A graduate of the University of the Philippines, Nina Santamaria is the Principal Designer of Grupo Santamaria. Grupo Santamaria has been in the industry for a decade—with a commitment to design that improves life. They commit to this by improving the spaces where life happens.

As a child, Nina has always been into the arts. She believes that this appreciation of art at an early age has molded her love for interior design and architecture. Armed with an in-depth observation, creativity, and insight, Nina considers marrying the technical and aesthetic aspects of space as well as working with a budget as the biggest challenges of being into interior design.

To keep her creative juices flowing, she makes it a point to travel and surf from time to time. Her dream project can be anything from a family home to a national museum. She sees this as a possibility as long as the trust is strong between client, builder, and designer and designs are carried out perfectly according to plan.
