We make space for better living
See what we can do for you
My name is Noah Riley, founder, and CEO of Riley Projects, an architecture, construction, and development collective located in Los Angeles, CA. Our mission is to make the best places to live - urban homes and apartments, secluded retreats, flexible workplaces, and engaging public spaces - while supporting the health of the people and planet with whom we live.
By working with us, you are joining us in our mission. We are honored to have your trust and we are committed to delivering beyond your expectations.
What we do
Make it simple
Creating elegant simplicity is one of the great challenges in design. We work to find balance, appropriate scale, and proportion in everything that we do, and to respect people and place in all that we make. We believe that we have only this world, and that we need to do all we can to leave it a better place than we found it.
Time is precious. Life is complicated. Our design and production process simplifies all aspects of creating your home - from concept design and finish selection to construction management and project financing - giving you more time to focus on your life.
Keep it clean
Back to Basics
We provide a warm elemental environment for you to live in, editing the underlying architecture so that you can make it your own. Clean lines and uncluttered surfaces provide a canvas for you to customize and accessorize with your own personal style.
Our commitment to clean extends beyond design. From the environmental impact of the production and operation of a home to the personal impact that a living or working space can have on your well-being, we are committed to making homes that support a healthy life and a healthy planet.
Warmth and comfort can be found in the natural world - our circadian rhythms adjust to the changing sunlight throughout the day; our eyes and hands appreciate the variations and imperfections in a stone slab, a wooden plank, or a natural fiber; and the sounds of birds, the wind, the rain, connect us to the world outside our walls and windows. The science of biophilia is conclusive, connection to and care for the natural world is good for us and good for the planet.
Use and conservation of renewable resources are critical to creating and maintaining a balanced lifestyle that supports a healthy ecosystem. We are committed to adaptive reuse of buildings and materials when possible, and sourcing new materials that are responsibly and ethically produced.
Focus on function
Efficient, functional design and carefully sourced products and materials allow us to deliver high-performance construction. Our projects target the California 2020 ZNE (Zero Net Energy) building code requirements. With robust quality assurance/quality control protocols, we can produce projects that are best-in-class in specification and production.
A place to unwind
I’m pretty jealous of this house. The whole thing feels clean, fresh and modern . . . and yet totally warm and inviting. If I ever wanted to build a house in LA I would absolutely consider having Noah Riley be the architect. - Emily Henderson
