Commune is a Los Angeles-based design studio with a reputation for holistic work across the fields of architecture, interior design, graphic design, product design, and brand management. The firm has designed residential, commercial and hospitality projects worldwide, a wide array of home and lifestyle products, as well as graphic and branding concepts for the fashion, arts and entertainment industries.
The studio values the strength of the collective mind, believing that authentic creativity and innovation come from collaboration. The true virtuosity of their work comes from their collaborations with their clients as well as with other members of the community. Since its inception, Commune has worked with artists and craftsmen around the globe. Their environmental sympathies are expressed in their conscientious selection of materials, and echoed in their appreciation for original architecture and its elements.
Commune stands for community. A community of like-minded architects, interior designers, graphic designers, consultants, artisans, and builders led by principals Roman Alonso and Steven Johanknecht.
In 2014 Commune published its first monograph Commune: Designed in California. Commune has been consistently included in the AD 100 and Elle Décor A-List as well as received a number of awards including the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Interior Design.
