Founded in 1988, Studio Pali Fekete Architects (SPF:a) is a Los Angeles based architecture firm specializing in clients and projects that require a high level of design sensitivity, technical expertise, and hands-on principal involvement. The studio houses an award-winning design team, and an accomplished technical documentation workshop. Architect experience ranges from entry-level to over 25 years.
SPF:a design awards range from Architecture Magazine’s Home of the Year Award (2003) to the AlA National Honor Award  for the design of the Somis Hay Barn. SPF:a built projects include education, preservation, single and multi-family residential, institutional, commercial, and health care facilities. Current projects are the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills and custom residences in Malibu, Beverly Hills, and Los Angeles.
The SPF:a team is energetic, cooperative, diverse, and committed to creating contemporary architecture.
While the world of architecture these days often seems like a place of fads, fashion and formalism, SPF:a is less interested in theoretical issues than we are in the basic factors that define how space is made, how light is harnessed, how a building’s mechanical system works, how materials join together, and so on.
While this may sound ordinary, our work is testament to the fact that SPF:a continually attempts and succeeds in the reinvention, re-tooling, and re-thinking of predictable solutions while balancing the tried and true elements if what makes sense for a building.
