blank studio design + architecture was created to honor the capacity for architecture to challenge, inspire, and elevate design awareness in an environment that is directed toward increasingly simplistic and synthetic solutions. The design process centers upon investigation and synthesis, the experiential use of space, an authentic expression of materiality, and the engagement of the senses. Within this inclusive method of design, blank studio endeavors, through its work, to transcend meaninglessness and create that which is a testimony to the potential of the designed environment.
In addition to realized projects, blank studio actively participates in the theoretical realm through teaching and by taking part in various local and international design competitions. As an ever present concern in our natural and built environments today, explorations into sustainable technology and practices inform much of the current work of blank studio.
