About Studio 6

Studio 6 Architects is a forward thinking design practice, offering our clients fresh and innovative solutions that respond to context, are environmentally sustainable, and provide our clients with relevant and enduring projects. Founded in 1919, we have over a century of history behind us, and are looking for clients and projects that will help us build the foundation for the next 100 years. As designers, we believe that successful architecture is possible for all clients. Design is a process in which study leads to exercises in trial and error, which results in creative and bold solutions to unique situations. You provide the vision and we can provide the answer. As architects we believe we have a responsibility both to our clients and the community at large. Let’s do projects that are a benefit to both. Let’s make our communities more livable.
