Los Angeles-based Montalba Architects' Contextual Design

30 Mar 2011

The acclaimed Southern California studio produces well-considered, conceptual design solutions

Montalba Architects, Inc. is an award-winning practice, producing select architecture and urban design-related projects in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.

By embracing a humanistic approach that considers not only a client's needs and site considerations, but also the cultural and economic environment, solutions are realized that are contextual, yet conceptual and visionary in their intent, effect and appeal.

Their projects emphasize conceptual experience by creating environments that are both socially responsive and aesthetically progressive. Material integrity, the sculpting of natural light, and the purity of spatial volumes create solutions to the pragmatic requirements of the client, constructability and context.

The depth of its work, innovative perspective and collaborative approach highlight Montalba Architects' emphasis on design-oriented architectural practice. Montalba Architects has compiled an acclaimed and diverse collection of projects ranging in scale from commercial office interiors to residential homes, from retail stores to mixed-use buildings and masterplanning.

As founder and principal of Montalba Architects, David Montalba is acting design principal on each project. David and the architectural staff - whose individuality, diverse experiences and design excellence contribute to the creativity and energy of the team - work in close collaboration, which
enables creative solutions to emerge and be refined.
