A South Florida native, Jose Bofill finds a feeling of “home” far beyond the four walls of a house. The designer spent most of his childhood outdoors, surrounded by lush greenery and the wide expanse of the Atlantic Ocean—and he believes design and technology can work together to protect this home.
Jose grew up in a creative family, and his grandmother, a painter and sculptor, instilled a sense of wonder and curiosity in him from a young age. He discovered his passion for architecture in its mix of technical potential and artful expression, and has been investigating that connection for over 20 years with our Miami studio. His projects are not only beautiful, but technically advanced and always designed with the future of the environment in mind.
Miami’s subtropical climate is one of the most unique in the U.S., and so is its culture. By bringing his creative skill as well as his family’s Cuban heritage to the studio with him every day, Jose is deeply rooted in Miami culture and intimately familiar with the local environmental challenges that the city faces. Under his leadership, the studio has focused on supporting cross-cultural connections in the community and integrating sustainability into the very core of the design process.
