Chris Faulhammer

Chris Faulhammer, principal and co-founder of bspk design inc., was born in Ohio just a stone’s throw away from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian House. Early on Chris discovered his love and passion for Architectural Design and the impact it has on people and their environment.

After receiving a Bachelor of Architecture and a Master’s of Architecture with a focus in Urban Design at Kent State University, Chris spent time studying Urban Form in Florence while also traveling and exploring Europe. Ready to put theory into practice, Chris moved to Los Angeles in 2005. He worked for such renowned offices like Frank Gehry, Lorcan O’Herlihy and Xten Architecture as a Designer and Project Manager. During that time Chris worked on diverse projects, including multi million dollar residential homes, multi unit housing, retail, hospitality, concert halls and venues.

Driven by his passion for design and ready to implement his knowledge, Chris started to collaborate with RRID in 2007 and founded his own design service company Think Design Office Inc. in 2014, working mainly on residential projects. Ready to take it to the next level he combined powers with Roman Reiterer in 2018 to create bspk design inc.

Roman Reiterer

Roman Reiterer, principal and co-founder of bspk design inc., was born and raised in Vienna, Austria where he trained in interior design and furniture making. After moving to Los Angeles in 1995, he completed his education at UCLA earning a degree in interior architecture.

During and following his studies, Roman worked at several architecture and interior design companies, gaining experience as a Project Manager for residential design projects.

As a Project Manager, Roman often found himself caught between the needs of his clients and the sometimes conflicting visions of the professionals hired to complete the project – architects, interior designers, landscape designers, and contractors. Learning from these challenges, he saw an opportunity to integrate and unify the process.

In 2003, Roman opened his own company, RRID, to create homes by managing every step of the project, from studs to flower beds, from breaking ground to completion. Building on this personalized mindset and his decade plus of experience with RRID, Roman combined forces with Chris Faulhammer to create bspk design inc. in 2018.
