LEANDRO M. LANTIGUA
Leandro M. Lantigua, co-founder and a Principal designer of Modplay Studio was formally trained as an Architect at Pratt Institute in New York City. Lantigua is highly influenced by contemporary architecture and is a practitioner of industrial and architectural design.
The foundation for his design practice is a blend of classic craftsmanship coupled with innovative and modern design to accomplish timeless spaces. Through his time as both a designer and fabricator he created unadorned architectural spaces that evoke a clear and direct vision. Blending unexpected combinations of materials such as stone, wood and steel he creates artful and unforgettable interiors. He feels strongly that on its most basic level, architecture is a response to fundamental human needs, but it is the architect or designers responsibility to introduce new perspectives and dynamics into spaces.
In 2016 he forged his partnership with life long friend and fellow practitioner Carlos Rodriguez to create Modplay Studio. Lantigua’s blend of classicism and modernity, sparing use of color and simple geometry have helped create this unique and symbiotic partnership.
