Who We Are

Ryan La Haie

PRINCIPAL | LEAD DESIGNER

The driving force behind 42° North’s boutique experience is the owner and principal Ryan La Haie. Like most people who develop a unique skill into a career, Ryan knew from a very young age he loved architecture; its forms, materials, and craftsmanship.

Travis Vugteveen

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Travis has a solid genetic predisposition toward the construction industry coming from a family of masons including cousins, uncles, and his father. It was his father, however, who cemented his career by arranging an introduction to a respected architect.

Curtis Bac

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER

Curtis brings a unique vantage point to 42° North with his dual education in interior and exterior architecture. As a child, he looked over the shoulder of his father, an architectural draftsman, who brought to life his son’s imagined homes with AutoCAD software. Curtis was inspired to help others imagine the possibilities of their living spaces.

Roberto Gonzalez

ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATE

Roberto’s inquisitive nature was fueled by working beside his dad pouring and finishing concrete building foundations. Watching solid form develop into a living structure, he wondered who the mastermind was behind this transformation. He knew at an early age that he wanted to learn all the details behind how a house is built.
