Parallel’s objective is to build communities.

Parallel Architecture Studio has been involved in providing architectural services for multi-family and mixed-use developments, independent senior and active senior facilities, retail and commercial buildings, church structures, restaurants, night clubs, early childhood academies and office design/space planning. We have also become skilled leaders in the adaptation and restoration of historic buildings.

Good design keeps people together.

We keep people at the center of our work. It's a key tenet of design thinking, and even as our methods evolve in response to new, complex challenges, we’re always designing solutions for people first. We’re designing and building to learn, and learning as we build, through inspiration, creativity and implementation.

We seek long-term relationships with our clients. The value of our work stems directly from the values to which we adhere: Parallel's strict work ethic, our efficient delegation of duties, and our determination to do the job well from the project's inception. A long list of repeated clients trusts and has relied on the expertise of Carolina Peña, the principal at Parallel, for more than 10 years.
