ARCHITECTURE

Urban Studio offers a full range of architectural services for a wide range of project types including Private Residences, Mixed-Use Developments, Townhouses, Multi-Family Residential, Commercial/Retail, & Educational K-12.

We approach our projects as an organized multidisciplinary team. We understand that redevelopment is multifaceted with no ‘one-size fits all’ solution. We draw on the talents of our team members to consider planning, urban design, architecture, interiors, landscape architecture, historic preservation, and economic development. As a firm, we have a specific focus on improving the quality of the environment through design that is sustainable, informed, and inspiring.



LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

Urban Studio offers landscape architectural services for a wide range of project types including public parks and gardens, museums, university campuses, historic properties, streetscapes, and residential garden design.

A landscape creates the setting for the building, the street, the town, the city. This setting becomes the primary element essential in creating or maintaining the character of a place. We approach each project by exploring the existing environment and develop our design from a respect for the cultural and natural surroundings. Ultimately, we blend the old with the new to enhance a sense of place to the environments we touch.



INTERIORS

Urban Studio offers a full service interiors department. We create spaces that are attractive, productive, and well planned while employing LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) principles. We encourage and support the use of proven sustainable materials and sustainable design practices. Our design ideology is centered around supporting the well-being of the end users to developing a unique identity for each project that reflects the values of the client. Whether the space is dynamic and motivating or serene and contemplative, Urban Studio has the expertise to deliver an interior that promotes the ongoing function and delights of the user.



URBAN DESIGN & PLANNING

Our interdisciplinary team has extensive expertise in masterplanning and innovative site planning. Our projects range from large scale city masterplanning and corridor planning to mixed-use neighborhood and campus planning to individual site planning.

Our urban design and planning services include visioning, concept studies, and community design charettes.



PRE-DESIGN SERVICES

Programming, facility performance evaluation (FPE/POE), concept studies, visioning, and charettes all serve to inform the design and offer opportunities to increase participation and user input into the design process.



3D-MODELING & RENDERING

Our team is skilled at hand and computer modeling and rendering to suit the needs of the project. We use a building information modeling (BIM) system that allows enhanced visualization of the project throughout the design process.
