Nadia P Lauterbach

Nadia Palacios Lauterbach credits her passion for design and the art of building to her upbringing in the colonial cities of Nicaragua. She attended the prestigious School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame, where she received a Bachelor's degree in Architecture in 2003.

After graduation, Nadia apprenticed for three of the premier practitioners of Classical and Traditional Architecture in America: Duany Plater-Zyberk Architects and Town Planners in Washington DC, The Office of Thomas N. Rajkovich Architect in Chicago, and Curtis and Windham Architects, in Houston. In 2009 she founded Nadia Palacios Lauterbach Design Consultant, where she continues to pursue challenges in design and specializes in the creation of Homes and Gardens.

Nadia draws inspiration from many sources, particularly from her travels through Europe and Latin America, and she believes that architecture must stand the test of time and trends, that all spaces must be livable and human in scale, and that everything built must be beautiful.

Forest Friends Nursery for Alexander

When I found out I was pregnant with a boy I immediately started thinking of his nursery. Though at first I wasn’t sure which design direction to take, I was certain of what I didn’t want: “Baby CEO”, primary colors, plaid, or anything sports related. I wanted Alex to have a bright and happy room in which he could transition from infant to toddler.
