The Anderson Studio is comprised of global travelers, reveling in the discoveries they bring to bear on every aspect of our luxurious designs. These experiences reveal different ways of living and the inextricable link between architecture and interior design. Unique customs and cultures offer insight and similarities across the human experience that is translated into fine architecture and interior design—each molded to meet the needs and desires of every individual client.

We believe our clients are critical as the most interesting and valuable component of our design process. Their preferences, inclinations, goals and dreams set the trajectory for exploration and discovery. While Anderson Studio’s design philosophy is heavily influenced by classicism and modernism, direct awareness of regional traditions and study of place ensure our designs root themselves into the fabric of their location. We seek visionary clientele and believe through applied collaboration, our architects and designers can devise a custom luxury home catered to your unique dreams.

“We are thrilled with our beautiful Kiawah beach house, designed by Scott Anderson, Anderson Studio.  There were many dedicated and creative young talents at Anderson Studio who contributed to this project.  We selected Anderson Studio based on their previous home designs, and AS combined those elements with images from our brains and dreams, to create our home.  Thank you Anderson Studio!”
