TOIstudio was born on the dream of multidisciplinary collaboration back when Dru was a naive student in undergraduate school, formed primarily as an excuse to hang out with interesting people of varied fields that were much smarter and more interesting than he was. In 2010 TOIstudio became a way to actively search out interesting projects and opportunities from behind the desk of traditional architecture firms. In 2013, with the prize of a 2013 Creative Workforce Fellowship, TOIstudio began its official foray as a Cleveland based Architecture and Planning firm, founded upon tight knit collaborative relationships with clients and other practictioners invested in their communities and wanting to do more than simply constructing a building. Sure, we have access to (and use) fancy software to create 3D models to coordinate with consultants and basically prototype your project before construction begins, but since we also enjoy building things ourselves we tend to bring a level of thoughtfulness and detail that means construction is simplified and less prone to mistakes.
We may be young, but we've been practicing architecture in Northeast Ohio for the past 10 years and have worked on a variety of recognized projects, under some of the best mentors around, and are ready to add our unique voice to the region's fabric. You can take a look at a variety of project types we focus on ranging from Architecture to Installation/Fabrication on the nav bar above.
