Studioful Design

Studioful Design

Studioful practices participatory design with people, places, and ideas.

Founded by Claudia Paraschiv in 2016, Studioful is a woman-owned, social enterprise engaged in architecture, community art, and neighborhood design. 

The practice is driven by the pressing need in architecture to engage people to participate in the creation of meaningful worlds - physical, social, environmental, and personal. 

Design is as a powerful tool to manifest our personal and collective values into beneficial built form. Through participatory design, we create purposeful, resourceful, and beautiful projects that connect people to place, to each other, and to themselves.


Affirmative Art  is a workshop-based process to identify personal and collective dreams

Community Design Events are community workshops where communities are equitable design partners for capital projects such as parks, streetscapes, and library renovations. 

Creative Art Networks are community-created art installations to explore local social, environmental, and policy issues.

Participatory Architecture is a genuine dialogue of discovery through design. Together, we create architecture that critically helps you succeed in your endeavor, whether social, commercial, or personal.

Public Art Salon is a dedicated series of community-driven, project-based workshops for physical improvements in your neighborhood or public space.
