Fentress Architects, an international design firm known for sustainable and iconic public architecture, is pleased to announce the new expansion of its Los Angeles office. The firm has 20 employees in its new 6,000-square-foot studio in L.A., complementing its total force of over 150 employees nationwide in San Jose, Denver and Washington, D.C.

“We have designed a number of landmark buildings in the Golden State, so expanding our office here is a natural progression for the firm,” said Curtis Fentress, Principal-in-Charge of Design at Fentress Architects. “California is an important gateway to the thriving Asia-Pacific region, and we have no doubt it will continue to play a vital role in the global economy.”

Fentress has designed some of the Golden State’s most prominent new public buildings, including:
