SVA Continues to Grow as it Approaches its 15th Anniversary
Santa Ana, CA, June 1, 2018 – Just months after SVA Architects moved its Oakland office into a larger, contemporary space, SVA’s Orange County office has announced its recent move to accommodate its growth. The new space, located just across MacArthur Blvd. from its former location, is at 6 Hutton Centre Drive, Suite 1150, in Santa Ana. The move has almost doubled the Santa Ana office’s square footage in a sophisticated, highly amenitized high-rise. The firm employs more than 50 professionals throughout its offices in Santa Ana, Oakland, San Diego, and Honolulu. Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2018, SVA Architects has established itself as a regional leader for civic, educational, urban, and mixed-use projects.
SVA has become known as the design force behind numerous acclaimed and award-winning projects, including Celadon at 9th and Broadway in San Diego, La Escuelita Education Center in Oakland, and the Kamehameha Community Learning Center in Oahu. Current notable projects underway include:
– California Baptist University – SVA was recently selected to design a new, 1,000-bed student housing project on campus at CBU.
– Horner Middle School at Fremont Unified School District – Initially a modernization and minor expansion project, SVA realized that a completely new campus could be provided within the current budget, using some creative design and site development.
– Jordan Downs Phases 1A and 1B – One of the most significant projects in Los Angeles, this project will transform a distressed public housing development into a vibrant urban village of mixed-uses and mixed-incomes.
Robert Simons, AIA, President of SVA Architects, states, “At SVA, we believe in the power of ‘place’—it can encourage greater achievement and spur new opportunities. This move allows us to practice our philosophy, not just for our clients, but for ourselves as well. We now have the space to continue providing outstanding work to our clients, and with room to grow.”
