About Us
Freund Studio’s Design strategies:
Design is a collaborative process.
We work with our client’s desires and budget to create elegant spaces.
Modernist design can blur the distinction between interior and exterior: creating a sense of space expanding beyond physical bounds.
Project details are customized to maximize performance for the particular client, program, and design problem.
Integration of craftsmanship, technology and art is our goal.
