Is a Los Angeles and Yerevan based design practice
MNOffice is engaged in the production of speculative and built projects that study and cultivate works of cultural, spatial, and material interest. The firm's approach to design is site-specific, but its commitment to the clarity of an environment is unwavering. By producing a design narrative at the onset of each project – an atmospheric media tour through a range of visual references - we work to establish a clear visual language. The goal is to build spaces that meet all the client’s needs and possess enduring value while unearthing a sensibility uniquely their own. This regard for the collaborative process extends beyond the design phase to a core group of building professionals, artists, consultants, and craftspeople with whom we engage in executing the vision.
