ELLIPSIS is more than a company. It is a school of thought. We are a studio motivated to empower our clients with the tools necessary to craft their everyday lives.
Our work stems from a collective commitment to rigorous curiosity. We find interest in the simplest of things and dig relentlessly to uncover interesting questions that, in turn, fuel our design work. We are driven by the ‘what if’s ‘and the ‘why not’s‘ amidst everyday life. These become the basis on which rich investigations and thoughtful executions of our work are formed. We wonder like children and design like watchmakers. The thoughtful marriage of focused curiosity and a dedicated working process have been the undertone of each of our diverse projects. These become the catalysts for rich discussions about design, architecture and the opportunities at play in the world around us.
We find value in the power of meaningful design and its ability to improve lives. Architecture can be more than a just a clever means to an end. It can enrich, empower and inspire. It can make us think, make us laugh, surprise us and make us wonder. Our work is driven by a love of the unexpected. With an ever-present urge to question the norms of everyday life, we are eager to uncover new and interesting uses for ordinary things. We work hard to marry creative vision with articulate resolution by maintaining a keen eye toward detailing and focusing intently on the craft of assembly.
As a studio, our work has received national and international recognition and has been published and exhibited widely. Our success stems from an acute understanding of our clients’ goals and aspirations, which play a fundamental role in our design process. Drawing on our fluency in progressive technologies and sustainable expertise, we strive to deliver projects that are distinct, beautiful and are defined by personal meaning. . .
