Steven Guban

Steven Guban is a practicing architect in Venice, CA. His firm, Guban Architecture, Inc., specializes in warm modern design, exploring sophisticated design solutions to enhance their client's lifestyles. The firm seeks to design and build spaces that are elegant and satisfying, focusing on clean and simple places to proudly be called home. As a native of northeast Ohio, family and friends have always been important, so creating atmosphere for entertaining and gathering are key to Steven's designs, including a strong connection with nature.

While in Ohio, Steven grew up surrounded by skilled contractors, plumbers, mechanics, painters, carpenters, electricians, that taught him how to build. The knowledge of the contractor language and his ability to assemble things, allow his designs to flourish in Los Angeles. Education and traveling added to the construction background, where he achieved an architecture degree from Ohio State and a Master's of Architecture from UCLA.

At Tree Academy, Steven teaches a weekly class on residential architecture and design. The course straddles the conceptual and aesthetics of the design world with the practicality of real-world constraints. Steven's work can be seen at
