Xoring Balbes | XORIN HOMES

Roll2_135870ep002227-R2-068.jpg

“Being connected to how you’re feeling is a state of luxury. Luxury is about authenticity and not trying to impress anyone except yourself.”  -  Xorin Balbes, Designer

Award-winning architectural conservator, lauded designer, and philanthropist, Xorin Balbes discovered his passion and vision for the design and re-design process while renovating his first home in Santa Barbara.

Xorin harbors an impressive high-profile celebrity client list, and is also well known for his remarkable restorations of several architecturally significant properties in the Los Angeles area including the Sowden House, a 1926 Lloyd Wright; Talmadge Villa, the Los Feliz replica of a 17th century Italian villa and the former home of 1920s screen legend, Norma Talmadge, and the award-winning restoration of the 1926 Art Deco Security-First Pacific Bank.

 

Xorin’s impressive succession of re-designs and renovations encouraged him to develop his own philosophy for home design entitled, SoulSpace. The process was born out of Xorin’s discovery of a deeper purpose and meaning in his life, and his aspiration to share this deeper more soulful way of living with others.

XORIN'S PORTFOLIO HIGHLIGHTS

Xorin Balbes, an unparalleled innovator in the realm of home design, stands as a beacon of creativity and excellence. His visionary approach redefines the very essence of living spaces, pushing boundaries and setting new standards in Los Angeles, Montecito and Santa Barbara. With a portfolio that mesmerizes, Balbes is the epitome of unrivaled design expertise.
