At Frederick Fisher and Partners, our mission is simple—improve life through architecture. Known for cultivating and enriching living, learning, and working spaces for some of the world’s most prestigious educational, cultural, and civic institutions, we have committed our practice to enhancing the passion and energy of communities and organizations of all kinds. Guided by four pillars—Process, Context, Function, and Aesthetics—FF&P engages in our design work thoughtfully and thoroughly. While our architecture reflects the rich variety of the clients and communities we serve, our ethos emphasizes clean elegance, domesticity, and delight. In everything we create, we strive to integrate innovation and collaboration, beauty and authenticity, buildability and sustainability, and a broad cultural perspective. Our diverse, award-winning projects share a common approach of connecting people to their environments and each other.
In addition to competitive salaries, benefits, 401K options, and paid vacation time, FF&P prides itself on its special office culture. We are a team that truly cares about our work and each other, and we value inclusion, respect, and camaraderie. While we strive for cohesion across our LA and New York studios, we also believe everyone’s voice matters. Lifelong learning is a priority, and we encourage our talented staff to share their knowledge and interests.
