About Carole Wylie

I established Wylie Architecture • Planning • Interior Design, Inc in 1990. I am a Licensed Architect in the State of California, a Certified Interior Designer, and a LEED Accredited Professional. I have been a member of the Ramona Design Review Board for 18 years. I have also taught as an adjunct instructor at San Diego Mesa Community College.

I work with clients throughout the state of California, with emphasis on San Diego and the unincorporated areas of San Diego County.

My experience ranges from the architectural design of custom residential projects, commercial office buildings, restaurants, retail shopping centers, industrial parks, and small healthcare facilities, to complete construction documents, space planning, interior design, furniture specifications, and assistance with site analysis and land planning.

I take pride in not only the design process but following the project through every phase, including construction.

My projects are developed and explored through three-dimensional computer modeling, which can be shared with clients and consultants, to facilitate understanding of the project throughout the process.

My intent is to create appropriate buildings and spaces which exhibit a timeless quality. My designs are innovative, cost effective, and achievable within prescribed construction schedules. I take pride in not only the design process but following the project through every phase, including construction.

With the many decisions that must be made when building, having complete project guidance from the early drawing phase to the end of construction, is invaluable.

I am a native San Diegan whose family has an extensive history in San Diego, dating back to 1891 when my great-grandparents immigrated from Scotland

My great-grandfather, John Davidson, was the designer and caretaker of the gardens at the Hotel del Coronado. He was later commissioned by the owner of the Hotel to design and maintain a 40-acre parcel on the cliffs overlooking Mission Valley. Mission Cliff Gardens was known worldwide and considered San Diego’s first park, before Balboa Park was developed. You can still see the original garden wall that my great-grandfather built, at the intersection of Park Blvd. and Adams Ave.
