Stephen Cornelius, AIA


“I’ve always been observant. I grew up in a big family, and while everyone was running around and doing their thing, I’d just sit back and watch. Take it all in.”

Stephen is a natural listener. With his innate powers of perception and ability to quickly absorb information, he is adept at anticipating people’s preferences and needs—a skill that allows him to build trust both with his clients and within his teams. He is also an avid researcher and enjoys the process of uncovering the best solution for any design challenge.

Stephen joined STUDIOS in 2016, and has worked on a variety of project types, from dining and retail to student life and housing, and workplace projects for tech, entertainment, and law clients. With his strong technical background, creative problem solving skills, and great design sense, he is a valued member on any team.
