Los Angeles, CA
an architecture office founded by Jeffrey Inaba that specializes in an
analytical approach to form making and building. The firm applies a
creative method of problem solving to define a project’s objectives and
identify unique formal options that can be realized with a high degree
of design resolution. This stems from the practice’s broader philosophy
to grasp the depths of a problem and once it is appraised, to provide
clients with findings that assist in making better-informed decisions
during planning, design and realization phases.
analysis-based approach is the foundation for its strategy and content
services, including urban planning advising for Al Ghurair Development,
University of Miami, the City of Miami, and the Urban Design Institute
of Korea; editorial development and media design for the Public Art Fund
and the Pacific Foundation; and creative development for Axe Body
Spray, Microsoft, Coca Cola and Nissan Infiniti.
commitment to insight, creative thinking and careful execution
underscore the firm’s approach to architecture projects. INABA

environment into comprehensively designed artifacts, including those for
