Residential Architecture and Interior design in Los Cabos.

When developing in Los Cabos Residential Architecture and Interior Design Custom Home projects, which are usually second homes for a specific client, and a personalized service, or designing and building away from home, it pays to use the right people, likewise rather than only experince it requires a specific taste and culture..

For us the right people are those not only experienced Architects, Interior Designers and Builders, which you do find in some locations, but also people with the right culture. Therefore the services you personally need.

Jerry Jacobs Design, combines both concepts. We are perfectly familiar with the culture in Mexico, and particularly Los Cabos and also some other resort destinations, where we have worked for many years. Such as Cancun, the Mexican Caribbean Riviera, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Mazatlan, et.

Besides we offer the right combination of Creativity and Good management. While we also have the balance of Local Know How and USA technology. “A perfect combination”

We are a San Francisco Bay Area based company with 30 years in Residential Architecture and Interior Design practice. Likewise we operate as a California corporation, with associates or branches in Los Cabos, Cancun and Mexico City.

Therefore you get the best of both worlds, a difficult combination to find in one go. We have been designing and building private Custom homes in Mexico for 30 years, with great success.

The Architecture of Mexico.

Colonial Architecture and Pre-columbian as well, are a source of inspiration, as a test of time, but not to be imitated in a different Era. We do know what a real Pueblo is like, not the staged version, and we know the essence of Mexican Architecture, the Minimalism and Color of Luis Barragan.

“I traveled through  the country for many years, always studying the Architecture with a critical eye. Saw the good and the bad, an I am committed to producing the Best”.


Creativity. We always extend the envelope. Or we bring the Sea closer to your pool. Whatever is possible, we try to do it for the sake of the project. We make the most out of it.

Also Projects are an opportunity to please the client, and they too are means to create Art an Inspiration and successful Architecture and Interior Design, always unique to the location.

Turnkey. We have managed turn-key Residential projects for several well know American Entertainment and Business personalities.

All components of Architecture, Interior Design and Building Management required for the successful completion of your home.

There are so many beautiful places around us, nearby, perhaps a couple of hours flight away only. You plan the needs, imagine, draw, and make adjustments and changes.
Then you start building, and pretty soon it’s there to enjoy. We also do Turn-key for our clients, Architecture, Interiors and project management, hence what is required for each client.

We designed two great Villas, one to serve as rental extension to the five-star Hotel on the beach, the other one as a private residence.

Development consultant for Mexico, Los Cabos, Cancun, The Mexican Caribbean Riviera and other coastal resorts.

First of all I was born and raised in Mexico City. While there I studied Architecture and became licensed, a UNAM School of Architecture Professor in Urban Design, and started a successful practice building corporate flagships.

In 1980, we took the Acapulco Joe, later ACA JOE account and started designing their stores in all resorts, Cancun, Cozumel, PV, Acapulco and others. Finally I moved to the US in 1983 to launch the chain’s development and designed over 250 stores, for Aca Joe International, both as an independent and as Chief Architect. Fortunately I remained diversified hence continuing to take clients in Mexico.

In 1987 when Aca Joe International folded,  as a result I had numerous clients in Mexico and retained the Aca Joe Mexico account through 1996.


In 1987 another project was for Plaza Caracol, at that time the only High-end Mall in Cancun, Including remodeling plans for Phase I of the Shopping Center as well as their food court, bar and several stores. Furthermore in 1987-89 I did the public areas of the Omni Cancun Hotel, coming back to open the facilities after Gilbert then the strongest hurricane in the Caribbean.

While I was still doing the Aca Joe stores I did 3 in Cancun, 3 in Cozumel, 2 in PV, 3 in Acapulco, 2 in Mazatlan, as well as Ixtapa and Los Cabos. Projects were also made for a shopping center in Bahias de Huatulco.

The Fairmont Acapulco Princess.

We did some of the public areas for the Hotel, including the shopping Arcade and most of its stores as well as a few restaurants.

In 1991, as I diversified my practice initially focused in Retail and Hospitality, to Residential, I won the House Beautiful award for best showhouse room. While traveling to do an AJ store in Cozumel, I stopped overnight in Cancun. The next morning I visited Puerto Aventuras, in the Mexican Caribbean Riviera, where I was invited to design the Penthouse of the local Yacht Club. I did a series of projects for the same family in other cities of Mexico, in Veracruz and Monterrey.

Back in Cancun.

From 1996-2010, I designed numerous Waterfront Villas. One for Reba McEntire, and the well know Villa Madonna, a 20,000 sq. ft. Villa on the Beach. Many other homes, and condominiums were deigned too for different clients.

Los Cabos.

Most recently we designed two large view homes in Los Cabos, for a developer, yet to be built. We also completed the Pied-à–terre in Mexico City for another Los Cabos developer.

Mexico is in my country of birth and is in my culture. I understand the modus operandi, politically and developmentally. Having worked there for so many years in so many different projects. I have numerous contacts in the country and the resorts, including specialized realtors and development consultants, as well as Government officials. We have many other friends and connections in the country as well.

While I remain based in Tiburon, a suburb of San Francisco, California, I still own a home I designed myself in Mexico City, Casa Lila in Chimalistac.

Residential High-end in the USA

While my current focus on Residential High-end in the USA, and my background make me uniquely qualified as a consultant for developments in residential investments in the Mexican Resorts, as well as a very resourceful member of any team.

Lastly, we are not the best consultant for a specific project or goal in Mexico. We are though an excellent team member for developers who are new to the Mexican market, particularly with regards to construction and specially in High-end residential projects.

We welcome enquires for investments in real estate and development in the areas and hope we can be of assistance.


Thank you to my clients. I tremendously enjoyed the process.

Thank you for visiting!
