Los Angeles, CA
Corsini Stark Architects was established in 1999 and is committed to architectural practice at the highest level: responsive to cultural and physical context, sensitive to historical and environmental resources, and attuned to the collaboration necessary for complex endeavors. Corsini Stark Architects strives to seamlessly integrate building and site, form and space, light and material, style and use.
Corsini Stark Architects is a small full-service firm with experience in joint ventures and design/executive architect relationships, giving clients the best of both worlds: the small office advantage of principal involvement in all aspects of a project, and large office capacity for project delivery.
Principals Richard Corsini, AIA, and Anthony Stark, RA, have cumulatively over thirty-two years of independent professional practice. Their experience includes urban design, master planning, office and mixed-use projects, college and university facilities, multi-family housing, retail stores and entertainment complexes, restaurants, commercial interiors, and distinguished custom homes.
The firm has developed a reputation for skillfully combining new construction with historic buildings and districts, and integrating architectural and landscape design to achieve distinctive environments. Principal involvement in each phase of work is the cornerstone of the firm’s philosophy of quality control and client service. CSA excels in composing and leading outstanding teams of professionals, working with preservationists, sustainability consultants, and other disciplines specifically tailored for each project.
