Every human, plant, and animal deserves a dignified, healthy, and equitable experience. To come as close to this as we can, Studio Ma undertakes deep research into every project’s site, its future inhabitants and neighbors, and its surrounding ecology.
We want to see our architecture create joy and a high quality of life, even with a modest construction budget. We seek to challenge/confront inequalities formed by earlier development that privileged one group over others, even if unintentionally done. An architecture for everyone supports idiosyncratic experiences of a place and resolves disparities among us.
This practice, when coupled with our emphasis on joy and livability, results in architecture that aims to confront inequalities, improve dis-ease, and resolve social, political, and environmental disparities. We bring a spirit of resourcefulness to solving technical, social, and budgetary constraints, and seek with every project to marry pragmatism to optimism.
