Studio Luz Architecture and Urban Design

Cultivating Community from the Inside, Out

By Isabella DeLeo

At Studio Luz, we pride ourselves on cultivating a community of socially engaged designers.  Our tight-knit community members are also roller skaters, problem solvers and ceramists; music lovers, explorers and culinary artists.  We work hard to make sure that all of our staff are free to be fully themselves at work. We prioritize mutual respect and inclusivity within our own team and our partners.

So, whether they’re pitching ideas in a meeting or catching up at one of our regular work social activities, our hope is that everyone on our team can feel confident to share their ideas and thrive. With a collaborative work environment, we aim to provide all of our staff members with the tools they need for professional and personal growth. Combined, we have decades of experience and come from a wide array of professional and academic backgrounds.

For every project we take on, we strive for our work to leave a lasting impact on the communities we serve. We are fiercely civic-minded, working to confront inequity in design and in academic curricula; and we try to do everything we can to ensure that everyone on our team feels included and seen as well.
