About us

Since its founding in 1985, Pascual, Perez, Kiliddjian, Starr (PPKS) & Associates has focused on its clients.  One of the firm’s seminal projects for the development company Arvida became what is now the City of Weston, Florida. The collaboration resulted in the design and construction of more than 10,500 residential units of different types and densities. PPKS has been located in the City of Doral, Florida for over thirty years offering planning and architectural services.  The firm’s work in Florida spans from the panhandle in the north to the Florida Keys in the south.  Internationally, the firm has worked in the Bahamas and in Central America.


Four partners form the leadership at PPKS. Partners Mario Pascual and Peter Kiliddjian are from Cuba and have resided in Miami for over fifty years.  Edgar Perez is from Honduras and has lived in the United States for more than forty years. Andrew Starr is from Pennsylvania and has lived in South Florida for over twenty two years. Mario is a graduate of the University of Florida, while Peter, Edgar and Andrew graduated from the University of Miami. Together they lead a team of twenty-five architects and planners of diverse nationalities and various levels of experience.


Clients seek to work with PPKS due the comprehensive service the firm provides. From the initial planning stage, PPKS incorporates its market knowledge and experience in architectural design and efficient construction. This strategy has been the foundation of ensuring the value and identity of each community the firm designs.


Presently, PPKS is working on projects throughout South Florida, considered to be one of the best regions for real development in the United States.  Within the region, the City of Doral is especially unique due to an international market that is seeking modern designs, tropical outdoor living areas and luxurious amenities. The modern contemporary style dominates recent developments, not only for the design of outdoor living spaces and facades, but also in the concepts and development of floor plans and interior spaces.
