Luis Martinez, AIA, NCARB

Luis Eduardo Martinez Camacho grew up in Colombia and it was there where Luis gained his earliest introduction to architecture. At the young age of 21, Luis received an Architectural Degree from Fundacion Universidad De America in Bogotá and went to work alongside experienced architects and craftsmen at Servicio Seccional de Salud de Antioquia – Medellin, Colombia.

The complexity of assignments grew along with Luis’ expertise. When he moved to the United States in 2000, Luis had over two decades of architectural experience designing healthcare and educational facilities for governmental and private institutions in Colombia. For a time after coming to the U.S., Luis broadened his architectural portfolio to include commercial buildings, educational and higher education facilities, as well as institutional corrections facilities.

Latin American QuatroLuis can be found now in the Altus Denver office, filling an essential role as a Senior Healthcare Project Architect. Colleagues and clients praise his attention to time management and his dedication to managing every detail of the planning, design and construction administration phases. Luis is also generous with his knowledge and experience, having spent the last decade mentoring young architects and performing construction documents quality control.

Other than his Colombian-American heritage, Luis is most proud of his family, which includes “smart and wonderful kids,”  and “a very dedicated and hard-working wife.” Few may know it but Luis is also a talented musician. He plays the guitar, tiple and Cuatro (a Latin-American four-stringed guitar) and considers music to be an essential complement to his life.
