WORKING WITH FoxLin ARCHITECTS
At Foxlin, we aspire to turn YOUR ideas into reality. What separates us is that we truly listen to you. We work hard to understand what it is you want and provide you options to let you visualize your dreams. In the end, it is your architecture, not ours and we work to be your architectural voice. We understand that architecture is an expensive and very important endeavor to each and every client and choosing the right architect is part of that decision. We will help you to understand the feasibility and reality of your dreams including all aspects of an architectural project from planning, design, budget and a timeline. Each and every project we take on is important to us as well. We are a very intentionally small office and pride ourselves on “Principal” involvement at every stage of every project.
The principals, Juintow Lin and Michael Fox met at MIT almost 20 years ago in architecture school. After graduation, they went their separate ways as Juintow went to London and Michael to New York. Both relocated to Los Angeles in 2003 to start their lives together and in 2005, they opened the office of FoxLin in Venice, CA. The office began with a few select residential projects each year to build their foundations as a small office. Their Bubbles Installation won an AIA-LA honor award in 2006 and was published widely. In 2008, the office relocated to Southern Orange County and now has developed into a full-service architectural office with projects at all scales in all parts of the greater Los Angeles area as well as internationally in China and Israel.
The partnership of Fox Lin combines the “sustainable” expertise of Juintow Lin with the “technological” expertise of Michael Fox to formulate a truly optimistic outlook on the integration of technology and architecture. Our design is a balance of ambitions providing solutions that will satisfy your needs with a contextual, artistic and functional integrity.
