Be the Architect of Your Life - Luxury Architecture & Design meets Global Investment Boutique
During the 45 minute-event, we would like to give you an overview of the global and US real estate market, look at the evolution of luxury residential real estate and shed light on trends in architecture and design values.
We have partnered with “Montalba Architects”, an award-winning, international architecture firm with studios in Los Angeles and Lausanne. Montalba Architects produces select architecture and urban design-related projects ranging in scope and context, from the rural landscapes in Wyoming and Switzerland to the dense, urban surroundings of New York and Los Angeles. With projects that emphasize experiences, Montalba Architects creates new forms of expression through space and scale that are both socially responsive and aesthetically progressive.
Note to our live stream participants: This contact form does not start the live stream. However, we are happy to give you the opportunity to contact us before and after the event or to request a personal consultancy.

The firm is engaged in retail, residential and other select commercial projects across the US and abroad. Believing that architecture and ones environment can truly improve quality of life, David’s approach is a humanistic one, which often leads to solutions that are discrete, contextual, yet conceptual in their intent, effect, and appeal.
