What Our Clients Say

Pabs Suarez is an empathic designer: he never imposes; he suggests only after listening.  The results we got were just right: he combined the mix of colors, the right fixtures, and good layouts.  We wanted subtlety, and he gave us the proper understatement.  For another customer he might be more flashy, or more elegant, or more this or less that. But in all cases, he will use the same process: listen, and then do the right thing.  This translates to a happy, comfortable home.
Many of our guests look at the angles and how light comes in and say it is architecturally attractive.
The Green Design of Architect Pabs Suarez is very much a daily blessing. During the summer, it allows for cool ventilation not normally found in most homes these days. Our air-well gives us a morning breeze while dining. During the cooler days, it is like being in Baguio while staying in Metro Manila. Positioning of rooms, relative to solar and wind orientation provides optimized harvesting of natural lighting and airflow. The design is especially helpful during brownouts when we need to rely on nature for these things. With Architect Suarez, you can enjoy nature in a modern design.
Pabs Suarez designed and built the perfect house for us 3 years ago. It is a functional and intimate home that supports our lifestyle. He considered conditions of our area and wind patterns, he placed windows, doors and lighting to save energy. He also helped us source sustainable materials. We love our home and can’t imagine being in quarantine anywhere else. Thank you Pabs!

Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Truly, the house designed by Architect Pabs Suarez and built by his partner contractor Wyndon Trinidad is perfect for our family. It has great space placement with intentional consideration for what nature has to offer.

The new building at OLAS-C is meant for the Basic Education Department component of the Seminary, College of Novaliches, Quezon City.

Before the turn-over of the building on 21 June 2018, a presentation of the features was shared by Arch. Pablo Suarez. It was a good and comprehensive presentation for the faculty and staff not only to appreciate the structures but explaining why the Basic Education Department was constructed the way it is.

In 2003, the youthful Arch’t Pabs of the Single Young Adults of Santuario de San Antonio Parish was tasked to design the plans for the church building of St John Mary Vianney Parish in Cembo, Makati. It was a tremendous challenge because the lot for the parish church construction was small in size and irregular in shape.

We are very happy with the sustainable design solutions by Ar. Pabs specially with the way he has helped improve natural ventilation. The Energy efficient elements and water-saving features he introduced into the renovation design has truly helped reduce utility costs. With a simple and streamlined design, he was able to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere into our newly renovated home.
I love working with Pabs Suarez! He is a good listener, thorough, detailed, organized, and flexible.  Most of all, Pabs knows how to design a green environment that is good for our planet. I have worked with him in our home and recommended him at work with success. He keeps us on track, within budget, and on schedule. I would work with him again and again!
