Curioso is a design studio creating distinctly unique, commercially viable, and functionally attentive places for people. The studio is an assemblage of architects, interior designers, artists and business-minded thinkers who adapt to project scope, goals and needs, all the while working collaboratively to design meaningful experiences.
We design with you. We listen to your stories and observe how you practice your craft, whatever it might be. We get into your stuff, roll up our sleeves and leap into your world to deliver brand experiences that are meaningful and memorable.
Our work ranges from the physical, to the digital, to the emotional— yet the objective remains constant; to create memorable and meaningful experiences with the power to transform.
Simply stated, we aim to work on projects that are as much felt as they are seen, always with the goal of creating personal connections. When people feel connected, when they care, they act with empathy, with kindness, with enthusiasm, and businesses thrive.
Simply put, the nature of our business is project based. We provide design consultancy on a per project basis. However where we start to feel like our work goes beyond just ‘a project’ is when we see that it has the ability or potential to impact more than just those that directly engage with it.
It’s actually quite like grassroots community building.
The projects that we work on provide jobs and livelihoods for entire families. It allows our clients to do what they love. It allows them to connect with their neighbors. They give people a place to go, to be themselves, to socialize, to forge relationships. These projects, when approached through true collaboration, human insight, and love, have the ability to build community. It wasn’t necessarily where we thought we were going when we started Curioso. But, it’s where we want to be.
We find ourselves now, seeking even greater purpose in our work. That means continually asking how, as a collection of designers creating a body of work, can we make a greater, more meaningful impact.
