313 Striving to continuously improve the human condition and respect the natural environment, Richard Best established his eponymous Los Angeles-based firm three decades ago, after receiving his master's degree from the University of California Los Angeles and apprenticing with world- renowned architect Charles W. Moore, FAIA. Specializing in sustainable architecture, design, and planning, Richard Best Architect fosters an eco-conscious philosophy that emphasizes the LEED strategy of environmental, social, and economic prosperity. With a deep understanding of sustainability concepts and green technology, Richard Best Architect is also able to capitalize on the highest level of eco-driven planning and implementation—always with an eye towards fiscal responsibility and high aesthetics for the ultimate design- forward synergy. The firm's architectural design process utilizes three- dimensional modeling from the outset and throughout the process, making it easy for clients to visualize the design from both the exterior and interior. CAD-generated technical plans are created during the modeling phase to describe the construction and design intent, especially for contractors' use. The firm likewise always oversees the construction process to assure clients of a correct and accurate implementation of the design. a r c h i t e c t u r e RICHARD BEST ARCHITECT BEVERLY HILLS, CA
