High-End Single-Family Residential Designer (6-8 years experience)

LUNO Design Studio
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Added on: 12 Jul 2023, Job offer expires on: 30 Nov 2023

At LUNO Design Studio, we believe great design is a response. A response to dreams and desires. To emotions and ideas. Great design is a response to the balance between form and function, the infinity of imagination, and the limitations of the environment. To be responsive is to be agile and adapt. Responsiveness begins with listening and succeeds by working together to create something new.

Collaboration is at the core of LUNO Design Studio. Every step of our process begins with a conversation. Our designs are the result of the relationship that forms. We find strength in duality. The interplay of interior and exterior spaces. The mixing of modern and classical. The process of resolving two halves as a whole. LUNO itself is the harmony that arises from our co-founders opposing views. Contrasting palettes and sensibilities that combine to form something holistic. Our signature.

As an emerging firm that specializes in high-end single-family residential projects, our ideal candidate is not bound by a single style. You are a student of architectural history, sourcing inspiration from Los Angeles’s past and fantasies of Hollywood. You create sustainably with the intention to last. Your portfolio is varied with a bold vision to enhance our city. You see our clients as patrons and are motivated by purpose rather than looking to fit in. You understand that design is a response and value collaboration.
