North Arrow is a design studio that specializes in cultural and residential projects. Cultural projects are finely considered to clearly express the point of view at hand, be it a thesis of an exhibition, an institutional or civic identity, or an individual’s personal collection. Our residential work is inspired both by the location and existing qualities of the site, and on the understanding that a home is an essential point from which a life is anchored, oriented, and lived.
Creative and positive, we approach each project with a hands on process. The studio grows from and is supported by its valued collaborations with other professionals, artists and craftspeople. Our integrated approach between client, designer, and builder ensures that projects are refined, thoughtful, and complete.
We acknowledge the individual factors that define a project, and shape them to creatively satisfy the functional and ephemeral expectations of the stakeholders. Attentive listening and extensive research lead to to design, working drawings and fabrication. Sketching/model making, and prototyping are critical to the exploration and resolution of the project. Original ideas result in clear manifestations; they are always materially expressive and experientially rich.
