Standard® Architecture | Design is the Los Angeles based architecture and interior design partnership of architects Jeffrey Allsbrook and Silvia Kuhle. Our projects are guided by identity and culture, reflecting the narrative for which they’re designed. Conscious of architecture’s potential to communicate, from a way of living to a company’s image, our work aspires to provide the setting that expresses the idea.
Settling in Los Angeles after living in Europe and traveling extensively, our experience gives us a distinct perspective on building and site. It is a view that combines an elemental approach to architecture and an open relationship toward the environment. As our practice evolves, this perspective increasingly defines our work. Our projects start with a dialogue about program and purpose, and progress toward their own identity. At every scale, from furniture and interiors to architecture and urban planning, our architecture responds to fundamentals – space, light and materiality. We design from the inside out, in response to a project’s specific conditions and constraints. Views, light, proportion, orientation and materiality guide us to shape and organize volume. Context and terrain; movement through space; and thresholds of variable permeability are consistent themes.
