Ashton Allan

Principal

“I love that at STUDIOS, we’re not serving ourselves, we’re serving society while helping people realize their visions. When we can do that well, that’s what’s satisfying.”

Test, test again, and let the best idea rise to the top. Ashton approaches design with the spirit of a fearless explorer. He knows that while an early, seemingly crazy idea may not be the answer—it could be the spark that lights the way. Ashton uncovers and asks the unasked questions to gain a thorough understanding of the client’s problem and the barriers in the way of a solution. With a full grasp of the challenge, he loves diving into complexity and formulating big-picture concepts. Ashton is proud of work that not only fulfills specific goals, but also feels distinctly of the client’s place and purpose.

Ashton enjoys the fluidity of collaboration at STUDIOS. His ability to move between genres, from master planning to interiors, encourages highly creative thinking and the making of unlikely connections. His experience includes large-scale office buildings and corporate campuses, as well as mixed-use and institutional projects that demonstrate how architecture, site, and program come together to solve complicated issues.
