About 

Senior Architect / Project Manager

I have over twenty years of experience working as a designer, project architect and project manager, with an emphasis on high-end residential and hospitality projects.  I founded my boutique practice in 2009 after ten years working for established firms in New York.  Much of my experience has come at the intersection of Architecture and Interiors.  Although I think of myself as an architect first, I have included interior design in many of my projects.

WAYMAN ROBERTSON S T U D I O, Los Angeles, CA, US, Principal

I established my Architecture & Interior Design practice in 2009 with an early emphasis on bespoke city living. New York City apartment and loft projects present a unique set of interior architecture challenges, with an emphasis on spatial planning, custom cabinetry & furniture, and specialty finish details.

The WRS portfolio has since expanded to include custom house designs. A new base of operations has been established in Los Angeles for 2021 to better serve our West Coast clientele. Wayman continues to work with clients in NYC, Oregon and beyond.
