Shah Architecture + Interiors is a team of talented designers and professionals that are obsessed with thoughtful design and spaces that create a positive emotion. We work collaboratively with homeowners, investors, institutions, and property management teams to deliver a professional design service that produces high-quality designs and hand-crafted solutions for each client. We simply assemble materials, objects, light, and history. But the results are beautiful spaces that tell a unique story.
