Two Convo By Design staples merged recently... The West Hollywood Design Districts, DIEM programming curated by Frances Anderson and Mallory Roberts Morgan was live from the WestEdge Design Fair for a full day of talks and panels. This is the first of those conversations. KCRW’s Frances Anderson sat with architect Michael Maltzan about the current state of architecture and design in Los Angeles. Los Angeles has, over the past two decades become a major player on the world stage with regard to architecture and design. Los Angeles, once thought of as a second city when it came to all things arts related, aside from motion pictures, of course, is second to none. And that growth has not come without growing pains. Strained tensions from an abundance of building projects, traffic, congestion, loss of historic properties that have made way for new development. Frances and Michael have an open conversation about the growth and how to move forward in a way that works. Enjoy this conversation between KCRW’s Frances Anderson and architect, Michael Maltzan.

This week, we are going to explore a unique design house project in Santa Monica, California. Lagaspi Courts Design created a fantastic project house and it was produced by GC Collaborative. Here is what is interesting about this project, it was created as a design house that is also on the market. I suppose you could call this a spec home, but it really is so much more than that. This house was designed from the top down in a residential neighborhood in Santa Monica, with amazing views and a regional airport nearby. Often times, a design house project will be easy because the project producers only worry about creating a beautiful space for show. This house was created in the city of Santa Monica which is know for having some tough restrictions. It was produced close to a regional airport flight path and it was created with some elevation challenges. At the same time, it wasn’t just created for art’s sake, this home has to find a buyer. With all of these challenges, we have a remarkably close team consisting of developer Michael Farag, designer Edel Legaspi, architect, Christopher Courts and project producer, Ginna Christensen. This is a deep dive into a challenging project with a stunningly beautiful result. You can read more about it here: http://designontap.snyderdiamond.com/design-on-tap/2017/9/29/best-in-show-house-legaspi-courts and If you like this conversation, please go to iTunes and give the show a good rating, it helps with the show rankings which gets us more exposure.

Lori Dennis is a fabulous designer. This is her second career, did you know that? She started in finance and later decided to pursue her passion for interior design. Since then, she has built a global design brand. She is a speaker, author, HGTV star and develops product lines based on her award winning brand. Lori is a tour de force and while nothing is going to stop her, it is important to see where she came from. We met at her home office, surrounded by amazing architecture, thought provoking art, and chickens. Real chickens. Lori and I cover a lot of ground. Following is a conversation with designer and design business master, Lori Dennis.

Renovation and residential construction is exciting. You are designing your dream home, your sanctuary. But that process can also be one of the most stressful experiences of you life. If someone who knew the process inside and out, knew every tip, trick and hack came to you and said, “Listen, give me an hour and I am going to tell you the conditions necessary for an extraordinary build.” would you be interested? If the answer is “yes” then keep listening. Following is a conversation moderated by yours truly from the WestEdge Design Fair. This features Laurie Haefele, James Magni, Bart Mendel, Mike Grosswendt and Brian Biglin. You have every side of this challenge represented, design, architecture, construction and project management all in one place at one time with over 100 years of combined experience giving you exactly what you need.

As mentioned, this conversation was held at the WestEdge Design Fair where Convo By Design presented by Snyder Diamond offered a California Garden Folly designed by Kelley Jackson of Kelley Jackson Interior Design and built by the Warner Bros Property Department and custom work by their upholstery and fabric shops. If you are not aware of the services Warner Bros. offers the design trade, you are in for a treat. If you can think of it, they can make it. Check them out at w b drapery dot com. And keep checking back here as we present conversations recorded from the California Garden Folly at WestEdge.

I am just going to tell it to you straight, if I could add another career right now, it would be that of a set decorator. I have spent the last couple of years working with Set Decorator Society of America members and they are an amazing group. Many also work as interior designers but make no mistake, these two disciplines are very different.

Following are three amazing set decorators who, combined have worked on some amazing projects. You know their work, titles include; Cheers, The Abyss, Gone In 60 Seconds, Basic Instinct, Seinfeld, Threes Company, Married With Children, Judy Moody and The Not Bummer Summer, this is just a few, a sample.

Laura Richarz, Don Diers and Melinda Ritz are giants in the biz. Andrew Linde, a Convo By Design segment producer caught up with them. Enjoy.

Fall has come and I for one, am thrilled. Fall in Southern California means the weather cools. Yes, it cools elsewhere in Fall but here, it takes the edge off of summer and the tourists have mostly gone home which leaves the beaches empty, a great time for a second, cooler summer. It also means WestEdge is coming.This will be our 5th year as a media partner and our fourth year hosting live conversations. This year, we have some special things to share so I hope you can make it out October 19th through the 22nd at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar.

As we prepared for the show this year, we found a conversation from last year that you haven’t heard before on Convo By Design. This conversation is moderated by Veronica Miller of Modenus and features Beth Dotolo and Carolina Gentry of Pulp Design Studios, as well as Lori Gilder and Rebecca Reynolds of Kitchen Design Network. I enjoyed this conversation a great deal and I’m happy to share it with you. This is Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. This is all about influences and influencers of the past and creating on success, breathing new life into classic work.

This is Part two of Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. If you like what you hear, And, I hope you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

I have a strong respect for creatives. I am fascinated by multidisciplinary creatives. Laurie Haefele has been a previous guest on the podcast and she is back, but this time in a very different way. Call this episode a case study. We went to see Laurie at a recently completed project in Culver City, California. I named this project “Beautifully Bronzed” the moment I walked in and if you check out any of the videos or images on Instagram or Pinterest, you’ll see why. The finishes are all brass against against a dark blue color in the cabinetry. Just an editors note here, before you email me and tell me that brass and bronze are different, I am aware of that. There was a little creative license taken in the naming. But it does beg the question about use of brass versus bronze. Since both are made of primarily copper, they share a number of characteristics but because brass has zinc, and bronze does not, you get a slightly yellower color from brass, which in this case, paired with a dark blue cabinet against a white counter and backsplash made for a really rich look and provided a pop. It was really a wonderful use of color and materials. You won’t be able to tell that from the podcast, but you will from the videos on our YouTube channel so please make sure to pop over there and find some additional inspiration.

Laurie thought of everything here and I’m happy that we could bring you a walking tour. Please enjoy this conversation with kitchen designer and architect, Laurie Haefele.

This episode features Nic Neumann, Coo of Sky-Frame, a Swiss company that manufactures frameless doors and windows. They say they provide “a view, not a window.” Their work is elegant, Swiss engineered and Swiss made. Their product is sleek and detailed and that is why I thought you would like to hear a bit more about it. It is always fun speaking with designers and architects about projects, collaboration and one of the challenges that continually comes up is sourcing new product. One frustration in the business is that manufacturers don’t spend enough time marketing their product to those that could be using it.

Effective marketing has always been a challenge in the shelter space. There are not a lot of suitable outlets, some are not cost-effective and others just don't fit for a number of reasons. Meet Nic Neumann, Chief Operating Officer and manager of US Operations. Nic and I discuss the business, some remarkable facts about Sky-Frame’s Swiss headquarters and how they work with architects and designers to make sure the product is ordered, manufactured and delivered with precision.

Please enjoy this conversation with Sky-Frame COO, Nic Neumann. And, if you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.
