AXIA Architects had the pleasure of hosting Luca Pastene as he took part in the Healdsburg High School Academic Internship Program. This internship program is a wonderful opportunity for students to team up with local companies to gain real world experience. Through his internship he learned about state regulation of school campuses, attended a client and staff meeting, and was exposed to each step involved in standard architectural services. Using the skills he acquired, Luca was tasked with designing a small ADU through sketches and schematic design. Using his design, he created a materials board and presented it to his peers as his final project. Luca’s drive and enthusiasm to learn were a joy witness, we hope that his time here at AXIA encouraged him to continue with a future in Architecture.
