Studio West Office

Studio West’s office renovation showcases our design philosophy: careful consideration of what’s valuable and historic, alongside contemporary interventions. Before undertaking the renovation, which utilized historic tax credits, Studio West carefully researched the history of the former corner store pharmacy, constructed in 1910. The interior retains the most significant historic elements, bead board walls, tin-coated steel ceiling, and original tile flooring, while providing new contemporary oak and maple millwork and furnishings with classic modern furnishings and fixtures. 

Historic commercial corner store transformed into a contemporary design office

The office is in the heart of a mixed-use commercial and residential stretch of the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, just blocks from the historic French Quarter. The location provides ample options for mid-day coffee and interactions with our neighbors. To embody Studio West’s values of staff well-being, Studio West designed the exterior side yard as a lushly planted private garden. The furnished back patio is relaxing spot for lunches and company events and provides a place to rest and recharge.
