Having started their careers in New York City, where they "cut their teeth", Dani and Libby relocated to the Central Coast of California to start a new chapter in their personal and professional lives. After working for a local firm for many years they launched their own company whose practice explores the intersection of nature and technology, environmental stewardship and connection to community.
When not working Libby and Dani enjoy hiking in Big Sur, traveling to places near and far, digital photography, cooking, maintaining an organic garden, and playing with their dog, Canela.
In addition to work and home life, Libby and Dani contribute to improving their local community through various volunteer projects with local organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the City of Salinas, the AIA Monterey Bay and the Community Association of Big Sur.
Dani de Sola is currently running de sola.barnes as Libby is looking to make an impact in helping solve the California housing crisis.
