TALLER was founded in opposition to complacent design. We work in pursuit of a deliberate architecture. An architecture of intervention; an active architecture to advance the quality our collective built environment. Given the ubiquity of our built surroundings, this requires working at all scales with equal fervor: from interior remodels to large-scale developments. In an increasingly commoditized and segmented sector, this also requires that we expand our traditional understanding of the role of the Architect. As such, we bring together expertise in various areas of the building process, exploring alternative methods of practice to increase our impact across the entire value chain of project delivery.
We do not follow trends, nor do we aim to create them. We aim simply to change our built environment for the better by providing the best possible solutions to every project we take on. TALLER is a proudly Los Angeles based studio working at the intersection of architecture, design, and development.
