We have reached the final stages- only steps and plantings remain. Really looking forward to getting some amazing photos once this one is complete. Can you imagine- photos at dusk with the view beyond, so beautiful.
Construction is underway at our change of use- warehouse to creative office project located in the LA Arts District. Exciting stuff!
architecture is not a fast moving process, which is why sometimes you have to nudge it slightly. while we're waiting for the plantings to go in around the cabin to get the perfect photos I decided to get a 3D printed model of the structure with the help of Kapow 3D. We're really happy with how it turned out and who doesn't want another model around the office! Looking forward to 3D printing more objects in the future.
within the last 2 weeks we have permitted two projects. we are really looking forward to them taking shape. let's get going!
Our Topanga Cabin/Office/Mini-Structure is oh SO close to completion that it's hard to avoid sharing this photograph. As unbelievable as this California rain has been, it's definitely added a new layer to view our surroundings. No longer is Topanga brown and dry, but bright green and full of lush vegetation- almost foreign seeming. Sometimes there is nothing better than a good layer of mist to help you rediscover what you are already so familiar with.
our condo project is complete. clean and contemporary for a retired couple downsizing into an amazing space. shout out to jencor construction who did an amazing job!
Proposed interior office block- one of many including editing bays, conference rooms and private spaces. Project is getting ready for permit submittal and bid. We're getting closer!
We took a quick trip this weekend to Brooklyn in order to photograph our most recently completed project. Click -here- for more images! We are really happy with how this one turned out- storage galore in a NY apartment!
Sneak peak at our nearly completed cabin in Topanga! Really loving the redwood tones and looking forward to it graying out gracefully.
another project with an amazing view. looking forward to designing an exterior dining level in studio city. this project will reference the language of the existing home which was designed by former apprentice of frank lloyd wright, james de long.
Sometimes there is nothing better than spending an elongated amount of time in a space to truly understand it. Last week I was lucky enough to work remotely in the space of our warehouse renovation. Such a beautiful space with so many opportunities.
our mini-structure located in topanga is currently under construction. framing is nearly complete. sheathing and roof comes next...
The demolition has started in our Brooklyn project. Looking good and about to look better!
new project to renovate an existing kitchen located in brooklyn, ny. it's time to design some options and spec fixtures and finishes! This one has a quick timeline but we're happy to have the opportunity to work in our old city.
we will be working on the renovation of an existing 10,400 sq ft warehouse building in the arts district- downtown los angeles. the scope includes converting the building into a new gallery and office space. stay tuned as we move through the design phase. we are excited about this one and we get to work with bittoni architects!
Spent Saturday wandering around the LA convention center for the 2016 Dwell on Design event. I was introduced to many new products and information. Now to start reading all of the free periodicals and integrating the new knowledge into the upcoming projects.
Our Topanga mini-structure project is starting construction this week. Once completed, this is the view that will be captured by the large picture window above the desk. Looking forward to this project taking shape!
Photo editing is completed and I'm finally posting the images today for our East LA project. We're pretty excited about how it turned out- warm, cozy, comfortable and open.

Our East LA project is near completion! The remainder of the millwork goes in this week and final photos to follow. Exciting stuff!
