A little bit about us
Designing for the 98%
Studio N|W is a nights and weekends practice established as an identity and outlet separate from my daytime work as an employee. It is a chance for me to practice for myself and my clients, most of whom are friends and neighbors. And many are working with an architect for the first time.
In his book, Good Deeds, Good Design, Bryan Bell notes that only 2% of new homes in America are designed by architects. 1% of clients are the country’s richest and the other 1% are the poorest (architects commissioned for subsidized housing). I’ve worked for the richest and continue to work for the poorest – Studio N|W is an opportunity to work for those in the middle 98%.
