Josh Yoches

Josh brings a versatile and creative approach to architecture that is expressed in his expertise of multiple design mediums that he uses to craft concise solutions to complex design problems. He appreciates the energy and passion that he has found in Studio VARA and the opportunity to imagine artful spaces that can be lived in.

Being born and raised in California, it is only natural that Josh is an avid surfer and skateboarder, as well as an artist and musician. Before attending California College of the Arts for his master’s degree, he ran his own freelance design firm that specialized in website design and branding, while creating murals and mixed-media art installations. Josh also received a Be’chol Lashon Travel Grant and helped a non-profit fund-raise, design, and build a synagogue in rural Uganda.
