The Architect
Hacienda de la Paz remains the only private residence in the Americas designed by celebrated architectural laureate Rafael Manzano Martos, whose ties to Spain's historically revered buildings are both strongly forged and internationally recognized.
Manzano, a practicing master of neoclassical architecture and the Mudejar style, served for two decades as Governor and Director Curator of Europe's oldest active royal palace, the Alcazar of Seville. His body of work spans continents, cultures and decades. He has served with distinction as the principal architect in the rehabilitation of several of Spain's palaces, cathedrals and academic institutions. Rafael's role in so many epic restorations has resulted in several professional and civil awards including the Notre Dame Richard H. Driehaus Prize for classical architecture, the Shiller Prize for Building Restorations and Commander of the Civil Order of King Alfonso X, the Wise.
The architectural authenticity and grandeur of the Hacienda, with its gracefully coupled Spanish and Moorish influences, connects the residence to the classical idiom and its Andalusian roots. As any visitor can attest, Manzano’s efforts at Hacienda de la Paz have culminated in an enclave that is imbued with a balance of both palatial splendor and reverential tranquility.
As principal design architect of Hacienda de la Paz, Manzano worked in cooperation with California-based architect Anthony Inferrera.
