In 2011 I got the opportunity to meet some special clients who hired me to design two houses at the same time. 138 Russel and Trout Lake cabin were a special time for me as I worked through the heart of the recession. I was so thankful to have the opportunity to work on both houses for the same client during the same time frame. There really was not a lot of building going on at that time in our community.

Good architecture is in the details. At 302 N. Aspen Street our goal was to create a residence that enhanced the historical and unique aesthetic character of Telluride. Site specific architecture that relates to its immediate context is the hallmark of special projects. We believe that 302 N. Aspen Street is a project that qualifies as exemplary.

Gravity Works is a retail shop on main street which includes a climbing wall, and private gym. This commercial project was hatched in January 2010, and completed with the door opening for business by Thanksgiving 2010. The fast track project included the real estate transaction, HARC approvals, code review, construction documents, bidding, and all construction administration. We also obtained HARC approvals for Phase 2 which includes a roof top deck and restaurant.
“Luke is very conscientious and hardworking architect. He takes the time to understand his client’s intent and formulates his approach based on his client's objectives. Luke is very creative and uses technology appropriately in all phases of his practice.”
“Being at a distance we were unsure how everything would go but having Luke involved from the beginning was the best decision we made. Not only was his design exactly what we were looking for but his follow up and constant attention to detail ensured that we ended up with a house that far exceeded our expectations. We cannot wait to work with Luke again.”
“You once asked what we might have changed retrospectively about the home. My answer perhaps best summarizes our feelings about the design, nothing substantive. Working within some rather restrictive parameters, the architect, contractor, and owner worked together to address and answer every stated goal. The result of the transformation of a clumsy, 20-year old structure into an attractive, comfortable, functional and cost effective home.”
TruLinea is derived from my name Luke Trujillo, and the ideas held true for architecture. When we established our office in 2007, we wanted to create a name that was comprehensive of many beliefs. We strongly believe that TruLinea is representative of our clients, our design teams, and our contractors. We are all in a partnership.
