Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of the most exciting cities in the world; our studio, motivated by that energy, is creating some of the most impactful design in southern California. With a multidisciplinary team of architects, interior designers, engineers, and other specialists, we seek to together create purposeful, beautiful design that has a positive effect on people and places—from award-winning sustainable design for forward-thinking higher education institutions to ground-breaking solutions for healthcare clients to cultural destinations that connect and invigorate our neighborhoods.

We are located in Santa Monica, amidst great restaurants, shops, galleries, and of course, just minutes from the ocean and the famous Santa Monica pier. With a five-minute walk to the 17th Street Expo Line station and a six-minute ride to the beach, early morning surfing, beach volleyball and yoga, and happy hours at sunset come with the job.

Euclid Gallery

Our office includes a gallery space that we offer to Los Angeles area artists and gallerists for special projects and events. Euclid Gallery provides an opportunity for works of art by Los Angeles artists to enter into a dialogue with HGA Architects and the community at large, enriching the experience of living and working in our great city.

Community Action

Giving back is important to us, in particular through holistic partnerships with organizations like the Venice Family Clinic and Venice Arts, which allow us to serve multiple needs for the organizations from design services to volunteering at events to mentoring young artists. We also engage with HGA-wide campaigns like United Giving, supporting health-related research through Movember and Wear Pink and Red days, and much more.
