FSY Architects Inc.
From feasibility to construction, FSY as master architect provides a full suite of integrated design services that push the boundaries of excellence. With over 50 years of combined expertise at the leadership level, and a cosmopolitan team of architects, designers, consultants and builders, FSY’s ethos lies in leading design, crafting space and constructing buildings that inquire, explore and go beyond the remit of compliance.
An international Firm based in Los Angeles, FSY is a leader in sustainable design practices that consistently challenge the status quo. Design and construction that embraces community, respects place and gives back to the environment is at the core of FSY’s design philosophy. To this end, a list of LEED Platinum, Gold and Silver projects stipple FSY’s award winning portfolio.
Experts in Performing Arts and Entertainment venues as well as multi-faceted housing in both the new and adaptive re-use spectrums, FSY’s scope spans across sectors to include cultural, educational, urban planning and interiors for public, non-profit and institutional clients. Designing within a studio environment that stimulates respect for cross-cultural ideologies, and where a finite balance between challenging needs and design excellence is sort, a sincere discourse between client, user, and design consultant is maintained.
The Firm’s design process is based on the notion of seamless transition from concept to commissioning which is seminal to the success of each project. A team of savvy technologists working in Building Information Modeling (BIM) for many years now, provide efficiency and ease to the creative process—ultimately adding value to the project and providing cost benefit to the client.
As the Practice embarks on establishing a research arm at its newly built premises—designed, constructed and owned by FSY Inc., the Firm’s philosophy gains new ground. An investigative approach to the issues of the 21st century such as climate change, technology and social and environmental justice as well as regional matters such as water conservation, shelter for the homeless and a small building footprint for a new and emerging demographic, is of paramount importance.
