KYLE DAROCA

Born and raised in the New Orleans area, Kyle has returned home to explore the rich history and architectural heritage of the city.  Having a Minor in Architectural History, Kyle’s dedication to architecture largely derives from his interest in the history and life of a place.  He believes that every building tells a story and to truly restore a building means to discover that story, revive it, and ensure its continuation.  Always up for a challenge, Kyle’s belief that the best use of history is to inform the pursuit of the future has spurred his passions for pushing the boundaries of design and exploring innovation in the built environment.  Subsequently, Kyle believes that architecture is just as much about people as it is about spaces and buildings. Establishing a comprehensive understanding of the needs of the client and end users of a space is ever-important in the design process of his projects.

Kyle aims to use his previous background in food service and institutional architecture and his passions to further the exciting story and the cutting-edge of hospitality in this wonderful city.
