West of West

West of West is an architecture and design studio founded by Jai Kumaran and Clayton Taylor in 2012 which operates in Los Angeles and Portland. Inspired by the explorative spirit of the American West, the studio engages architecture and design to activate new frontiers of viewing, framing, and occupying the landscape. Each project is an opportunity to build a new reality by creating progressive spaces and shaping new experiences.

West of West is dedicated to collaboration. Since its inception, the studio has completed multiple projects ranging from commercial and cultural to residential and product design in cities across the United States.
