IDGROUP

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

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.
