Our name “domus” is Latin for house, which reflects that most of our projects are owner occupied; houses for books and firefighters (PUBLIC), houses for children and youth (EDUCATIONAL), houses of worship (RELIGIOUS) and houses for families and seniors which they call home (RESIDENTIAL)

We are Creative: We listen to you and design a building/space to meet your needs and desires.  We excel on difficult sites and difficult approvals with local and national award winning designs that add value to your property.  By design, they are a tool that encourages interaction and strengthens your mission.

Our architecture is Sustainable: We have garnered awards based on our sustainable designs which include LEED Silver, Gold and Platinum certified projects constructed with local materials and filled with natural light.  We are helping to design a sustainable future – now.  domusststudio is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. 

Our architecture is Enriching:  Spaces that feel good to live in and add to the quality of life with indoor & outdoor visual and physical connections and spaces filled with natural light and ocean breezes.  domusstudio’s biophilic design approach is an innovative way of designing spaces that connect people with nature.

Most importantly, we are a Collaborative architectural design studio, working together with you and pooling our talent to solve your architectural design challenge. 

domusstudio architecture was founded in 1986 as Dominy + Associates Architects.
