studioPATINA is a collaborative design studio of talented designers located in the heart of South Louisiana. Our practice works with our clientele to ask and answer questions, in levels of scales and detail. We seek the ethical place between success and consequence, as we are fully aware that everything we do has far-reaching implications, well beyond building. We treat every project as a potential benefactor to a sustainable environment, local economies, and our own community. Initially, clients contact us to bring beauty into the spaces they inhabit. They are in agreement with our convictions; that beauty – alone – is sustainable, and architecture and design– when done well – is living art.
Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, our design philosophy embodies and promotes the rich cultural and architectural heritage of South Louisiana. Our firm is well versed in the regional vernacular of South Louisiana and is dedicated to preserving the unique cultural heritage that makes us unique worldwide.
Each of studioPATINA’s projects strives to enrich one's experience of space, light, context, materials, and craftsmanship through the experience of architecture. We believe that exemplary design not only provides functional space, but acts as a lens through which we view, understand, and appreciate the natural and man-made world.
At studioPATINA we deliver a unique and personal product. Although projects range from new construction at the civic scale to the smallest residential remodels, each design opportunity brings creative potential. studioPATINA’s strength is transforming this potential into reality
