Studio AR&D Architects is an innovative Architecture, Design & Construction firm with offices based out of two locations: Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California. Their firm was founded on the belief that architecture has the capacity to help shape one’s experience. Their projects, big or small, public or private, high-end or low-income, all engage the public in a meaningful, poetic way and leave a lasting impression.
