Throughout his career he has combined a portfolio consisting of billions of dollars of major international commissions with his passion – beautifully designed and crafted modern luxury homes and commercial projects located around the southland, focused in Malibu.

The result of this rich résumé is a palette of skills and experience that no other architect can offer. Thompson possesses the ability to think large and extremely creatively, and is continually designing world class projects on the international stage. At the same time, he possesses a love of Malibu and LA, and a thorough knowledge of local idiosyncrasies, micro climates and micro cultures. He enjoys an understanding of local geology as well as, significantly, a proven ability to get local projects approved.

The result? Brent Thompson is both the master planner of Alpensia Resort Village in Korea, recently named host resort of the 2018 Winter Olympics, as well as Malibu’s Zuma Meadow Farm. The Farm is Malibu’s quintessential California farmhouse, a local favorite located in Bonsal Canyon and film set of the recent biopic of Elizabeth Taylor’s life and career. Modern luxury homes with a distinctly traditional feel.

Brent Thompson is expert in destination design: the master planning and architectural design of public places, including retail, resort, entertainment and town center destinations. Thompson has over twenty-five years of experience in architecture, concept design, master planning and urban design for a wide range of domestic and international clients, including every major entertainment company, with a rich portfolio of projects in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America. Thompson’s history is unique among architects. He was educated traditionally as an architect and planner, a course he followed in his first ten years of practice. He further had opportunity to live and work in Prague, where he was a founding partner of Architects’ Atelier Praha and refined his theoretical approach to architectural design. Upon his return to the United States two years later, he began a five year parenthesis, designing entertainment venues for most of Hollywood’s major studios. Entertainers are students of human psychology, and expert at the idioms of story telling and metaphors. Hollywood is extremely pragmatic in its approach, and places great emphasis on the “guest experience,” and Thompson emerged from that time a unique designer. Though now running a more traditional architecture and planning practice, he has learned to combine design theory with entertainment based pragmatism. His projects are media rich, multi-layered, metaphorical, expressive and culturally relevant. Perhaps more important, they work. He has throughout his varied career been involved in the pragmatic study of the way people use spaces, and the knowledge gained is the basis for each of his designs. He has further learned how to hear the vision of clients and to translate their vision into reality.
