CITYSTUDIOS ARCHITECTURE is a dynamic firm that provides creative solutions and vision to our clients and to the communities in which we work. Our team’s diverse professional backgrounds bring a unique breadth of experience to every project we undertake. We are one of a small handful of Woman owned (WBE and SBE) firms in the region. Our team consists of six Registered Architects and three Intern Architects. Five of our staff are LEED Accredited Professionals. With a combined total of over forty years of professional practice, of which the last fifteen were spent working together, our partners draw on a wealth of knowledge and experience in the intricacies of urban construction and historic renovation. We pride ourselves on our ability to organize often widely divergent interests and priorities, efficiently moving projects toward the final goal of successful completion. We are adept at finding innovative solutions to difficult scenarios, utilizing a deep understanding of, and proficiency with, building and zoning codes, historic guidelines and state and federal funding regulations.
The success of our projects is a result of the collaborative relationships that we establish with our clients. CITYSTUDIOS works closely with owners, developers, consultants and contractors throughout the entire process of a project. Our projects succeed because we make informed decisions based on our clients’ objectives and goals, construction budgets, scheduling requirements and design aspirations.
We are dedicated to the creation of dynamic, thriving neighborhoods which serve the needs of all who inhabit them. We believe that design has the capacity to improve the overall quality of our collective lives and that no building or project should be considered exclusive of its context. Our commitment is evidenced by our choice to locate our office in the heart of the downtown neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine, reinforcing by example the goals of our practice.
