Founded as an architectural design lab immersed in the synthesis of conceptual discourse with emerging material practice, SCH+ARC Studio seeks to provide an innovative and divergent space for research and design. Engaging in programs of all scales, the studio approaches each project by challenging speculative concepts against site specific strategies. SCH+ARC has recently completed several collaborative projects in New York and Las Vegas.
