Design Feature: Roger TV Animation Warehouse Conversion by Apurva Pande

We're thrilled to share our creative warehouse conversion project for the spectacularly unique motion graphics and animation studio, Roger TV.

Quite a complex process, inserting a second floor and editing suites within a former garment manufacturing 'shop' with dubious code compliance prior.

Writer's Block: Vivre et Travailler A La Maison by Apurva Pande

Looking forward to seeing Writer's Block in print with the French magazine Architectures A Avivre. Thank you for the thoughtful piece. And yes, we maximized our rudimentary reading skills in French successfully :)

Writer's Block on NPR by Apurva Pande

So proud of our clients, Marie Lu and Primo for the story on them and Writer's Block on NPR. Great listening to you guys. Congratulations on the exciting new title, Warcross.

In her modernist loft in LA’s arts district, author Marie Lu has a modular workspace and lounge area whimsically dubbed The Writer’s Block.

CHA:COL presents at Dwell on Design by Apurva Pande

Join us at Dwell on Design this weekend. We're presenting 'Tough Terrain, Peculiar Lots' this Saturday, June 24th. Register here for complimentary passes. Look forward to seeing you there.


The purpose of the presentation is to help explain the complex, unusual, often bizarre intersecting world of terrains, topography, unique lots as well as the adjudicating laws, agencies and codes that govern them. All this from an architect's design perspective.

LA has a diverse and complex terrain, hillsides, coasts, rivers, small lots, highways, special zones, transportation corridors, HOA, HPOZ...The list is overpowering, even for design professionals. Explore residences and lots that require vastly different strategies to make a project possible and highlight the issues that come with peculiar lots and physical conditions.


Look forward to seeing you there.
