“Capturing my community in the elegant light they deserve with dignity and beauty is what I want to do as a photographer. Portraiture has allowed me to hold space with time for reflection and for people to be their purest self. I would not be me without my camera and the perspective it gives me grows me.

I hope to create photo magic with you soon”.

FROM FOLSOM STREET

Our building was initially built in 1969. For many years it was a medical center, overtime it had all different kinds of businesses.

It’s been a dream of Dr. Luque to acquire this building, and he achieved it in 2015. By the end of 2020, we began the blueprints to design floor plans, furniture layouts, and lighting installs. The idea was to have a space where patients would enjoy the natural lighting, artistic murals, tropical plants, and the feel of a small art gallery. 

In addition, we wanted our patients to experience a sense of calm, security, and, above all, breaking out of the feel of a conventional medical office.

Construction began with the intent to have the building ready in three months. Those three months turned into six months, then eventually a year. Finally, in March of 2022, we managed to move in.

We are proud to continue to see our beautiful building grow. It will be a green building with a solar panel system on its roof in just a few short months.

We are thrilled to be part of the community that surrounds us, cheerful, colorful, and enterprising.
