FOUNDER + ARCHITECT
As a Florida native, Ron Rickert, AIA, grew up in South Florida appreciating the local environment, nature, and the Atlantic ocean. Later he started building at an early age and eventually fell in love with architecture and the way energy was produced by nature. Ron graduated from Florida A&M University in 1987 with honors and the prestigious student AIA bronze award. In 2003, Ron started exploring the caribbean as a unique market that helped him develop a palate of environmental architecture that he continues to perfect today. The firm was created to exude passion and focus on projects that push architectural boundaries while pleasing the needs of the client as well as incorporating the latest materials, systems, energy, and technologies.
ARCHITECT + PRINCIPLE
lou nunez JR., AIA NCARB
Being born & raised in West Palm Beach, Lou Nunez Jr. got to enjoy the Saltwater environment of South Florida and how it has evolved throughout the years. Growing up having a general contractor as a father, helped mold the passion of the built environment into Lou’s love of Architecture. After graduating from Florida A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies, Lou continued his education by obtaining a Master’s in Architecture from the University of Kansas. Focusing on his craft after college, he gained experience in Commercial, Industrial, Residential, and Multi-Family projects. However, high-end residential is where his connection with clients excels by bringing innovative designs, detailing of materials, and proportion of volumes together to form a complete design. Lou reconnected with Ron to partner at INTELAE Architecture + Energy to focus on design & the details within the design, which helps separate the firm from the pack.

Ever since I can remember architecture has always been rooted in me. As one of my favorite architects once said "The metaphor of life is rooted in architecture. To be born, to grow, to be, is an architectural experience" -Daniel Libeskind. We are the architects of our own lives and our life experiences help us grow and the inner innovation we have in our selves is what inspires me in my designs. I developed a passion for the field in high school when my drafting teacher saw my spark for learning and desire to create. Ever since then, I have followed my passion for artistry and building. I have gained experience in commercial and residential architecture. I enjoy the challenge of balancing the clients needs and designing within the structural boundaries. Architecture has brought me to where I am today and I hope that in turn it brings people to the place they call home.
