Grisafe Architecture is an architecture firm in Long Beach, CA that has been designing commercial and residential spaces throughout the City of Long Beach for more than 20 years. In that time, they’ve garnered quite a reputation for their innovative design as well as the level of service they provide to every client. But as we know, Long Beach is a large city, and when you include the nearby cities, like Seal Beach, Rossmoor, Los Alamitos, and Signal Hill, where Grisafe Architecture also works, the population reaches well over half a million people! In an area that populous, it can be difficult to get your name out there—especially as a small business.
Destination LA is trying to change that. Destination LA is a television series that highlights great small businesses throughout the Los Angeles area, with the goal of exposing viewers to hidden gems around their city that are impacting the local culture. Grisafe Architecture was recently chosen for a spotlight on Destination LA earlier this year.
In Season 3, Episode 12 of Destination LA, Grisafe Architecture was featured, along with several other Los Angeles-area small businesses. The feature on Grisafe Architecture included an interview with owner Mark Grisafe, who was able to offer his perspective on what sets Grisafe Architecture apart from other architecture firms in Long Beach, CA. Grisafe mentioned that his firm was one of the few in the area that does both residential and commercial architectural design. He also talked about how his firm works with many different general contractors in the area, which allows his firm’s clients to shop around for a general contractor that offers them the best price and service.
Viewers of the Destination LA episode were able to get a peek into Grisafe Architecture’s Long Beach office and even see a real-life example of one of their finished tenant improvement projects—Deep Blue Swim School in Long Beach.
Destination LA, Season 3, Episode 12 was shown on CBS-LA (KCBS Channel 2), as well as on IGTV. It is now a part of Roku’s permanent collection. You can view the Destination LA segment that features Grisafe Architecture on the company’s YouTube channel.
