Welcome to Malibu Architecture + Design, by Lester Tobias, principal of Tobias Architecture.
This blog is devoted to all topics related to commercial and residential architectural design.
During the past twenty-seven years, Tobias Architecture has developed a reputation for:
Timeless design solutions based on vision, meaning and intellectual rigor.
Applying technical expertise on a project through knowledge of codes, familiarity with materials, integration of systems, accuracy of drawings, and experience in construction.
Maintaining a commitment to seeing every single project through to its completion, no matter how difficult the project or process may become. Over time, we have generated a unique portfolio of project size, type, and stylistic variation. We bring these qualities to each and every commission.
