Work in Progress


Each project is a unique challenge.

We pose questions.
We answer, first by drawing, and then by building:

What are our client’s priorities?
What are our client’s dreams?

Where is the path of the sun?
Where does the full moon rise?

What views bring us joy?
Where will we seek solitude?

How do we bring inspiration here?

If material and color were language,
what would this place say?

Every building ever built conveys an attitude towards its time, its place, its people.
At Parson Architecture, we value clean lines and simple aesthetics.
We create buildings that are about detail and craft, and living, and thriving, here and now.

Parson Architecture offers a wide range of services. If you have something in mind that doesn’t seem to fit neatly into one of the categories below, please contact us with your ideas! The fact is that no two projects are really alike, and we always love new challenges.

    Parson Architecture, based in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, crafts distinctive, one-of-a-kind homes for clients in Southern California and nationwide. Our work is an interpretation of modernism, filtered through a rustic or industrial prism.

    We delight in beautifully executed details, in textures, colors, and patterns. We view our clients as collaborators, not as simply customers, and we see their personalities shining through at their best in our completed projects.

    Earl Parson is personally involved in every project and gives each design the individual attention it deserves. When he’s not sketching new designs, he is often found in the Parson Architecture shop, engaged in hands-on crafting of new furniture prototypes or interior design components for the projects.

    In addition to local projects, Parson Architecture currently has active projects in the Sarasota, Florida and Austin, Texas areas.

    Our mission is to change our clients’ lives through the power of great design. Contact us today to discuss your project.
