Ryan Dayag – Architectural Associate III, Beverly Hills Office
Ryan joined us back in late May, right after Jared. He joins us from Ferrier Architecture where he worked as a Project Design Lead and Project Manager for almost a decade. During his tenure at Ferrier he had the distinct honor to have won an AIA LA Residential Architecture Citation Award for one of his residential designs.
Ryan joins PHX with a variety of design experience. He will be working mostly with Jared Lanctot and Michel DesBarres (Architect II) in the Beverly Hills office, as well as several of our Project Managers located in our Scottsdale office. With his extensive project experience – we are excited that he will be one of the few team members that work on both the hospitality team and residential teams. In addition to his passion for design and architecture, Ryan also brings with him an incredible culinary prowess. Having attended culinary school prior to getting his degree in design from California Polytechnic University – Pomona. Ryan credits his career in design to his high school CAD teacher who really nurtured his design bug with the freedom to explore design; as well as the use of technology to achieve his design goals. Additionally – Ryan’s inspiration comes from as he says “everything” – having realized that everything and anything can be an inspiration. However, people he specifically draws inspiration from are architects like Tadao Ando, Richard Meier, Renzo Piano, Jacques Herzog and Pierre De Meuron.
Ryan is currently working on several of the firm’s high profile projects including two residences in California, and a large scale hospitality project.
