URAStudio is an architecture and design firm set up in Los Angeles in 1995.
Our body of work spans a broad range of scales and typologies from residential, hospitality, retail, workplace environments to yacht interiors.
All our projects are supported by our furniture, products, art and sculptures.
We work with a core design team that lead each project through several strategy led stages.
They are supported with professional collaborators to deliver the highest quality of innovative design and service.
We research and create methodologies and design strategies to give answers to the needs of contemporary life. We create designs that are sensitive to basic human needs and enhance a fuller sense of being and living.
Our poetic approach is an expression of an optimum balance between form, material, space and place. Our place and situation based tailored approach is cultivated and reflected in the diverse spectrum of our work.
Our core design team is supported by our extended collaborative design studio Form-Union
