Stayner Architects is a second-generation architecture firm located in Los Angeles, California. We are architects, designers, developers, and builders. We are hands-on and process-driven. We design for civic-minded clients in the public and private sectors. We engage critically with issues of finance, politics, and climate, and we have over forty years of experience working through projects with complex sites, stakeholders, and financing.

We have projects across the American West. We’ve developed an ethos and a design methodology that works across scales and building types. We work with clients, we develop our own projects, and we partner with other like-minded developers to realize work that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. We are licensed to practice architecture in CA, AZ, NM, TX, and HI. We are LEED AP certified, and licensed under California General Contractor License 553495.
