Killefer Flammang Architects (KFA)
KFA provides architecture, design, and master planning services for projects throughout the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area.
In 1975, Wade Killefer, FAIA founded the design-build firm that was to become Killefer Flammang Architects. Barbara Flammang, AIA joined him in 1980, and the firm designed its first library in 1983, first school in 1985, first affordable housing project in 1988, and first mixed-use residential project in 1990.
In the late 1990’s, KFA helped to spark the resurgence of the historic core in downtown Los Angeles. The firm designed the first three buildings under LA’s Adaptive Reuse Ordinance in the Old Bank District, and have since rehabilitated over 40 historic buildings throughout the City.
KFA has designed over 4,000 units of affordable housing in 57 different buildings for 27 different affordable housing developers in Los Angeles County. Twelve of these projects, containing over 1,000 units, are on Skid Row. KFA is currently designing 12 new affordable housing projects, bringing over 600 new units of housing for low-income individuals and families, including seniors, veterans, and the homeless.
