Clay Holden Architects focuses on the integration of architecture, interiors, landscape, and graphics/branding across their projects at all scales. Our design exploration targets a balanced approach to authentic materiality and color, fusing imagination and innovation with relevance and function to find clever solutions that address multiple issues simultaneously. We are adept creative directors who can seek out, analyze, and apply a complete array of critical information to any design problem. While maintaining a keen eye for the highest level of quality, we are interested in the physical qualities that bring architecture to life – the making and crafting, always with originality and authenticity down to the smallest detail. As an interdisciplinary and collaborative design studio, we are always challenging assumptions and pushing boundaries to progress the results of architectural practice and ensure the best outcomes for our clients.
