Legacy

Architecture is a shared endeavor.

Since its inception in 1949, Mosher and Drew, Architects early work was primarily commissions in La Jolla ranging from garage remodels, additions, signage, fencing, storefronts, houses, and any other work they were able to secure. Notable clientele such as Gordon Gray, Herbert Kunzel, and James Copley soon became patrons of their innovative designs, garnering attention from national publications.

“The firm believes that superior architecture when practiced with integrity, is capable of contributing to the higher aspirations of man and to the improvement and protection of the environment” – Robert Mosher.
 
“For many years, there was a small sign mounted over the entrance to the drafting room which read: ‘We believe that the environment should reflect the warmth and unique quality of the human spirit. To the degree that man can accomplish this aim, so will he expand his total resources in our complex contemporary world.’” – Robert Mosher
