Our Atelier

Atelier DSS was founded in the Spring of 2022. The studio aims to create an architecture of its time and place with a touch of playfulness. The studio is located in Miami's Little Havana, a vibrant cultural and artistic hub. Practicing in "The Magic City" requires us to address our present challenges and opportunities as a growing metropolis, while responsibly planning for a resilient future.
