LOS ANGELES—Boston architectural and design firm Bergmeyer has opened its office in Los Angeles, bringing its philosophy of creating distinctive user experiences to the West Coast.
“Our company culture is founded on innovation, entrepreneurship and an open-minded approach; principles that cutting-edge West Coast cities, like Los Angeles, embody,” said Bergmeyer President Mike Davis, FAIA, LEED AP. “Putting down roots in downtown LA allows us to formally expand our service area within a region that is a hotbed of creativity.”
The 90-plus-person architecture, interiors, graphics and brand strategy design firm works with national and international clients across a variety of market sectors, including retail, workplace, commercial, education, restaurant, hospitality and residential, in addition to serving notable California corporations.
Recently for California Closets, Bergmeyer created a uniquely branded showroom experience, designing both its Richmond, CA headquarters, and its current San Francisco flagship, while also establishing prototype standards for implementation across the United States. Bergmeyer also designed the flagship for the San Francisco 49ers Team Store at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Recently completed and in-progress West Coast projects are varied and include new store locations for retailers Arc’teryx and lululemon, a creative workspace in Manhattan Beach, a multi-family luxury project in Orange County, and a Wrangler pop-up at the iconic Fred Segal in West Hollywood.
“Design is about people—our clients and their clients, customers and constituencies,” said Bergmeyer Vice President Rachel Zsembery, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, an expert in experiential retail design. “From our new base in downtown Los Angeles, we can even more effectively, efficiently and meaningfully interface with clients in the Western United States and Canada.”
