At Atelier et Alia, we value the JOY of designing and collaborating with our clients and team to bring the vision and ideas into built form. We promote an ethos of creativity and balance.
We leverage the IMPACT that thoughtful and well-considered contemporary design has on its inhabitants, its community, and its environment to create beneficial and delightful places.
We prioritize the SUSTAINABLE approach of putting multiple components in balance. This strategy encompasses utilizing green building techniques, considering the larger environment, and harmonizing the project priorities with its constraints.
Successful projects are products of great collaborations. Our firm name is a reflection of this sentiment. Et alia, meaning and others, is a perpetual reminder of the teamwork that creates great buildings and spaces.
We engage your project with an inquisitive nature, digging into the specifics and finding hidden opportunities and efficient solutions to meet your goals effectively. When needed, we work closely with engineers and other design disciplines to develop a comprehensive project. We value understanding the project from multiple perspectives and vetting the range of approaches and solutions. We emphasize clear graphic, verbal, and written communication as key to a successful project. We carry this attention to detail and collaboration throughout the design and construction process.
Co-founders Kristen Giannattasio and Christina Marsh met on the first day of class in graduate school where they quickly became friends and collaborators. After 20+ years of working at award-winning firms in Boston and the San Francisco Bay area, they founded Atelier et Alia. Together they bring a wealth of experience in projects of all scales, including furniture and installations, residential homes, and large academic and institutional projects.
“I’ve worked with Kristen and Christina from Atelier et Alia on several projects over the course of the last 3 years. They’re professional, responsive and have a great design style. Their deliverables have exceeded my expectations in terms of level of detail as well as presentation style and quality. I look forward to working with them again, and have recommended the firm several times to clients and colleagues. I trust that anyone I refer will be treated well!” – Matt C.
