Our shared belief in listening, dialogue, and engagement is core to our studio design process. We listen to your needs and translate these needs and challenges into an architectural solution. From experience, we understand that asking the right questions at the right time can be critical to a successful project. Our approach to design is with a focus on the human experience, and in creating thoughtful environments for the community.
We believe good design results from collaboration. Our studio environment blurs the line between art, industrial design, and design-build. We have an active artist studio and wood shop, and our team draws from a deep background in fine arts, architecture, film, wood working and construction.
Although every project is unique, we believe a clear understanding of project scope, goals, budget and schedule is key to a project’s success.
We practice Integrated Design: we focus on collaboration and communication between all those engaged in the idea, planning, design, use, construction, operation and maintenance of the building or environment. Through an iterative design process, we strive to arrive at a clarity and honesty in our designs. We maintain a consistent team and design lead throughout the project, something we believe is a critical success factor in delivering a coordinated project, on time and on budget.
Environmental sustainability is part of our studio’s DNA. We do not apply “sustainability” to a project, it is integral to our designs. From site selection, building orientation, innovative wood structural systems to geothermal systems, these sustainable solutions are all part of our design vocabulary.
At studioHuB, we take seriously our social responsibility to the profession and to the public. To this end, the principals of studioHuB volunteer their time in several ways: AIBC mentorship and oral reviews, Advisory Design Panel members, thesis advisors, guest lecturers.
