Our Background

Peteris Architects, Inc. was established in 1996 and has served the Southern California community for over 24 years.  We are a full-service firm specializing in Commercial Buildings, Banks, Telecommunication Facilities, Tenant Improvements and all forms of Residential Design & Renovation.

Our work with corporate clients includes Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Wachovia, Verizon, Frontier Communications, AT&T, Southern California Edison, Disney, MTA and numerous commercial management firms such as Jones Lang LaSalle and CBRE.

Our Philosophy

Openly sharing and communicating ideas & concepts is the cornerstone of a successful project.  Our design philosophy dictates that all projects receive personal attention from principal architects. This method ensures enhanced service and thoroughness, which is critical to a successful Owner / Architect relationship.

We prioritize spatial interactions & activities to create efficient spaces that flow seamlessly and in dynamic fashion. This resulting vision, combined with creativity and extensive attention to detail, form the pallet that inspires our unique and personalized design language.

Our Process

The firm’s stress on research, imagination and design combines the most advanced construction techniques and materials resulting in buildings that are aesthetically pleasing, functionally efficient and in compliance with all regulatory codes.

Detailed plans clarify design intent which is essential for competitive bidding among contractors. All effort is extended to provide the most for your building dollar as well as a sound and lasting investment.

We recommend time-tested contractors for your bid list to insure comparable services and fees. We joint venture with select General Contractors for those requiring a “design/build” approach.
