Founded by award-winning architect and interior designer Pablo Serna in 2018, Lost Pines Architecture has more than 20 years of experience in residential/light commercial mixed use development in the Central Texas region.


As the area east of Austin experiences rapid growth, Pablo wanted to establish a regional presence to announce professional architectural services based in the city of Bastrop.  The "Lost Pines" refer to a forest of loblolly pine trees near the Bastrop State Park, that is separated almost 100 miles west of the species natural range.

Lost Pines Architecture has an integrated design process that encourages collaboration early on with all stakeholders to explore issues such as constructability, site restrictions, budget, and scheduling goals. Each project is a unique opportunity to explore creative and thoughtful solutions that are site specific, energy efficient, and architecturally sublime.

The goal is to develop timeless design solutions that are a fusion of beauty, service, and function that enhance both the building area and the experience of its occupants.
