Lightness, Abstraction and Imperfection


Studio Paul Chan (formerly known as The Coast) is an architecture and design studio creating bespoke spaces and objects in Los Angeles. With a profound belief in designs that satisfy rational and poetic needs, the studio approaches each project with a delicate balance - between lightness and shadow, between precision and imperfection, between reason and abstraction.
