Gonzalo Villares grew up in Uruguay, but decided to make the Twin Cities home after completing a scholarship program at the University of Minnesota. He enjoys the daily challenge of finding architectural solutions that best meet his client’s goals. He thrives in the collaborative process required to ensure successful projects, and prides himself on the strong relationships he has built with his clients, consultants and contractors.

Gonzalo looks for any chance to be near the ocean again, whether it’s for vacation or eventually to live. When he’s not directing projects, you can find him listening to Latin music and dancing with his two young daughters.
