Daniel Piechota earned a Bachelor of Architecture in 1987 from the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. While in college he spent a year studying in Denmark and upon graduation worked as a carpenter for Bart Prince.  An apprenticeship with Mickey Muennig followed where he participated in several projects including the design and construction of the iconic Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California.

Prior to forming SPA, Daniel owned a practice in Los Angeles where he established a reputation for design that conveys a modern sensibility without sacrificing warmth and livability.
