Bryan Kobe

Bryan holds a Masters of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and a BFA in Interior Design from CSUC. Shortly after graduation, Bryan was able to contribute to several creative office / commercial office tenant improvement projects including office remodels for Activision Publishing, Inc., Riot Games, Inc., Connexity and Redbull E-Sports.  In 2018 Bryan joined MAKE Architecture and is currently responsible for project managing typologies ranging from small boutique coffee shops & breweries to multilevel immersive restaurants to luxurious single family homes.  

 

Bryan’s roots are from rural California where he developed a passion craft of fine woodworking.  While completing his undergraduate degree, several of his projects were able to dovetail into interior design work and he took the experience of creating tree slab tables and other fine furniture pieces to think differently about ones experiences in residential spaces.

 

On recommendations from his undergraduate faculty to complete his formal Architectural education, Bryan attended the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).  The rigorous curriculum commanded a proficiency in the ability to represent abstract ideas through various mediums such as drawings, renderings, film & animation, and text.  Bryan’s graduate thesis work focused on putting together a body of work that architecturally summarized what it takes to put two different materials side by side in the built environment. Formatted as a series of assemblage vignettes or recipes, this body of work became a launch pad for Bryan to understand how to put a building together.

 

Professionally, Bryan has had the privilege of working on scores of projects at various levels of responsibilities.  Many of those projects are currently under construction or have been built and operational, while Bryan is overseeing other projects through the permitting process in the various jurisdictions of Southern California.  Of note, Bryan has experience submitting complex entitlement packages to City Planning Departments and negotiating Design Review Board panels of Venice & Hollywoodland.  He also has experience working on residential Hillside sensitive projects as well as projects located in California’s fire severity zones.  Bryan has worked with business owners, chef’s and food service equipment consultants on cafés, breweries, and fine dining restaurants.   Bryan has some experience with multifamily housing & hospitality projects and is eager for more experience.

 

If Bryan has free time, you can find him spending it with family, writing, working on competitions or working on product ideas.
