office42 works on all types of projects, residential and commercial, and specializes in the innovative use of materials and construction methods. Through our projects, we form queries not initially obvious and provide innovative solutions that meet the needs and budget of the client, while exceeding expectations. We enjoy the problem solving and collaboration that we experience with every project and each client and enjoy helping people design their lives.

Who We Are.

office42 is an architecture firm founded in 2007 by the husband and wife team Stephanie and Ben Ragle in Los Angeles. It was started on the premise that good design, innovation, and creative solutions should be available to all. After living and working in Europe, India, and New York, Los Angeles seemed the ideal place to synthesize and put into action these diverse experiences.

What We Do.

We design striking homes. We help clients investigate their options for a potential property. We manage the construction side of projects. We launch businesses in new spaces. We slog through the California Building Code (so you don't have to). From schematic design through construction, we guide or clients through a the very difficult process of turning a vision into reality.

We see it as our role to provide answers and guide our clients through the design and construction process. Call or email us to discuss your project or set up an appointment.

We wanted to document some of the smaller moments that our projects experience.
