Chase’s approach to architecture beautifully marries vision with pragmatism. His designs focus on implementation and constructability from their inception. He believes that the ability to design with construction in mind elevates the practice of architecture. Very much craft-focused, Chase contributes a high degree of thoughtfulness to STUDIO
’s design process. As a designer, Chase’s unique ability to pull conceptual thinking from the early phases all the way through documentation is what sets him apart. He has always enjoyed the finer points of design; the pieces that allow people to engage with their built environment at a human scale.
If he is not doodling in a journal or on a piece of trace paper, Chase enjoys almost anything that involves being outside or active. Being outside is a constant reminder that everything on earth is precious and motivates him to actively make sustainable choices throughout his design process.
