Edel Legaspi is the Owner and Principal of Legaspi Courts Design, a full-service interior design and interior architecture studio based in Los Angeles. The studio’s projects range from large-scale luxury residential homes to creative commercial interiors. Each project is distinguished by a design philosophy that unites Edel’s commitment to her client’s vision with her passion for producing dynamic, engaging spaces, rich with color, texture, and shape. Her keen understanding of architecture, experience with the intricacies of the construction process and extensive knowledge of art and design have given her the versatility to handle the multiple facets and myriad details necessary for bringing complex projects to fruition.
An opportunity to work with Kelly Wearstler on the firm's signature hospitality projects, including The Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica and Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs, while still an undergraduate at Woodbury University, cemented Edel’s commitment to pursuing a career in interior design. Holding senior design positions at award winning architecture firms, RSA and Wolcott Architecture, honed her technical skills and established her multidisciplinary approach in completing creative and complex commercial projects. Completing several published luxury residential homes with Jamie Bush + Co confirmed her focus on high-end residential, boutique offices and chef-driven restaurants.
Edel earned her BFA in Interior Architecture from Woodbury University and currently serves as a standing critic for their Interior Design School. Named one of Traditional Homes Rising Stars, her work has received numerous design awards from CA Home & Design, Interior Design Magazine and Luxe RED Awards for various projects.
