Between Spaces and Objects

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 shadows, between precision and imperfection, between reason and intuition. 


Paul Chan (b. 1984) has worked at the design firms Kelly Wearstler, ASH NYC, and DillerScofidio+Renfro. He has led the design of multiple architectural and hospitality projects from New York to Los Angeles such as The Siren Hotel, SweetGreen flagship store and Collective VIP booth among others. Educated at Parsons School of Design, University of Pennsylvania, Chan holds a Master of Architecture and a Master of Science in Development from Columbia University GSAPP where he was awarded the CURE award for the advancement of transdisciplinary research in architecture and urban development.
