In the heart of downtown Culver City, CA, a team of award winning, dynamic Architects-Thinkers-Designers are making many prestigious clients very happy in their quest for inspired modern living in architectural homes. Abramson Teiger Architects is led by Trevor Abramson, AIA, and Douglas Teiger, AIA, who strive for a constant balance of practical needs and dramatic artistic expression. The principals treat every project as an exercise in collaboration, with the client's design, scheduling and financial goals at the center of all consideration, while unearthing the provocative symbiosis between architectural integrity and home tranquility.
The touchstone of the firm's design philosophy lies within the exploration of modernism and how it can inspire the people who dwell and work in architectural homes. Their architecture does not simply rest on clean exact lines resonating order and starkness, but integrates light and air within structured spaces of material and form. The result is space that flows, merging function and form without prejudice to indoors vs. outdoors.
Rooted in the Bauhaus, and evolved into Modern Southern Californian Lifestyle, the firm's design concepts use subtle and stripped down forms and shapes, allowing the simplicity of mass and its material to govern. Light is used to modulate surfaces, and when possible, the designs diminish walls and expand glass. Across all functions and applications, the result is visually dynamic architecture, which opens dramatically to expansive views and vistas, evokes a sense of peace, sanctuary, productivity and celebrates the "Home as the Ultimate Retreat".
Abramson Teiger Architects received the highest design award given by The American Institute of Architects, The National Honor Award as well as three AIA design excellence awards for its design of the First Presbyterian Church of Encino. In addition, for its design excellence, the firm has been recognized with numerous other awards, has been featured on Home Tours and has been published in more than 145 magazines and books.
