Firm Profile

Many firms describe their work as “transformative”—architecture as an accomplished fact. At Woods + Dangaran, we create modern homes through dialogue and exploration.

By working closely with trusted tradespersons, we can deliver work that is uncompromising in craftsmanship.

Based in Los Angeles and working across the country, we design holistically and at every scale: from integrating architecture and interiors to creating custom furnishings. The result is projects that are subtle and disciplined, pure in form, and focused on realizing sublime experiences of space and light.

We foster a collaborative environment where our studio members are involved in all stages of projects from design conception to completion.
