Leap of Faith Partners

Leap of Faith Partners

LOF Partners and Ark.la are two companies founded by the same partners who share common goals of providing better and more sustainable housing in the City of Los Angeles through innovative techniques, forms and models.

Ark.la is focused around creating architecturally significant housing at the highest possible standard for energy and environmental efficiency and sensitivity. Ark is innovative, green, and dedicated to using the highest state of the art building materials and modular capabilities in its construction.

LOF Partners, LLC is organized around mid-city Los Angeles apartment buildings, which LOF has dramatically improved and renovated as we have acquired them. We first improve the buildings for all tenants and then upgrade and renovate individual apartment units as tenants leave and before they are rented again. In our renovations we use re-useable and energy efficient resources, which include using reclaimed wood and bamboo flooring, energy star appliances, energy efficient lighting and low water flow fixtures.

At Ark, we love architecture and design and believe in creating aesthetically exciting spaces with a real organic connection to the surrounding landscape. Ark.la relies on a talented team of successful professionals in various fields to enhance our work. Award-winning modular home design expert Chris Krager of ma modular, in Austin, Texas leads our architects. Chris’ work is supported by the work of soils engineers at Calabasas, CA based GeoSoils and Los Angeles engineering consultant Kofi Allan leads our engineering specialists team. And, noted Los Angeles landscape designer and historian, Wade Graham, author of the book American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to our Backyards: What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are is our landscape designer.

Our modular projects are built in partnership with Palm Harbor Homes, headquartered in Portland, Oregon.
