Verse Design LA is committed to enduring architecture and responsible development; keystones to neighborhood growth and improvement.


It is with this conviction, we fuel our practice.

What We Do

Verse Design is a FULL SERVICE architectural and planning studio. With a large body of built work, we have the experience to take complex projects from inception to completion. We combine a broad spectrum of design and project management services offering flexibility to meet the unique requirements of each client. Our services are grounded in RESPECT and support for our clients' needs and aspirations, close collaboration with the most qualified consultants and builders, an ongoing pursuit of knowledge, all bolstered by strong project management. DEDICATION to design and exceptional services are the core values of the firm.

How we work

From the inception of an idea to the physical realization of the work, Verse Design adopts a highly COLLABORATIVE design process. One that focuses on a close relationship with our clients, resulting in an in-depth understanding of the client’s needs, is informed by working with our well established professional consulting teams and ultimately formed through the organization of space, material, color, light and structure.

Our Approach

We employ a RIGOROUS investigative approach to our work. While working on small scale renovations, new state of the art buildings, or intricate master planning, our research-based design process derives SPATIAL INNOVATION, seeking uncommon solutions within the common.

Our cultivated office culture is contagious. For us, productivity occurs in the intersection of what we are good at and what we enjoy. Our work ethic reflects our love for the work as much as our respect for our very own team. Los Angeles is a hub for innovation and culture that keeps us relevant and connected. The downtown LA Theater District is our home base, but our studio feels more mobile every day. We fly to our out-of-town projects for in-person meetings as often as we engage and collaborate over online meetings. LA allows us to be local and global, but also grounded and alert, keeping us knowledgeable and sensitive.
