Building a Bicoastal Business with Andre Herrero

Enoch SearsApr 4, 2021

Today, we're speaking with one of the co-founders of Charlap Hyman & Herrero, Andre Herrero.

Andre received his architectural training at the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a degree in Fine Arts and a degree in Architecture in 2012. He then went to the UK, working for David Chipperfield Architects in London. He then worked for SANAA in Tokyo and SO-IL in New York before co-founding his practice with Adam Charlap Hyman in 2015.

As a principal of Charlap Hyman & Herrero, Andre leads a multi-disciplinary practice based both in Los Angeles and New York. They work in various typologies – including buildings, products, set designs, stores, and interiors with the aim to create spaces that become worlds in and of themselves.

In 2018, Andre was ranked among Forbes Magazine's 30 under 30 in their Art and Style category, and in 2020, their firm won the AIA LA Emerging Practice Award.

In this conversation, Andre and I discuss how they have grown their practice, how they have gone into new sectors and opened new product lines, and how they are running a bicoastal firm.
