Our History

In 1975, Digital Architecture (formerly DigitArch) was founded in Rome, Italy. In order to become more competitive, in 1980, a vision of further automation was born in order to speed up the design and drafting the phases of projects. While performing architectural services, the company launched its hardware and software divisions. Since the software was continually updated to reflect the needs of the in-house designers and draftsmen, it grew to be a very efficient product.

In 1983, Fardad Farhat began to collaborate with DigitArch and in 1984 established the Digital Architecture concept in the United States. Software development continued in Rome while the architectural efforts germinated in the United States.

In 1987, DigitArch partnered up with Langenheim & Associates, welcoming the world renowned Architect, James H. Langenheim to the organization. Jim, elevated the quality of the company's designs and taught a culture of excellence in the work place. In design, he embraced the philosophy "flexibility without compromise" as the way to serve the ultimate good of the projects. Until the 2 weeks before his passing Jim taught Sunday school, and passed away in 2010 at the enviable age of 90. Still today, his legacy continues to drive the company. In 1987, the first project Jim and Fardad collaborated on was the Spelling Mansion in Los Angeles, CA.

In 1999, the firm ventured into the world of virtual reality. With a software house to support it, they produced advanced 3D imagery for enhanced client communications.

In 2003, Digital Architecture entered the light construction industry, building projects under $3M and teamed up with R.M. Dalton for the construction of the larger projects. Digital Architecture began to offer "No Change Order" construction bids, which allows developers to add 3% to 10% to their bottom-line.
