We focus exclusively on environments through the lens of interior architecture—a radical idea in 1984, when IA was founded. We lead in the strategy and design of built environments, transforming organization culture and enhancing people’s lives.
Through innovation, research, and building on smart, highly creative solutions that embody our clients’ brands, we advance the field. As an employee-owned firm, our diverse and multi-talented professionals are passionate, intense, and deeply client focused.
We’re inspired working alongside our clients to resolve complex issues and design highly energized environments where people thrive. Through our work we strive to share our passion with our clients.
