(Hopson Rodstrom Design) is a multi-faceted architecture studio happily entrenched in design at all scales. From architecture and urban planning, to interiors, furniture, and household objects, H/RD seeks relevant, impactful solutions through clever and sensitive designs.
With Masters Degrees from Columbia University in New York, BArchs from University of Southern California in Los Angeles, and global studies leading them to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Asia, co-founders Nicholas Hopson AIA and Klara Rodstrom share an interest in culture, art, craft, urban and rural conditions, geography, climate, and current issues that inevitably affect the relevance of design in today’s global society.
Professionally, Hopson and Rodstrom share extensive experience in both Los Angeles and New York with a variety of design-driven practices (LOHA, wHY, Standard, Leeser Architecture, Work AC, kDA, Sander Architects, Tighe Architecture, amongst others). This has provided them with experience in a wide range of project scales, ranging from large institutional museum, theater, gallery, and academic projects, to fashion, retail, hospitality, and single-family, multi-family, affordable, and mixed-use housing. This breadth of knowledge and experience enables H/RD to bring fresh and varied perspectives to each and every project scale. Nicholas Hopson is a registered architect in California.
