Studio

Located in Old Pasadena, Gonzalez Goodale Architects occupies a building of its own design. Through its integration into Pasadena's pedestrian alleyways, its usable urban landscaping, public art, and day-lit studios, the building reflects the firm's philosophy of design for the functional and poetic enrichment of the public life.
