iDGroup has been recognized for residential and commercial architecture, locally in Los Angeles and abroad. With over twenty years of experience in the industry, we specialize in the acquisition, development, design, construction, and management of unique real estate properties. With a combination of intensive dedication and expansive vision, iDGroup seeks out spaces in which to build the seemingly impossible and make it feel like home.
Our work can be found from Bel Air to the Bird Streets and overseas from Japan to Panama. iDGroup is comprised of a talented team of multidisciplinary individuals led by founder Jeff Vance. Each person brings their particular skill set to the table, working in tandem to transform a theoretical idea into an enduring structure. And with our multi-cultural background, iDGroup encompasses a global array of styles and sensibilities. Going beyond expectation to bring dreams to life with absolute detail is what we do every day.
Jeff Vance lives in a world of images, not words. As the founder of iD Group, his mind is both a creative and analytical force that sees the potential for endless improvement. His work and personal style show that Vance is a creator who values authenticity and careful attention to detail. His design sensibility ranges from mid-century classics to monumental contemporary estates.Whatever the style, they share one commonality: they are inviting and warm spaces in which to live, work, and rest.
Where there is just a dirt site or a dilapidated building, Vance sees an interesting puzzle to work with site specific restrictions and imbue the mundane with a sculptural quality. According to Vance, you should listen to the property and let it guide the process. What is the environment? What is the soil? These are the questions that Vance knows will lead to a feasible, high quality design. Letting the market or trends dictate design is never on the table. And his projects show it.
Starting out his career in special effects and set decorating, Vance quickly made a name for himself through his own love of design and a keen understanding of business. Today, Vance is based in the Hollywood Hills, enjoying the challenges and opportunities of a vibrant city which is seeing a resurgence of the architectural significance it was once renowned for. With an interest in both the historical and entrepreneurial landscape of Los Angeles, he has devoted years to designing everything from the foundation to the fork on the dining tables of recognized homes.
Outside of Los Angeles, Vance has studied and worked in the massive urban sprawl of Tokyo and the high rises of Central America. He has had a chance to visit the obscure remains of Eastern European architecture and held offices in lush penthouses overlooking Hawaiian beaches. In these travels, he’s left behind new friends and new builds in diverse landscapes. Regardless of the locale, his eye is always drawn to something that can be further refined.
Ferial Sadeghian grew up in Iran where she studied at an American grade school and later got her MArch at an Iranian University. The daughter of two diplomats, she grew up under unique and difficult circumstances during the Iranian Revolution. This history has molded her into someone who knows how to question and examine all of the details. Since then, she has made a name for herself in Los Angeles and at iDGroup with her design vision and executive sensibilities. With over 20 years in the industry, Sadeghian has refined both her style and business acumen. As a driving core, Sadeghian places emphasis on really making a design feasible and ensuring that the crucial details of building a dream project are in place. She has adapted her designer’s visual memory to managing the numbers crucial to running a business. On the real estate side, she has become an expert on everything from locating new ventures to due diligence to property management.
Her primary role within the team is that of a skillful planner and a lead designer. She takes on the responsibility of major decision making, problem solving, and setting overarching timelines. As an executive of iDGroup, she works closely with Vance and every member of the team to advise and direct on everything from permitting to final design presentation. On any given day, she can be meeting with clients or orchestrating complex financing for today’s development world. While her roles are many, Sadeghian is the one that ultimately ensures the final design finish is true to the value and accuracy iDGroup is known for. Sadeghian came to iDGroup with a wide spectrum of design experience, including projects with Michael Laird Architects and a career at Arya Group. She has accumulated significant experience with high end properties, building Los Angeles homes by architects Gwathmey Siegel and Richard Meier. Outside of architecture, Ferial has rounded out her creative skillset by studying all aspects of art, from sketching to pastels. In her spare time, she likes to catch up on her reading in both business and psychology.
