STEPHANIE HARROCH Architect AIA, Engineer
Founder & President
With over a decade of design related experience as well as a refined multicultural approach to architecture, Stephanie Harroch sets the bar for architectural design, combining her unique blend of aesthetic styles and ideals to create structures that are wholly their own. The Moroccan born designer attributes these eclectic stylings to her colorful and diverse upbringing, nourishing her passion for architecture at a young age while growing up in Morocco and Italy before finally settling in the United States.
It was here she received her educational training, as she attended top tier universities such as the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering, the Graduate School of Architecture at Pratt, and finally the School of Graduate Architecture and Design at Colombia.
Upon graduation, Stephanie began working with world renowned firms such as ASY, Richard Meier, Bernard Tschumi, Aldo Rossi and Partners, and Handel Architects, before founding the Los Angeles based firm XID in 2014.
Stephanie’s minimalist sentiments, paired with pure lines, exposed materiality, framed landscapes, bold and edgy accents, and a emphasis on natural lighting, enabled XID to rapidly take root in LA’s metropolitan area, as her multifaceted blend of American and European modernism struck a cord with the investors and clients of Southern California. Since then, Stephanie and XID have utilized their affinity for open floor plans, integrated spatial connections, acute precision to detail, and excellence in holistic design to carve out a sizable niche in the Los Angeles architecture market.
