Civic Design Studios is a newly formed design and build shop whose portfolio is powered by local community. Via collaboration with schools and nonprofit organizations, it designs and builds products- playgrounds, galleries, studios- that enhance public space and allow for play and learning.
Civic Design Studio applies a human-centered design approach to everything we do. What is produced, is informed and driven by the solutions and experience clients identify as a priority. For instance, a sunlit but empty hallway connecting two larger spaces can be transformed into a warm reading nook with a mobile book cabinet able to store comfortable seating.
From the outside, we can imagine what is possible but often cannot see what is needed. When an idea emerges, the Studio utilizes the latest CNC machinery and technology to complement traditional craftsmanship and determine the most efficient method of production. As a collective of artists, designers, technologists and builders with a passion for creating beautiful objects and environments, anything can be moved from idea to product.
