Andreas Gritschke and Liliana Ortiz founded GO:architecture as a client-focused architectural practice, addressing the challenges of and realizing the full potential of the California condition.


Their built work emphasizes thoughtfully conceived and executed projects in the realm of urban design, architecture and interior design. During their first ten years, they have realized projects of all scales in the areas of housing, education, retail, offices, recreation, culture and entertainment. High-end custom residences are the hallmark of GO:a. The firm's expertise in zoning and building code compliance has led to many feasibility study commissions and is an asset to all their projects, enabling a smooth process through agency approvals. The principals are actively involved with every aspect of the projects, which is particularly important to their clients, who value the depth of experience this lends to the project and the process. The firm maintains a small size and has established relationships with engineers, interior designers, contractors and other experts in the field in order to remain thorough and detail-oriented, which best serves the client and the project.


GO:a combines creativity and excellence in design with the demanding realities of construction budgets, scheduling and professional performance.
