Todd DeGarmo, FAIA

Principal, Chief Executive Officer

"I’ve never been more excited about what we bring to the table to solve the issues we face today—the notion of equity.”

Todd is proudly unconventional. His constant quest for innovation is aimed squarely at solving clients’ problems, reaching their goals, and elevating people’s everyday experience. Todd and his teams excel at complex projects where there aren’t obvious solutions. His extensive work in interiors has been widely celebrated, likely because he simply views interiors as architecture. Todd’s refusal to separate work into silos—his openness to new ways of thinking—is a hallmark of STUDIOS’ approach. Through decades of experience, he continues to feel incredibly fortunate to be able to come to work and imagine the best possible design that he can imagine for each and every client.

Todd's depth of experience has made him a national voice for great design, being recognized and having work published across The New York Times, WIRED Magazine, Business Week and Architectural Record. As an acknowledged leader and proponent for the transformative power of design, Todd serves on the Executive Committee for the New York Restoration Project where he underwrote the regeneration of a garden in the Bronx, as well as on the Federal City Council where he led the master planning effort to revive the Carver Langston neighborhoods in Washington, DC. He is also a Trustee of the University of Cincinnati Foundation, the Museum of the City of New York, and the National Building Museum. Todd’s longtime belief in working in partnership with people from diverse backgrounds to innovate in design has been recognized by his induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame and by his Fellowship in the AIA.
