DFH Architects About.png

DFH ARCHITECTS is an independent, award-winning architecture firm with over twenty years experience.

Founded by David Forbes Hibbert, we strive to blend artistic vision with sustainable design. We take a "big picture" approach with an emphasis on community values and sound project economics.

Because we have a high percentage of licensed architects, we are able to tackle difficult entitlements, zoning and building codes with ease. This has helped earn DFH Architects a strong network of loyal clients with projects all over the Southland, from the greater Los Angeles area to Long Beach and San Diego.

We offer full architectural services, from custom interiors to large-scale offices and housing projects. Some of our best-known work includes the Universal Music Headquarters in Santa Monica, the Skechers Headquarters in Manhattan Beach, the Whole Foods on Wilshire Boulevard and the k2LA Apartments in Koreatown.
