Who We Are

Overview

Founded in 2015, Studio 26 provides Architectural & Interior Design services to a wide range of clients. Our goal is to provide our clients with functional, attractive, and inspiring design solutions. We pride ourselves on being a design firm that works collaboratively, enthusiastically, and serve our clients with A+ quality on every project.

We give building owners the capacity to renovate existing buildings while attracting better-quality tenants and increasing their return on investment.

For select projects, we provide full Design-Build services. On these projects, we aim for a seamless, collaborative, and efficient delivery process from the initial design to the end of construction.

Our Core Values

Elevate

At the core of our architecture and interior design business is a relentless pursuit of excellence, driven by continuous improvement and a deep care for humanity and the environment. By elevating our skills and knowledge, we aim to create spaces that enrich lives and contribute to a sustainable, equitable future.

Visionary

As designers, we are driven by relentless curiosity and a desire to push boundaries, constantly seeking innovative approaches and creative solutions that challenge the status quo. Fueled by a deep sense of wonder, we are resourceful problem-solvers committed to creating spaces that inspire and transform.

Humbly Passionate

We approach our work with a deep sense of purpose and a commitment to making a positive impact, striving for justice and equity in our designs to benefit all community members. Balancing our passion for architecture and interior design with a humble, grounded approach, we stay true to our values and always strive to do what is right.

Collaborate

We believe collaboration is the foundation of great design and foster an open, inclusive environment where everyone’s ideas are welcomed and celebrated. With a spirit of fun and camaraderie, our passionate team draws on each other’s unique perspectives to create innovative solutions and shape the built environment.

JEDI Statement (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion)

We believe in human value beyond academic education, socio-economic/professional status, and station; therefore, we adhere to a non-patriarchal, nonhierarchical, radical inclusion way of being, where all voices and perspectives are heard – internally with staff and externally with partners, stakeholders, community, and clients. We understand that diverse perspectives make us better at being good humans and trustworthy stewards of the built environment.

We understand that many of us suffer a lack of resources and access in this industry due to race and nationality. It is our goal to mitigate these challenges. Our internal hiring process is equity-based, so we focus on the individual and amplify qualities of moral compass, life experience, ambition, team synergy, passion for the work, commitment to community, and social intention. We teach, learn and grow together.
