a look into our studio

Studio DO {Dhillon & Others}, is a Collaborative boutique Architectural & Interiors atelier. We specialize in renovations, downsizing, and creating memorable and lasting spaces. Our design approach, is based on collaboration and respect, and incorporates ideas rooted in a considered, modernist principle of ‘less is more’ with a bit of sparkle, which we call Bold Simplicity.

We are committed to the concept of total design whereby all aspects of spatial experience are considered as a unified and complimentary whole. ‘Every outside has an inside’ and that inside should reveal and extend the stylistic potential of the overall space and, most importantly, the vision of our client. To that end we work closely with you to find the best possible design solution for you and for the way you want to live.
