Pamela and Ramin Shamshiri founded Los Angeles-based Studio Shamshiri in 2016. With a deep background in production, art direction, and set design, Pamela oversees a broad range of 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, and Buff & Hensman, as well as ground-up projects with notable contemporaries including Marmol Radziner and Johnston Marklee. Outside the residential arena, the studio has completed signature boutiques for L.A. tastemakers Irene Neuwirth and Sonia Boyajian, as well as the Maison de la Luz hotel in New Orleans.

Prior to opening the firm, Pamela and Ramin were two of the founding partners at Commune, where they received a National Design Award from the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum for their body of work completed from 2004 to 2015. Studio Shamshiri is located in the Thomson Building, a historic 1920s Hollywood landmark restored by the Shamshiri team in 2017.
