Along with Claus Freyinger, Andrew Holder has been co-principal at the Los Angeles Design Group (LADG) in Hollywood, California since 2007. The LADG is a firm specializing in contemporary design at all scales, with particular expertise in a materialist approach to design problems, exploiting the properties of pragmatic building materials to create environments and objects that are tailored to generate a specific sensory experience.
Often, this approach utilizes advanced digital modeling software and machine fabrication to allow the emergence of rich textures, complex form, and refined detailing at the scale of human interaction. This narrow focus has produced a diverse array of executed projects, including multi-family residential buildings, retail interiors, tenant improvement packages, single-family residential buildings, interior renovations, graphic design and industrial design. Established in 2004, the firm has completed projects in California, Hawaii, Oregon, Colorado, New York and the UK.www.theladg.com
