“Captivating design brought into focus, crafted for a unique context”
We are… Focal Studio Architecture | Interior Design – a Carbondale, Colorado based architecture studio primarily dedicated to custom residential architecture. With over 30 years of combined experience in the industry, Focal Studio is led by two passionate Colorado natives who branched off to serve the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond with a shared vision to provide timeless design catered to each client no matter the budget. We are as passionate about architecture as we are about relentlessly adventuring in our backyard and spending quality time with our families. Our job is (in part) our life and we strive to live life to the fullest.
We design… Authentic homes guided by clients’ dreams and sculpted through our design principles. We seek to harmonize every opportunity into minimalistic and timeless architecture. Focal Studio designs inviting and functional design solutions founded on the idea that thoughtful design prioritizes connection to nature, light, and attention to daily/seasonal rhythms that can elevate the user experience. We believe architecture is a medium and your home is sacred artwork.
We serve… The Roaring Fork Valley (Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs), and beyond with architectural design services.
Our process… The essence of each architecture design is sought through a process of finding harmony amongst all project constraints & goals – The ideal focal point discovered for each project within its own context. We are a collaborative/team-based studio, highly proficient in industry standard technologies, skilled in construction, technically savvy, and accustomed to complex project types. We highly value the contributions of each member of the project team, from clients to consultants and contractors. Our inspiration for design is often found from the seat of a mountain bike, the top of a peak, the shore of the river, a face full of powder, or reading a children’s bedtime story.
Focal core values… Integrity, Creativity, High Quality, Balance (family & work), Personal & Professional Development, Fun/Casual/Personable, Unique
