Pamela and Ramin Shamshiri founded Studio Shamshiri in 2016. The brother-sister team were part of the four-founding partners at Commune, where they received the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Award for their body of work completed from 2004 to 2015. Studio Shamshiri brings Pamela and Ramin’s respective backgrounds in production, art direction, and set design to residential, commercial and hospitality projects both domestic and international. The studio’s portfolio includes restoration work for homes designed by iconic architects such as A Quincy Jones, Stanford White, Nigel Coates, Rudolph Schindler, Myron Hunt, Buff & Hensman and Andrew Geller, as well as ground-up projects with notable contemporaries including Marmol Radziner and Johnston Marklee.

The Los Angeles-based studio is located in the Thomson Building, a 1920’s Hollywood landmark, that was acquired and restored by the Shamshiri team in 2017.
