Background

 

  • Schooled in Architecture, (UA) and trained for several years under Charles Angyal FAIA, (a LEED Founding Member) T.E. McCarthy of Forma Design Group has been actively designing and building both residential and commercial structures, since 1987.

 

  • Though most works have primarily been located in Venice and the Westside of Los Angeles, we have also compledted projects in New York, San Francisoco and Baja.

  • Projects include artist studios, galleries, and residences, a LEED Platinum home in the Palisades, as well as a restaurant on the Lower East Side, and a unique milliner's shop in Venice.

 

  • Our Clients are usually based on compatibility and practicality rather than scope and budget.

 

  • Our design and construction practices have always been environmentally sensitive well before it was fashionable. 

 

  • All of our past projects have been successfully completed with many repeating clients who often become close friends, because life is too short for anything else.

 

  • FDG services encompass not only the design but also encompass all phases of building permitting, contract documentation and project management phases, as needed/required.

 

  • Traditionally speaking, there is not a single style to which FDG ahears but instead we approach each project on an individual basis, tailor-made to client and the needs of the site.
