Located in Los Angeles, the award winning architecture practice, MURMUR, was founded in 2008 by Heather Roberge. MURMUR is committed to the production of stimulating built environments. We believe in the transformative effects of architecture and seek to harness its capacity to engage people intellectually, socially, and physically. Our work expands material tradition with the opportunities and potential of digital technologies, remaining steadfastly committed to tectonics, material assembly, and form.
MURMUR’s work has been recognized nationally through awards, exhibitions and publications. The office has won three Los Angeles AIA design awards in recognition of innovative design concepts and their precise execution with creative assembly methods. In 2014, the Vortex House was nominated for the prestigious Mies Crown Hall of Americas Emerging Architecture Prize.
Ms. Roberge was selected by the Architectural League of New York for the 2016 Emerging Voices program, named a Next Progressive in Architect magazine in 2015, and was a finalist in the MoMA|PS1 Young Architects Program in 2006. Ms. Roberge’s work has appeared in A+U, Praxis, Metropolis, I.D., Japan Esquire, Architectural Record, Log, 306090, The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times. She has lectured widely and her work has been exhibited in New York, Beijing, Boston, Austin, Los Angeles and London.
