Steinberg Hart and Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture Combine to Elevate Design, Expand Opportunities and Strengthen Client Relationships

November 18, 2019


In a move that unites the creative energies of two award-winning legacy firms, Los Angeles-based Steinberg Hart and Manhattan-based Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture are joining forces to deliver greater creativity and insights across a wider range of markets and project types. This combination creates a national architecture firm with shared values, vibrant design cultures and complementary expertise, enabling it to better serve clients, communities and campuses.

Steinberg Hart’s legacy is defined by its work with private developers, higher education and civic institutions on a variety of large-scale, complex projects across California and Asia. Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture is lauded for creating inspiring arts, cultural, civic and academic buildings across the United States. Coming together under the Steinberg Hart banner enables the combined firm to explore new opportunities and set higher standards for design excellence, especially as these various market sectors become more interwoven.

“Evolution, exploration and a commitment to originality is what drives design forward. It’s this creative mindset that excites us about coming to work every day, and it’s a philosophy we know the Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture team shares,” said Steinberg Hart President and CEO David Hart, AIA, LEED AP. “In uniting, we recognized that our teams are stronger together than apart, as it would have taken us each decades to organically develop the talent and capabilities that we now have access to on a national scale.”

Steinberg Hart and Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture share the fundamental belief that architecture and design play a critical role in shaping communities, and each firm’s design ethos prioritizes the human experience above all else. Joining forces provides the team with the opportunity to work collaboratively on projects of all types and sizes and to challenge each other to design unique spaces that endure in people’s memories.

“Joining forces with Steinberg Hart enhances our national expertise in the arts, civic, and higher education projects with expanded resources, more offices and greater technical capabilities”, said Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture Partner Douglas Moss, AIA, LEED AP. “This provides continuity for our current clients while expanding design possibilities and providing unique opportunities for our staff.”

The partnership between Steinberg Hart and Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture is also reflective of the deep and longstanding relationships between the senior leadership of both firms, all of whom will remain actively engaged in the business. This history dates back more than 30 years, with many of the principals having worked together at previous firms including Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. The teams have carefully planned the integration to make it seamless for clients and employees.

Rob Steinberg, FAIA, Chairman of Steinberg Hart, commented: “We believe architecture is a social art that must be nurtured and cultivated to inspire the best creations. Blending our exceptional talent and establishing an infrastructure that enables us to work anywhere in the United States positions us to advance our craft without limitations, creating designs that enrich peoples’ lives.”

Steinberg Hart now comprises more than 150 architecture and design professionals situated across six offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, New York and Shanghai. These teams have led the design on a number of award-winning projects that shape the way people live and learn, including:

Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture Partner Malcolm Holzman, FAIA, added, “With Steinberg Hart, we look forward to digging along the vein of architecture we have worked for five decades. Architecture with ethos, gravitas, heart and the full dimension that only design excellence provides.”

Clients of both firms can expect the same high levels of enthusiasm, professionalism and service they are accustomed to. This strategic partnership is indicative of Steinberg Hart’s continued evolution and commitment to accelerating the pace of positive industry change, which has helped it rank no. 23 on Architect Magazine’s 2019 Architect 50 list.
