Leo Casas ... Opticos Design ... Seaside
ROBERT STEUTEVILLE    JAN. 1, 2006
Leo Casas of Opticos Design has been hired by Seaside town founder Robert Davis to fill the position of the town architect. “This position had been vacant for several years and Robert Davis has reinstituted this position because he realized that the quality of architecture built in Seaside during the absence of the town architect was not up to Seaside standards,” Dan Parolek, Opticos principal, told New Urban News. Opticos has opened an office in Seaside and has hired Leo Casas to be President of this office. In addition to serving as the Town Architect, Opticos will help implement the downtown and beachfront master plan that the firm recently completed. This master plan includes a newly designed tower by Leon Krier for which Opticos is the Architect of Record.
