We are a full service architectural firm that provides a range of services including architectural design, interior design, landscape design, furniture design, jewelry design and prefab. In addition, we provide all construction services, as we are also a design/build firm. As part of our construction department, we operate our own custom cabinet shop and metal shop. We want our collaborative design vision to be realized coherently throughout, in spaces large and small and indoor and outdoor.
Founded in 1989 by Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner, Marmol Radziner is a collaboration between Ron Radziner, Design Principal, and Leo Marmol, Managing Principal. We also have four associates, Christopher Shanley, Nicole Starr, Stephanie Hobbs, and Brad Williams. Our staff includes general contractors, cabinet-makers, metal fabricators, and site supervisors, many of whom are also architects.
Although we are architects first, we believe that our dual capacity as architects and contractors allows us to responsibly design simple buildings more elegantly and complex buildings with more care. Like the California Modernists we admire, we endeavor to design from the big idea down to the smallest detail.
We also believe it is possible for architecture to bring people closer to nature. Whether designing to the highest standards of sustainable design or creating outdoor rooms that extend daily living into the landscape, we negotiate our relationship to nature through every design choice we make.
In 2004, Marmol Radziner was named the American Institute of Architects California Council’s Firm of the Year. We were honored as members of the Architectural Digest AD 100 and as inductees of the Interior Design 25th Anniversary Hall of Fame in 2009. A monograph of our work can be purchased here.
