OUR MISSION is to create your perfect, custom space.  It will be beautiful – crafted to suit your individual aesthetic.  It will be functional – designed to solve spatial challenges, and to provide you with a comfortable, and livable space.  It will be mindful – mindful of your budget, of your desired scope and size, mindful of the environment, and of anything else you deem worthy to consider.

OUR PERSPECTIVE is formed by a reverence for classical architecture and beauty, yet punctuated by a passion for modern design that is fresh and innovative.

OUR APPROACH is flexible and responsive to you, our client.  No matter if you are someone who knows exactly what you want, or if you are someone who desires some guidance with defining your style, we will be there every step of the way to assist you with your vision.

OUR EXPERIENCE covers every area of a design, and our expertise extends to a variety of projects, be they residential design, commercial design, or professional styling assignments.  For residential projects and renovations, we are able to produce the schematics necessary for permitting and general construction.  For commercial projects and new construction, we frequently work in-tandem with both architectural and engineering teams.  For professional and editorial styling, we provide both creative direction, and accessory selection to achieve the perfect ambiance for both indoor and outdoor spaces.

OUR TEAM is a trusted network of professionals who have been collaborating on projects, together, for over 10 years.  Comprised of architects, planners, builders, installers, and artisans, our team members are committed to delivering a superior product.  We are based in Tucson, Arizona, but we also work nationally.  We have supervised projects in metropolitan Phoenix, Newport Beach, California, and on the island of Puerto Rico.  We welcome the opportunity to work on creative ventures that are outside our current locale.

OUR PRINCIPAL is Elizabeth Przygoda-Montgomery.  She has over fifteen years of experience in commercial and residential design.  Her hallmark is a clean and modern aesthetic, yet she enjoys creating within a variety of styles, which are guided by her clients’ tastes.  Her designs are pragmatic – they answer how a space should be laid out, in order to maximize flow and function.  She is attentive – her designs are thoughtfully crafted with her clients’ desires at the forefront.  She insists on quality and longevity – the materials she uses, and the feel of the design must stand the test of time, as each project is viewed as an investment.  Finally, she does not forget the “magic” – Elizabeth’s favorite aspect of the design comes with layering on fresh elements (such as lighting, furniture, and accessories,) to create a feeling that is “just right” for the client.  Educated in Fine Arts from the University of Arizona, Elizabeth also draws on her travels through the Caribbean, Turkey, Thailand, France, and South America to inspire her unmistakable designs.
