STUDIOS is an international design practice focused on working with our clients to create built environments that express the essence of their organizations. For each project, we seek to choreograph the human experience in a way that is simultaneously pragmatic and inspiring. STUDIOS is as much process-driven as results-oriented: we understand that the best design comes not from a predetermined aesthetic, but reveals itself through a process of discovery.
Our practice is led by 18 principals with diverse backgrounds in four offices (New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mumbai and Paris) . We are managed in a non-hierarchical way that calls for the highest level of contribution from each of our 250+ staff members. Designers are highly collaborative, and strive to continually advance their design expertise and technical knowledge; this has resulted in a practice that capitalizes on the collective intelligence of all individuals and offices.
At STUDIOS, we believe great design must be based on integrity, intellect, and innovation.
Integrity: Our actions provide value for our clients, foster respect for individuals, uphold personal accountability and trust among colleagues, and promote responsible stewardship over resources.
Intellect: Our work is built on a foundation of critical thinking, collaborative investigation, and intelligent problem-solving.
Innovation: Our ambition is to form the future of design. To this end, we explore new work processes, design strategies, and emerging technologies as an integral part of our work.
