Walker Workshop is a Los Angeles-based architecture firm established in 2010 with the purpose of creating modern structures that are warmly minimal with careful considerations of light, space, and the unique qualities of each project’s location. Our approach is also deeply rooted in craft and construction, with a rich awareness of the practical responsibility of making buildings.
