Founded in 1995, Slant Studio’s projects range in scale from houses to live/work conversions to residential and commercial interiors.

We work in a modern idiom, stressing an economy of means in design. Our work emphasizes a creative use of materials and an open, undogmatic design process. Each project is a collaboration with our client and their specific needs.
