Dorian Lytle heads up the Design/Build division of Flagg Coastal Homes. Dorian received his undergraduate degree in Finance from Northeastern University and his graduate degree in Architecture from The Newschool of Architecture and Design in San Diego. Dorian was both the class Valedictorian and also received AIA’s Henry Adams Medal for excellence. Dorian’s passion for architectural design started in Connecticut where as a young man, he worked for Ireland Architecture, drafting beach homes and coastal community projects. That experience allowed Dorian to draw upon the architectural aesthetics of the coastal Northeast that has translated so successfully to the resort community of Coronado. Regardless of style, location, or size, his design goal remains the same: create a family heirloom for generations to come.
