Project experience includes multi-family housing, restaurants, country clubs, event spaces, boutique hotels and even cruise ships! We are especially excited about the inroads ID Studios is making in the hospitality and senior living arenas. As we take on more senior living projects, our designers are integrating the resort and hospitality experiences into these projects that appeal to our retiring population. Hospitality design elements are also showing up in our corporate and creative office space. The common denominator in all of these design solutions is blending work, life, wellness and play. These unique spaces fit to our client’s needs, individual experiences and truly define a new genre of ‘place’.

    Our industry partners know us as a trusted advisor in the corporate and higher education realm and we hope to inspire more introductions and connections in the hospitality and senior living world as our portfolio expands. We intend to provide the hospitality and senior living industry the same high standards, knowledge base and creativity that we have been providing since our beginning 14 years ago.

    Stay tuned for more new and exciting hospitality and senior living projects from ID Studios. In the meantime, take a look at some of our latest projects in the works.

    This year’s theme was “Many Hearts Make a Home”. We know that dogs warm our hearts and are family members in many homes, so Jeni Champion and Mary Ford took the lead to design a house for our furry, canine family members. Spooners Woodworks did an excellent job at executing the design and Sherwin Williams provided the paint and painting supplies Dal-Tile and National Office Furniture sponsored other materials and accessories.

  9. Meet Amy Morway of ID Studios in Solana Beach

    SD Voyager interviewed Founding Principal of ID Studios, Amy Morway about her story and history in design.

    IDStudiosTeam

    Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Morway.

    Amy, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
    My love of design and architecture began when I was fairly young. I found myself fascinated by buildings and how they were constructed and then soon realized I was consistently drawn to design, visual arts, and the built environment. As a highly visual person, if something felt out of order in my world, I immediately wanted to change it and create a feeling of balance and beauty. By the time I was a teenager, I became more attuned to the fact that your surroundings can have a HUGE impact on the way that you feel and function. So, it’s no surprise that I found my passion and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Soon after, I obtained my Certification in Interior Design (CID) in California, and then became a LEED Accredited Professional.

  10. Corporate Branding in The Built Environment

    Moz Metals has posted an article about Corporate Branding in The Built Environment which includes an ID Studios client, Moss Adams.

    With branding all around us in both the physical and digital world, corporate identity has seeped into nearly every aspect of daily life. In the 21st century, we have to ask ourselves: how can a brand establish a unique identity without getting lost in this information overload? How can a brand evoke industry values of technology, hard work, and innovation through the lived experience of its physical spaces? How can an office create a positive response from users through branding?
