why Studio 8

At Studio Eight Design, our goal is to make a positive impact on the built environment by considering the big picture for our clients, building users, and communities.  We work to provide the highest level of service to our clients by listening carefully, paying attention to details, and providing creative solutions to any problem.  Regardless of the type or size of the project, we are personally invested and committed to excellence in everything we do.

who we are

We are creative problem-solvers, team-players, and passionate individuals that enjoy unique opportunities in partnership with our clients.  Pushing ourselves beyond the obvious solutions allows us to arrive at more meaningful architecture.  Our team chemistry is our greatest strength. We take the concept of “studio” beyond the physical arrangement of our office.  We tap into the individual strengths of each team member on every design challenge, always maintaining an open, fun environment that fosters the creative design process.


Studio 8 Design is moving!  Our new office is located at 56 Lindsley Avenue, near the Rutledge Hill & Rolling Mill Hill neighborhoods in downtown Nashville.  Moving trucks come on August 10th & 11th, so please update your address books, and come visit us in our new home!
