KEO studioworks is a collaborative studio with a design approach focused on people and place; deriving design solutions through program, context, climate, culture, and health.
With a team having a broad range of experience in the commercial, public, and private sectors, large and small scale, we bring a valuable depth of experience to our clientele and projects. Our approach is collaborative as we guild and coalesce vision and opportunity with context, site, function, and program.
Our interest in wellbeing and human flourishing has drawn us into neuroscience and biology research as relates to human habitation. In practice, we consider the biological and cognitive effects of the built environment and have developed design methodologies and approaches for creating environments that support occupant health and wellbeing.
