Fabiola Vargas, Associate AIA
Associate | Architecture
Fabiola was born 5,000 miles away from Seattle, in Peru, but then moved to Seattle as a child. When she was 12 years old, a family friend took her to a “Girls in Engineering and Architecture” weekend workshop, and she realized that she wanted to be an architect. She studied interdisciplinary visual arts, architecture, and anthropology at the University of Washington, then earned her Master of Architecture from CCA. Her diverse education has resulted in a strong sense of art/aesthetics/design, cultural understanding, and strong analytical/research skills.
Before joining the team at Board & Vellum, Fabiola worked in San Francisco and gained experience in commercial, retail, and residential design. Her first and largest architectural project was working on “The Market,” a grocery-restaurant-hybrid located below the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. Fabiola seeks to create authentic architecture that is innovative, elevates the human experience, and enhances the community. She believes that successful architecture resides at the intersection of architecture, art, and culture.
During her spare time, Fabiola gives back to the community through her involvement with the AIA, the Seattle Architecture Foundation, and the Fremont Arts Council. She also enjoys print-making, drawing, dancing samba, and road trips.
