P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S is a leading architectural practice based in Los Angeles, California. We bring a critical and progressive approach to projects across scales, agendas and geographies, insisting on the cultural and social relevance of architectural form and aesthetics in the contemporary city.

P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S is led by partners Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich, and gained international recognition as one of the most intriguing and progressive firms working in architecture today. Based on the expansive city of Los Angeles, we take advantage of the city’s decidedly global stance and idiosyncratic identity. With more than 15 years of building experience, we have completed projects in the US, South America and Asia.

P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S specializes in architectural design across scales and contexts: from small objects and temporary installations to large buildings and extra-large masterplans; from dense urban cores to exotic idyllic islands. 

As a result, we aim to create original projects that are both unique and accessible, forward looking and contextual, distinctly contemporary in their formal and material aesthetics and unapologetically timeless in their functional and spatial performance.

Our creative process involves an analytical approach to the specifics of each project, client and context, an imaginative philosophy and unique sensibility to design architectural and urban form and a sophisticated technological solution to its construction and material tectonics. Experience in collaboration with consultants in diverse fields ranging from economic advisors, land use attorneys, to structural engineering and material fabrication allows us to produce increasingly unique projects locally and abroad.

By deploying both pragmatism and imagination during all steps of design, the singularity of our architectural approach is that we can fluidly integrate speculative thinking with an efficient production and delivery. Our vast experience in designing and building architecture worldwide enable us to create projects that maintain a refined balance between theoretical and aesthetic concerns, contemporary demands and long lasting values such as functionality and organization. By closely working with clients, we ensure that their vision is materialized in the most progressive and realistic way, so our final design is both distinctive and sustainable, providing their brands worldwide visibility and recognition.
