Michael joined Kuth Ranieri in 2013 as a senior project architect. He is a registered architect in Massachusetts and California and a LEED Accredited Professional since 2004. His previous work experience includes a diverse array of project types including residential, wildlife and animal care, mixed-use affordable housing, large-scale educational and university, office, retail, and cultural projects. Michael received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Penn State University and Master’s degree from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He has practiced in Boston and San Francisco since 1997 and has taught architecture courses at the Boston Architectural College and for Oxbridge Academic Programs in Paris.

He brings a broad set of professional skills, including program management of complex, multiphase building prototype and tenant improvement programs, architectural project management, and the formation and implementation of multidiscipline CAD/BIM standards. His academic interests stem from the potentialities of semi-autonomous systems; coordinated transportation infrastructures and microgrid, prefab, zero-energy structures along with the economic incentives or realignments that could make space for them.

When not in the office, he can probably be found hiking, biking, or skiing in the mountains, swimming, kayaking or kiteboarding in the bay, or running along the waterfront.

Senior Associate
Ophelia Wilkins joined Kuth Ranieri in 2015. She is a registered architect in the state of California and holds a Masters degree in Architecture from MIT in Cambridge, MA. Ophelia’s background is primarily in the areas of public transportation buildings and sustainable rural affordable housing. Linking these experiences is an interest in designing for public clients and creating transit-, bike- and pedestrian-oriented spaces.

Prior to joining Kuth Ranieri, Ophelia contributed to numerous projects in the Bay Area, including space planning for the downtown San Francisco BART stations, design of the 24th and Mission BART Plaza renovation, and SFO renovations including Boarding Area E and Terminal 3 East. From 2007-2010, Ophelia was a Rose Architectural Fellow based in Durango, Colorado where she developed and designed green affordable housing, setting a new normal of deeply energy efficient homes (50% of the area average) and developing a net-zero energy prototype using culturally-appropriate strategies. She has also contributed to design and construction of strawbale homes and public buildings on the Navajo, Hopi, and Turtle Mountain nations.

Contributing to her perspective on architecture are her interests in long distance trail running, road and mountain biking, yoga, and craft, including building clothes, furniture, and pottery.

Carlos Esquivel joined Kuth Ranieri Architects in 2017. A recent graduate, he earned his Bachelors of Art in Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. His experience there allowed him to study both traditional and digital fabrication methods. In correlation, he practices both traditional design processes and form finding design techniques. At Kuth Ranieri, Carlos has participated in producing an award winning pavilion for the San Francisco Market Street Prototyping Festival, SonoGROTTO. Carlos has a strong desire for exploring architecture and its intersection with culture. His views look to address how both function as interpretive symbols of existing paradigms, and using graphic techniques for expressing those views. In his spare time, Carlos explores creating multi-media and mix-media art for small scale gallery exhibitions or picking up boxing gloves and going a few rounds.

Carlos Esquivel
Designer
Carlos Esquivel joined Kuth Ranieri Architects in 2017. A recent graduate, he earned his Bachelors of Art in Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. His experience there allowed him to study both traditional and digital fabrication methods. In correlation, he practices both traditional design processes and form finding design techniques. At Kuth Ranieri, Carlos has participated in producing an award winning pavilion for the San Francisco Market Street Prototyping Festival, SonoGROTTO. Carlos has a strong desire for exploring architecture and its intersection with culture. His views look to address how both function as interpretive symbols of existing paradigms, and using graphic techniques for expressing those views. In his spare time, Carlos explores creating multi-media and mix-media art for small scale gallery exhibitions or picking up boxing gloves and going a few rounds.
