We design spaces with an inclusive, human focused perspective, weaving rigorous design thinking into the experience of space. 

We believe in the power of the small, always delivering beyond the brief. Our name reflects our values of smart growth, accountability, and the highest standards of one-on-one client care.

It takes a village to create something special and we build creative partnerships with our clients and collaborators.

Our Team

Soo Yoo


With over 10 years of experience in various fields including Broadway set design, TV production and commercial interior design, Soo believes in the importance of meaningful narrative and appropriate design solutions to elevate the human experiences within the built environment.

Soo’s degree in both Painting from RISD and Interior Design from Parsons the New School for Design, have formed her creative outlook and design philosophy to think in a multifaceted and interdisciplinary way, creating environments though texture, depth, and spatial arrangements that are cohesive and meaningful to people who experience them.


Angela Bouton


Angela’s discerning appreciation for art and culture, leaves her constantly inspired by the people and world around her.


After completing an MFA in Interior Design from The Pratt Institute, Angela found herself drawn to the idea that by understanding human nature, perception, and culture, we can create more holistic and interesting spaces that people will want to inhabit. She loves to mix timeless and contemporary elements of design to create beautiful, thoughtful spaces that encompass an intuitive juxtaposition of conceptual and classical design, celebrating the past whilst designing the future.


The suffix “-ette” denotes a smaller version, the embodiment of a lean and nimble form.
