JOW is a full-service architecture and interior design studio that crafts joyful spaces to elevate the experience of daily life. We are a research driven practice whose projects are characterized by their elegant geometries and exhibit a deep understanding of material detail. We work across project types including affordable and high-end residential, commercial, mixed-use, hospitality, furniture design, and art installations.
Our studio is committed to sustainable building and works with communities to identify opportunities for how design can be leveraged as a catalyst for change. We believe in an architecture that is in critical dialogue with history, culture, and the institutions around us. Each project is a collaborative opportunity to both re-articulate old processes and discover the new.
