The project is Cathay Bank’s new headquarters building in South El Monte. Christine Lampert acted as the owner’s Representative and Project Manager, working with the Architect of Record, Gensler. The multi-story project includes the executive offices on the eighth floor and a large cafeteria for over 300 employees on the fifth floor. The parking lot on the south side of the building has solar panels mounted on the shade structures to provide a portion of the electricity for the building.

Jack’s Surf Shop Huntington Beach
The original single-story brick building that was Jack’s Surf Shop was destroyed in an earthquake. The new multi-story project for Jack’s Surf Shop includes the Surf Shop and other retail and office spaces. The approval process for this very controversial project took over a year, but in the end, the project won approval from the City Council. The project won a PCBC award for the best commercial building under 100,000 square feet.

Interested in Lampert Dias Architects Designing Your Next Project?
My husband and I had a general concept as to how we wanted to remodel our 1950's style single story. Christine, Stephan and Erika have been exceedingly patient with us as we have gone through the process of figuring out exactly what we want. The design options they gave us were exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend!
Christine and Kristine have been amazing. They are very professional, patient and listen to what you want and need in your new home. This is our first remodel and have had so many questions and big decisions to make. I highly recommend them.
I have to say that I had reservations about working with another architect as the last one I had on a different project was more interested in making something in their style than mine and I felt like I was somewhat working against them, begging to be heard. NOT the case with Christine Lampert. I am 100% satisfied with my experience in so many ways. Christine is a brilliant architect with a huge portfolio of fantastic buildings in all styles. Our conversations are very productive (she KNOWS what she's talking about!) and she is readily available and responsive. I feel so lucky to have found her and I recommend her to anyone. Designing your dream home should be a joy and she has delivered that as well as a finished product that I can't wait to live in. Thank you Christine!
We found Lampert Dias Architects, Inc. 2 months ago. We purchased a single story house built in the 1940 and were looking for an architect that can incorporate the contemporary design elements we desired while still preserving the charm of the original home. Immediately, I was treated to a personal phone call from Christine Lampert. More than other architects we interviewed, Christine understood our ideas and was able to quickly come up with a design that made us feel our dream home can become a reality. Christine and her team were professional, courteous, responsive to our needs and have been a pleasure to work with. She was always available to answer any questions. Christine really listened to our needs and was able to translate those needs into a "dream home". We look forward to our finish project and would highly recommend them!
