    STUDIO MA (www.studioma.com) has risen to national prominence quickly while maintaining and fostering the camaraderie and teamwork of a small practice.  Our work advances sustainable design, including net zero energy and water use, while making livable and beautiful buildings. The philosophy of the Studio is embodied by the concept of Ma, a Japanese term that acknowledges the dynamic relationship between objects and their surrounding environment. This concern extends our practice to multiple scales, from the making of a residence to the complex urban and natural contexts at universities and cultural institutions where we are exploring how buildings can become more restorative through concepts such as biophilia and biomimicry.

    We hold ourselves and each another to high professional standards while enjoying the opportunities life gives us. We are a growing practice, more laterally organized, encourages and fosters ownership.  Our clients include prominent colleges and universities, museums and cultural institutions, developers and individuals.  We are one of 16 national firms awarded international work with the US Department of State, beginning this fall, 2018 through 2023.  Founded in 2003, Studio Ma is a woman-owned business seeking more diversity as we grow. We have a sister company, artHAUS Projects, that develops urban housing.
