Business Description
Studio S Squared Architecture, Inc. was founded on the belief that client involvement and a positive relationship is the key to a successful project, and we are committed to a team-oriented approach in all phases of the design process. We believe in the value of collaboration within our office, with our consultant team, the building contractor, and most importantly, the owner.

Our practical experience covers the entire spectrum of projects, from small commercial remodels to large corporate campuses, from single family homes to multi-family buildings. The common thread in our buildings is the belief that architecture can lift the spirit, and that great relationships make great architecture possible.

Great architecture involves more than using our expertise to navigate governmental approvals. Clients look to us to take their ideas and elevate them into a design uniquely tailored to their site, personal, and business needs. We work to keep the lines of communication with clients open at all times to ensure that we can craft a building that is uniquely their own. With this approach, it is possible to create a “signature” building with every project we design.

Our firm is committed to conservation and wise use of our natural resources, and minimizing our projects' impact on both the built and un-built environment. We also commit a percentage of our billable hours every year to local non-profits in need of pro bono architectural services.

I have used a run of free standing wardrobes to create a dressing room section in my large master bedroom. The back of the wardrobes act as a feature wall for the bed placed against it. Creates two rooms from one and provides great storage!

Great article, love the examples! It is has really made me think about cabinets not only as storage but as an architectural element as well.
