Howard Rosen, founder of ARTECHO, is an architect with a strong background in engineering, construction, fine art, and a degree in Industrial Design fron UCLA. Many of his buildings are engineered to allow open and flexible spaces; room sizes are adjustable, as family or business needs change. Very skilled in the efficiency of space, he maximizes square footage to design living spaces that are open and engage the landscape. Dramatic interior volumes are a trademark of Howard's designs.
Pamela Palmer is principal in charge of landscape architecture. Holding a master's degree in landscape architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a fine arts degree from UCLA, Pamela draws from her strong background in art and landscape architecture. Before joining ARTECHO, Pamela worked for eight years with Peter Walker, Martha Schwartz, and William Johnson on projects in Japan and Europe, as well as across the US. Her long-standing conviction that outdoor space can be sculpted in a way that it is artful and intriguing, while practical and ecologically responsible, is evident in her work. Her experience includes projects ranging in size from residential and commercial to elmentary and university and corporate campuses to city parks and urban design of new and existing town centers. The current emphasis is on single and multi-family residential projects ranging in scale from urban courtyards to rural estates as well as institutional and commercial works throughout California
