Atelier: About


ATELIER JØRGENSEN is a Napa Valley and Los Angeles based group of designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of design, interior design, landscape design, urbanism, construction, and development. The office is currently involved in a number of projects throughout The Napa Valley, Los Angeles, Hawaii and the Mediterranean. Atelier Jørgensen’s ideas emerge out of an intentional analysis of how life around us constantly evolves and changes. We believe that the influence from cultural exchange, economic flows and communication technologies require new ways of thinking in terms of the built environment and urban formation. We believe that in order to deal with today’s environment, design can--and must--profitably move into a field that has been largely unexplored. We believe in a pragmatically-built environment that steers clear of boring design and the seemingly repetitive stereotypes behind digital formalism. We create design by mixing conventional ingredients such as financing, living, and leisure. By allowing the relationship between pragmatism and timelessness to develop, we designers set out to change the built environment to better accommodate contemporary life and its evolutions.
