Studio Qasabian Debuts “The Mulholland Project”: A Mid-Century Modern Masterpiece

Studio Qasabian was established in 2020 by Adrienne Qasabian with the mission of crafting refined and environmentally-conscious commercial, hospitality, and residential environments.  Principal Adrienne Qasabian, a seasoned interior architect, interior designer, and collectible furniture designer boasts over a decade of international experience across the United States, Mexico, Australia, and the United Kingdom.



The Mulholland Project is a 1960s mid-century modern gem located in the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles, California. Adrienne Qasabian of Studio Qasabian acted as not only the interior designer and interior architect, but also created custom collectible furniture for the entire residence. The debut collectible furniture collection is available on 1st Dibs and studioqasabian.com




“This interior design project is an exercise in the fusion of mid-century charm and contemporary minimalism. Our aesthetic aims to be as rich and bold, as it is edited and intentional. The result is a  carefully  curated home, which pays homage to it’s mid-century roots and  iconic setting, while introducing elements of edge and sophistication.  Vintage sofas, coffee tables, and dining table bases underwent a transformative process, meticulously reworked, refurbished, and reimagined to seamlessly integrate into the contemporary aesthetics of the home. This approach, marrying vintage charm with modern design, extended to custom-designed contemporary pieces. Notably, pieces specifically crafted for the master bedroom have caught the eye of 1st Dibs and are currently in the development stage as a furniture line. At the heart of the project is the art story—a nod to the clients' heritage. All featured artists in the home share an Armenian descent, a deliberate curation that not only honors the homeowners' roots but also a cohesion with my own  own cultural heritage.”

California-born and bred between Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia, Adrienne’s upbringing infused both her personal and professional perspective. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Sociology from the University of California Santa Barbara, and subsequently completed a certification in interior design from UCLA. After her formal education, she ventured to London, where she spent two years immersed in the art of preserving architectural heritage while contemporizing spaces for the modern user. Upon her return to the United States, Adrienne honed her craft at several AD100 firms including Kelly Wearstler, YSG Design and wHY Architects. Notably, she led the design team for the Soho House in Mexico City. Since its inception, the studio has had the honor of undertaking numerous international projects, ranging from a prestigious hotel in Adrienne's beloved Australia to various commercial and residential ventures across the United States and Europe.




“At the most basic level, shelter represents a fundamental human need, providing refuge and sanctuary. For most of the modern world, interior space is where we spend the majority of our time, and the impact of our surroundings extends far beyond aesthetics. Our interior environment has a direct effect on our physical well-being, mental health, productivity, creativity, and overall sense of tranquility. A well-designed space is a full sensory experience. We see our task as a great responsibility, not only to the individuals inhabiting the spaces we shape, but also to the broader environment we all share.  Recognizing the inherent environmental impact of construction, we integrate sustainable practices into our process. Our instinct is to honor and repurpose existing elements wherever feasible, minimizing waste and maximizing resource efficiency. Building “green” is woven into the fiber of our design approach. In that sense, we like when things patina and embrace the weathering and transformation that time brings.  We celebrate the evolution of renewable resources, eagerly anticipating each new iteration and innovation they offer. To us, the act of crafting space carries profound significance, and the way in which we undertake the task holds just as much gravity.”
