ROB WELLINGTON QUIGLEY
Rob Quigley A native of Southern California, Rob has been designing high-end custom homes in the region since opening his San Diego-based firm in 1978. His work has earned more than 60 design awards from the American Institute of Architects. The Quigley-designed 202 Island Inn in downtown San Diego was named one of the "Ten Best Designs of 1992" by TIME magazine. Two of Rob's ocean-view homes -- the Capistrano Beach Glass House and the Jaeger Beach House -- were widely published in the 1990s and are still studied today by architectural students around the world.
Some of Rob’s recent notable projects in the U.S. include the Children´s Museum/Museo de los Niños San Diego, the San Diego New Main Library and the Alden Residence in Beverly Hills, California. In Mexico, Casa Blanca within a new residential complex, PACIFICA at Ensenada Bay, is perceived as a representation of contemporary living for Mexican and US cultures in one unique context.
Rob was also an early leader in the sustainable design movement, designing solar-powered homes in the 1970s—long before "green" became an industry buzzword. His work is driven by a deep sense of responsibility to conserve natural resources.
A longtime student of the public realm, Rob has focused his recent efforts on civic and academic buildings. Current work in Southern California includes the Children's Museum San Diego, the Student Academic Services Facility at UCSD, and the San Diego New Main Library. In Northern California recent projects include the Leslie Shao-ming Sun Field Station at Stanford University, the West Valley Branch Library in San José, and the Opportunity Center of the Midpeninsula in Palo Alto.
