SGAO (Sona Gevorkyan Architecture Office) is a Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary practice founded in 2015. We focus on residential, hospitality and commercial projects. We create functional yet beautiful environments for our clients.
We offer a uniquely tailored approach for each project; therefore, team sizes vary based on the complexity and expertise required.

“Becoming an architect was a natural choice, I've always been drawn to creative and analytical challenges. Merging of these two traits in architecture allows me to create spaces that evoke excitement, and harmony.
The journey of creating spaces is a therapy like no other; it's a career that has brought immense joy to my life; striving to enrich the lives of everyone, transcending disciplines from 2D graphics to small objects to Interior Design to Architecture to Landscape... and beyond.
SGAO was founded to create experiences, and not just enclosures. Our drive is to empower and motivate every occupant to be inspired and confident in the spaces we craft. Every project, no matter the constraints of budget and time, deserves to be thoughtfully mindful, and this is a creative and an analytical challenge.”
