A native to the Monterey Peninsula, Samuel Pitnick is a licensed architect in the State of California and has been practicing architecture since 2010. Samuel moved to Los Angeles in 2005 to attend the University of Southern California where he graduated with honors receiving his Bachelor of Architecture Degree. While at the University of Southern California he spent a semester abroad traveling throughout Asia studying historic and contemporary architecture and urban design. While in Asia he attended the University of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur and worked with local students to develop a visitor center for the Iban Tribe in Borneo.
Samuel has worked on a diverse range of projects including single and multi-family residences, retail, commercial, educational, recreational, healthcare, and wellness centers. These projects spread from California to Hawaii, New York, Europe and Asia. His award-winning competition designs have been published online and exhibited in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, Los Angeles, and Istanbul.
As an advocate for sustainable and environmentally responsible design, Samuel is a LEED Accredited Professional with an emphasis in Building Design and Construction. Each project he designs strives for a harmonious balance between nature and architecture. These values were incorporated into Samuel's design for a holistic wellness center, which promoted cultural and environmental sustainability, and formed the basis for a TEDx talk which he was asked to present at USC in 2010.
Samuel moved back to his hometown of Carmel in 2014 to focus on residential architecture.
