ABOUT THE ARCHITECT
Founded in 2007 by Rodolfo Castro, Castro Design Studio, LLC is a full-service boutique residential design firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. The firm focuses on the planning and design of custom, high-end residences and vacation homes. Their projects include new houses, additions, restorations, and renovations.
Castro Design Studio, LLC believes that a house is to be lived in and enjoyed, not simply admired. It is the people in the house that give it life. While their work draws inspiration from the traditional and classical architecture of the area as well as from the client’s own ideas, their design is not necessarily defined by any particular style. Traditional and Modern elements are often comfortably combined creating work that is both timeless and current while respecting the project’s site and context.

Building a new home is one of the most time-consuming and expensive undertakings that a person will have in their lifetime. Tate Builders believes that it should be one of the most rewarding, as well.
