Whipple Russell Architects
Whipple Russell Architects is a boutique Los Angeles based firm specializing in contemporary design for a west coast lifestyle. A simple phrase drives our practice: The lives that occupy the work inspire the body of the work. Before defining a building’s aesthetic, we work with clients to glean how they want the building to perform: that is, how the plan will be organized to support the feeling and function they want their building to evoke. Some clients desire very closed, private spaces; others desire an open, loft-like ambience. In creating the floor plan that supports the clients’ desired function, we trigger the evolution of an aesthetic. The building’s style thus grows from its plan, often surprising our clients who may not have previously recognized that affinity.
