Overview


Abramson Teiger Architects designs sculptural and light-filled modern homes, institutional and cultural buildings, and commercial spaces. The firm specializes in contemporary designs that bring the legacy of Southern California mid-century architecture into the present day.

Headed by Trevor Abramson, FAIA, and Douglas Teiger, AIA, the award-winning Los Angeles firm designs dynamic structures of wood, glass, concrete, stone, and steel, with stripped-down forms and expansive windows that create a strong indoor/outdoor connection. Sustainability is central to the firm’s designs, which often incorporate new materials that promote thermal stability, bodies of water for evaporative cooling, and a strong focus on natural light.

Layers Volumes Light: Abramson Teiger Architects showcases 15 residential and institutional projects. Among them are the sculptural Sinnott residence, the featured home in ABC’s hit television show “Modern Family”; the soaring First Presbyterian Church in Encino, California, winner of multiple design awards from the American Institute of Architects; and compelling modern houses in California, Wyoming, and Ontario.
