The office, presently located in Claremont, was established
originally as John K. Grist / Architect reorganized
as Grist Associates.
John K. Grist, Architect, is a cum laude graduate of the
University of Southern California, a National Council of
Architecture Registration Board ( NCARB ) Certificate holder,
and past president of the Pasadena-Foothill Chapter, American
Institute of Architects ( AIA ).
The firm has had years of experience in providing
service to a wide range of clients, on a variety of project
types, in many of the southland's communities.
It is our normal practice to design each project to fit the client’s
preference. Consideration is also given to the requirements of the site, and local restrictions.
In the case of an alteration, or addition, to an existing
structure, our main goal is to incorporate existing design,
details, and materials so the resulting design is such
that the new work is a cohesive unit.
The common element in each project is not one particular
style, but rather a specific sense of proportion, spatial
relationships, and organization.
