The space we love is unwilling to remain permanently enclosed. It deploys and appears to move elsewhere without difficulty; into other times, and on different planes of dream and memory.
— Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
We are Fleetwood Fernandez, a Los Angeles based architecture firm and creative studio. Around a really large desk and often an even larger lunch, we design understated buildings, interiors and furniture. Our projects weave the natural environment into the built, and examine the ways in which architecture alters not only our memory, but our actions. Accordingly, we see architecture as a platform for examining the narrative that is unique to each project, a dialog by which each client can create their own way of living. With an economy of form and line, we design projects from the inside out, focusing on daily rituals of use to drive the design process from detail to building form.
The studio, founded in 2007 by partners Hunter Fleetwood and Mariapaz Fernandez, has completed residential, hospitality, and institutional projects throughout the United States. Recent work includes the headquarters for a private hedge fund in Los Angeles, multiple restaurants, and single-family residences in Los Angeles, New York, and Haiti. Our work has been recognized with many publications and awards, including several AIA Los Angeles Restaurant Design Awards, 2019 Interior Design Best of Year honoree, Architect Magazine 2014 National Design Review Winner, and 2010 AIA Los Angeles Next LA Award. Both partners are licensed architects in California, and Hunter also holds a license in New York.
