Connecting people through space
At Centerfield Studio, our projects start with a good conversation. We listen, ask questions and dig deep until we have a shared understanding of the human, practical, technical and creative challenges ahead. Our designs are based on core principles: be authentic, make it simple, sustainable, and make it “wow.”
What we do:
:: Ground-Up Architectural Design
:: Landscape Design
:: 3D visualization
:: Project Planning
