About Wolf Design Studio
"At Wolf Design Studio, we do not just want to design a home for you, we want to help you build your legacy."

Artistic Vision

As a high-end luxury residential design firm, Wolf Design Studio prides itself on personal attention and strong client relationships. An integral part of our design process includes envisioning how our clients experience their space as a whole, how they live in it, how they move through it - the views, the furnishings, the spatial relationships - to create a one-of-a-kind home.

Southern California Living 

Wolf Design Studio is ranked among the top Orange County and Los Angeles architecture and design firms. Our projects are located in exclusive areas of Los Angeles - Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Pacific Palisades - and Orange County - Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar and Dana Point. We create open, modern spaces that take advantage of the California lifestyle by blurring the line between inside and out, creating homes where living space and nature become one.  

Unparalleled Service

With over 10 years of experience in southern CA, Wolf Design Studio has the expertise to create breathtaking spaces. We work hand-in-hand with our clients, providing guidance throughout the entire design process from concept through construction management. This level of service sets us apart from other top residential design and architecture firms.
