador

The apartment is steps away, by pedestrian street, from the main Matriz Park and the historic Spanish Colonial style architecture of the Iglesia Matriz church and the recently restored historical museum Museo de las Culturas. Also, you will find nearby the Calle Ten de Augusto or ‘the leather street’ with its fine leather shops, restaurants and cafes. Recently there is a plethora of new coffee cafes with excellent Ecuadorian and regional coffee at offer. There is a local produce market nearby along with ‘Tia’ (aunt in Spanish). A nearby well stocked modern grocery and home supply store for most everyday needs and convenience.

Educated in Architecture and Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, I had spent my career in Michigan of some 30 plus years working in the area of residential design, remodeling and renovations with a special interest in solar design, sunroom and traditional wood and glass conservatory additions. Having moved to Ecuador in 2010 I have continued to work on design and building projects in various new materials and methods here in Ecuador. Then after purchasing a 4 story building in ‘Centro’ (downtown or city center) in the small leather making community of Cotacachi I set upon to completely and totally renovate its 3 units in open space plans of a new eclectic contemporary/industrial style. I have one available first floor 2 story loft style apartment for weekly and monthly rental. The Casa Blanca an urban experiment in design and construction in a small tourist city experience and my small contribution in improvements to the local urban landscape .
