floW design studios, llc is a multi-disciplinary design firm located in Portland, Oregon specializing in modern residential, retail and commercial building design. Our talents lie in realizing the goals of our clients through a strong collaborative process that includes: exploration and critical thinking, materials research, accurate contextual analysis, budget considerations, strong drawings and presentation.
Our goal is to work towards designing forward-looking environments. We develop futuristic architecture based on the contemporary interpretation and observation of the environment the project is built in. All of our projects – from residential complexes or offices to healthcare – have commitment to enhance and cultivate a sense of community and orientation toward nature. We offer the participants in this new environment the freedom to develop their own experience. After all what is architecture if not mastering space and light for the environment you create. Each man made environment should be in harmony with not only its inhabitants, but with also nature from which it was born.
Though our approach is often singular in its conceptual origins, we seek to create architecture that resonates with its immediate and global settings while reflecting and connecting with the character of the inhabitant. At the heart of floW design studios is the desire to continually explore the depths of our discipline and understand it as a critical cultural act that engages our most fundamental experience. We bring our clients fresh and unique concepts in design while challenging the way space is normally inhabited. The firm’s most basic convictions are grounded in the fundamental belief that great architecture is less about style than it is about discovery. It is our relentless pursuit of finding ways to connect function, context and sustainability that creates a truly unique sense of place that sets our work apart.
