Studio DIAA

About Studio DIAA:

design, interiors, architecture, + atmosphere

Studio DIAA designs atmospheres where integrated architecture, interiors and custom objects merge to create holistic environments. We craft spaces with a distinctive tactile quality, artfully combining light, sound and materials. Our architecture and interior designs engage the senses, paying close attention to the nuances that shape experience.

We strive for site-specific designs that offer a heightened awareness of place, informed by an attentiveness to the surrounding environment and needs of the inhabitants. Working in close collaboration with clients, craftspeople, artisans, consultants and builders, we cultivate a shared experience of design. We believe in revealing the inherent beauty of materials and capturing natural qualities of the environment: light, wind, water and land. Atmosphere is about finding beauty in subtlety. We create intimate and thoughtful buildings, spaces and objects that aspire to move the human spirit.
