After 12 years of collaboration, over pizza and red wine, these two old friends with remarkably similar approaches to life and work teamed up. David & Christian made the partnership formal w/ Alvarez & Vincent LLC, and set up shop in the heart of Santa Monica.

Creative Director & Design Director NIKE
UCLA Instructor - Masters of Architecture and Interior Design Program

Born in Spain, raised in NYC, David now calls LA home. His pragmatism is his talent. As early as architecture school he began his practice of layering disciplines as a way to find new solutions to creative problems. David’s talent is seen in the many projects where he is working across the fields of architecture, design and education. Most importantly, his work is his joy, surrounded by good people and getting to draw everyday.

"For me, as a designer, it is not the ultimate goal to become self-expressive. The end goal is to solve a problem for someone else, and hopefully it looks great…”
-Tinker Hatfield (NIKE)



Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania & IUAV (Instituto Universitario di Architectura di Venezia) Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Virginia

Christian’s entire architecture career has developed in LA. It started at Marmol Radziner & Assosciates, and spans over 15 years in the fields of architecture & construction; with extensive experience in design, general contracting, real estate development, furniture design, and custom fabrication.

Jean Prouve said, “Never design anything that cannot be made.” Christian subscribes to that notion happily!
