Studio Z Design Concepts, LLC is an Award-Winning Architectural Firm specializing in Custom and Luxury Residential Architecture, Historical Restorations, and Large-Scale Renovations. Studio Z provides complete architectural services for homeowners and builders on custom and speculative homes. Our success is built on a balance of client expectations, well executed architecture and market sensitive investment. 

Studio Z has always been about our built environment enhancing a client's lifestyle.  As a team of Architects, it's our responsibility to understand our client's diverse activities and develop a plan that unifies function, financial commitment and aesthetics into a family home that compliments their personalities.  The evolution of a typical Studio Z home leads us to explore a variety of architectural styles tailored to meet the personalities of individual clients.  While the architecture styles may vary, our philosophy of integrating architecture with a property's natural characteristics enables us to maximize a client's experience throughout their home.  By working naturally with a site's contours and seamlessly transitioning to exterior spaces, our clients enjoy a unique experience both inside and out.  While our work is predominantly in the D.C. Metro area, we have been fortunate to work on projects in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Michigan, New York, Ohio, South Carolina and the coastal beach areas along the Atlantic. 

Studio Z has perfectly fit into a niche serving both homeowners and builders on custom and speculative homes.  Our success is well documented in publications such as The Washington Post, Bethesda Magazine, Annapolis Home, Home & Design Magazine and BUILD Maryland.  We have had the good fortune over the past 20 years to balance successful growth with a personalized approach to each and every client.  We are known to be builder friendly, budget conscious and maintain a deep respect for every detail that becomes someone's home.  We design homes, not houses.
