In 2000 Joey Shimoda, FAIA, FIIDA, and Susan Chang, AIA, founded Shimoda Design Group at a live/work warehouse in the burgeoning Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. The firm grew from inside to out, steadily gaining a reputation for innovative workplace interiors, history-conscious building renovations, and bold, forward-looking creative campuses.
SDG’s design professionals have themselves grown from inside to out, letting their love of creative collaboration infuse and inform the work they do all across the country. On each project, their eclectic sensibilities merge with a unique client culture for engaging, enlivening, transformative design. Extra superfino.
