See what we can do for you

Noah Riley_002-BW

Hi, I am Noah Riley, founder, and CEO of Riley Projects, an architecture, project management, and development organization based in Los Angeles and working throughout the United States.  Our mission is to make the best homes, communities, workplaces, retreats, and public spaces for modern living while supporting human health and a sustainable existence on our planet.

 

We believe that everyone deserves space to live the good life and that well-designed space will enhance quality of life.  We develop and deploy innovative technologies and renewable materials to make high-performance buildings while our team of talented designers and experienced craftsmen create simple, beautiful spaces that are built to last.

 

Our integrated project delivery model provides a coordinated and efficient team structure that creates value for our customers. We believe in high value, high-quality outcomes, and commit ourselves to that goal.  By doing what we do best, you have better space and more time to do what you do best.

 

- Noah Riley

What we do

Make it simple

Philosophy

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.

Turnkey Process

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 Responsibilities

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.

Natural light

Natural materials

Biophilic Design

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. Research in Biophilic Design shows that connection to and care for the natural world is good for us and good for the planet.

Material Sourcing

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

High Performance

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 and employ Passive House design principles to achieve exceptional energy conservation. 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 

Features and Options

Our projects are built on a strong base platform of building technology designed to last generations and capable of easy maintainance and upgrades.  In addition, we offer a series of options and upgrades that allow you to custom tailor your home to your needs.
