Our story

SAA is a Los Angeles-based architecture firm that offers a wide range of services to public and private clients. We specialize in architecture that is sustainable, economical and site specific. The firm’s current staff of twelve comes from diverse backgrounds, including architecture, computer modeling, green architecture, infrastructure planning, interior design and the visual arts. SAA has LEED accredited professionals on staff.

The mission in every project is to exceed our client’s expectations. Our first step is to understand our client’s objectives and identify their goals in the short and long term. Excellent design is a result of listening to the client, budget, the community and the users. Our current projects include hotels, restaurants, academic/university projects, health care, and mixed-use housing.


We are members of the American Institute of Architects, the USGBC, the ICBO and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards [NCARB]. We are licensed in the states of California, Florida, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Michigan,


We also provide services for interior space planning and design; cost feasibility studies; site selection, analysis and use; urban design; architectural restoration, LEED analysis and graphic design.


Technical services are an exceptional niche of SAA. We provide services for Building Information Modeling (BIM), code research, peer review and shop drawings. SAA was founded by Jeffrey Stenfors in June of 2005.
