    Hollywood Hills Residence

The property has amazing views of the Hollywood sign to the east and the ocean to the west. The new gabled second story bedroom wing cantilevers beyond the existing metal clad rancher, providing shade for the…

    A music producer approached Soler Architecture with an idea: Create a world class recording facility atop a pristine mountain resort. Unlike our previous LA-based music studios, this project offered the unique opportunity to explore the relationship between sound and form without the limitations of an urban setting. Local geodes inspired the building’s form. The dark…

    Riggs Place

    Construction of this new, 6,500-square-foot residence in the Westchester section of Los Angeles required innovative techniques and sophisticated detailing. An L-shaped plan embraces the pool and opens the rear of the house to the expansive yard and territorial views of the city and mountains beyond.

    Haagen Company

    The Haagen Company approached Soler Architecture + Design to create their new headquarters in an existing one-story brick warehouse in West Los Angeles. With rooftop parking, this 8,800-square-foot commercial space was a challenge as we had to work with a grid of concrete columns and limited windows. The office successfully combines warehouse style with mid-century…

    With stunning panoramic views over the San Fernando Valley near Mulholland Drive, our clients’ existing 1960s-era ranch house sits atop a flat pad.

We designed…

    Soler Architecture + Design converted the existing side-by-side duplex into a single-family home on a tight budget. The main strategy for the conversion was the separation of the public spaces from the more private, and the blurring of the interior and exterior spaces. The ceiling of the loft-like main living area unites the dining, kitchen…

The juxtaposition of the old and new elements in the house is bridged by the use of materials, natural light and views, blending the elements together. The main thrust of the project was the creation of…

    Windsor Square

    Several terrible additions and remodels over its history victimized this 1920s traditional house in Windsor Square. Drawing inspiration from the intact details from the 1920s, the house was re-imagined as it should have been. The final product is a mixture of traditional details, yet reworked to match a modern day family lifestyle.
