Based in downtown Long Beach, California, Studio One Eleven is an integrated practice of architecture, landscape, and urban design dedicated to creating more vibrant communities. From master plans to individual buildings, each endeavor aims at making a more humane and sustainable urban whole.
We believe that the purpose of architecture is the making of the City. From the geography of the region to the disposition of blocks and buildings, every urban component has an interdependent relationship with all others. We view every project as an opportunity to physically enhance the urban context that sustains it.
In contrast to an 'architecture of time', ours is an 'architecture of place'. Our designs are not predicated by a singular language, but are inspired through the careful assessment of the history, climate, culture and context of the place where they stand. We believe that the best way to improve the future of a place is to understand its past, patterns and precedents.
