“Alex and I met on a New York job site in 1998—but it was totally a personal connection. It was there instantly for me. We were both working for other people at the time, and we were in a relationship that had nothing to do with aesthetics or design—that really wasn’t part of the discussion.”, explains Michael. “I don’t know that we’re a typical L.A. firm, but I don’t think that we’ll ever be a typical New York firm, either. We just kind of march to our own beat.”
