Emilio Fernandez founded Stallsmith Fernandez Architects (SFA) in 1967 on the simple premise that each client deserves a high degree of personal service, and each project the search to find the “right” design solution, both artistically, and technically. The patron of our firm, he exemplifies the modern Master-Architect philosophy of eminent responsibility for the “whole” solution, and for the life of the building. These beliefs permeate the Elevar culture even more strongly, 50-years later.
