At Rachlin Architects, 80% of our commissions come from existing clients. Since 1982, we’ve paired imaginative design solutions with exceptional client service, providing comprehensive architectural and planning services throughout California from our Los Angeles headquarters.
Our diverse, integrated studio environment meets our clients’ needs with deep expertise in the full range of project design and delivery services:
- Needs assessment, planning, and programming
- Architecture and interior design
- Program and construction management
Design Principal Michael Rachlin, AIA, along with Management Principal Richard Ingrassia, AIA, oversees the development and delivery of each project, working closely with our clients from kickoff to close-out. Our moderate size allows for responsiveness and staffing depth, while fostering the highest level of creativity and craftsmanship on every project.
We design and nurture places of learning.
From new campuses to renovations, our portfolio of more than 250 K-14 projects for 16 public school districts in southern California stands as a testament to our expertise in, and understanding of, issues associated with learning facilities.
Learning environments have evolved more swiftly over the past decade than in the preceding 100 years. New classrooms and campuses must accommodate evolving teaching technologies and methods. For more than 20 years, Rachlin Architects has been transforming school campuses, working with school districts, principals, and teachers to create environments that will stimulate learning and remain relevant for decades to come. Above all, we provide Districts with facilities that celebrate the communities they serve.
Architects as construction managers.
Before the 1980s, architects typically served as the owner’s representative during construction, with full-time representation on the jobsite. We believe there is no one better qualified to represent the owner’s interests during construction than a licensed architect. As combined architect and program /construction manager, we are prepared to direct and coordinate the District’s project team from feasibility and planning to project closeout.
Our tools include design guidelines and standards, budgets and cash flow analyses, and procurement management services, all of which have been selected for simplicity and transparency. They can all be adapted for the District’s future endeavors.
We believe in designing processes and systems that will fulfill the goals of your project while streamlining the experience.>> NEXT
