ISTUDIO is a full-service architecture, design, and planning firm dedicated to the design of livable, sustainable communities. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for people by improving the places we inhabit. We incorporate the practice of environmentally responsible or “green” architecture to provide healthy places to live, work, learn, + play.
ISTUDIO offers expertise in planning and design to communities of all sizes.
We bring years of experience in facilitation, coalition-building and design
education to aid the process of developing projects from the “ideas”
stage to construction and habitation. We have years of experience working
with municipalities to provide institutional and community-based facilities.
ISTUDIO has been at the forefront of the industry-wide movement toward
environmental sustainability from the start. We understand that our clients
envision versatile, high-performance, healthy facilities that meet the
community’s needs with delight. Our experience translates into buildings
that use less nonrenewable energy, produce little pollution, and cost a
minimum of energy dollars – all while increasing the comfort, health, and
safety of the people who use them. We produced a roadmap for achieving this
with the “Design Process Checklist” for successful green projects.
ISTUDIO is an award-winning woman-owned firm formed in 1999 and registered as a local, small, resident-owned business in Washington DC.
