The name of the firm expresses an interest we have in exploring the boundaries that architecture operates within - the larger boundless environment suggested by the CITY, and the intense focused craftsmanship of the object, the DESK. The focus of the STUDIO, architecture, exists in between these scales. We choose to be diverse in project types and scales. We believe the ideas, issues, and even construction techniques in these different project types inform each other resulting in work that is better designed and better built.

George Nelson (1908-1986) was an extremely influential industrial designer, writer, and thinker whose designs are as popular today as perhaps they’ve ever been. Educated in architecture at Yale University in the 1920s, Nelson was a prolific writer on design. He wrote for Architectural Forum and Interiors and published the top-drawer books Tomorrow’s House, How to See: A Guide to Reading Our Man-Made Environment, and Building a New Europe: Portraits of Modern Architects. More important than his writing, however, was his work as an industrial designer. He had a close relationship with the Herman Miller furniture company, for which he served as creative director, which produced his famous works such as the bubble lamp, marshmallow sofa, swag leg desk and dozens of clocks. In 1959 he worked on the exhibition design of the American National Exhibition in Moscow, home of the famous “Kitchen Debate” between then US Vice President Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev. Nelson’s legacy lives on now and he has come to define mid-century American design like few others.

Margarita McGrath and Scott Oliver began working together in 1994 on the design of the ranch house project for a horse-loving client and her husband. A decade+ later, they completed their first permanant built work together (alas the ranch house remains unbuilt), and decided to call the collaboration noroof architects.
The noroof approach to design resembles working at actual size, except that as a way of thinking it has to fit on a desk. Because we are interested in the experience of space, we often work in models. Beginnings are rarely made with an empty desk; there is always a pile of scraps from other projects within reach. We start with a basic idea in mind, and this gets situated into architecture through picking pieces out of the pile, holding them up for evaluation, trimming an edge, taping them in place, changing a piece or two, and then selecting the next element out of the stacks. As a way of thinking, this allows unexpected and unforeseen connections to happen.
We tried this process at full scale (1:1) in two installations, peeling the grape and forgetting LA. The slot house, noroof’s first permanent work, also uses this approach. When working at actual size, what we are responding to is the surroundings, the site (here the gallery room or existing house), and the process of construction.
Our work is grounded in re-collecting the beauty of ordinary things through making visible relations that connect them to matter and circumstances outside of themselves. This means that the work invites you (and anyone else who occupies the work) to participate in its making through adding your own experiences to the architecture.
