Electric Bowery is a Venice Beach based multidisciplinary design and architecture studio founded in 2013 with a reputation for connecting innovative design strategies with familiar everyday life. The studio prides itself in its accessible approach to design and close client relationships resulting in successful and gratifying project outcomes. Electric Bowery’s two managing partners -- Cayley Lambur & Lucia Bartholomew -- first met while working together on the same project team at Gehry Partners in Los Angeles, each contributing to the Electric Bowery studio a unique vision and extensive past experience within Los Angeles and New York. Alongside Deborah Scott, founding partner and advisor, the three women originally formed Electric Bowery’s predecessor, Scott Morris Architects Ltd, which was rebranded to become Electric Bowery in 2016. Deborah continues to act as an integral part of the Electric Bowery team, serving as advisor with over 35 years of experience in the field of architecture.
The Electric Bowery team values the strength of collaboration within its own studio and client base, as well as collective innovation with design professionals, artists, and craftsmen within the design community. The studio is inspired by original architectural elements paired with thoughtful and conscientious selection of materials, as evidenced in current and finished works. The growing portfolio of work includes single & multifamily residences, high end commercial office spaces, restaurants, hotels, boutique shops and interior design.
Pushing beyond the typical architect-client relationship, entrepreneurial curiosity has inspired the Electric Bowery team to pursue their own architectural development projects as well: wholly identified & conceived, designed, and construction managed by the studio team. With a unique approach to contract structures and a close-knit team of builders, subcontractors, and resourceful finishing trades, the Electric Bowery team has successfully completed several of these investor-driven development projects, subscribing to and emphasizing the value of thoughtful design.
