Home Studios is a design firm based in Brooklyn. As a former fiction editor, Oliver Haslegrave founded the studio to tell the stories of inspired outsiders through the artforms of architecture and interior design.
Outsiders are who the studio designs for: confident individuals who value diversity of expression, playful curiosity, devotion to detail and the primacy of emotion over conventional thought and trends.
As a close-knit, collaborative team of 12, the studio combines their accomplished backgrounds in architecture, interiors, custom fabrication and fine art to illuminate the stories of our clients through a process that is intuitive, exacting and attentive.
Beginning in 2009, Home Studios quickly gained a reputation for crafting cult favorite bars and restaurants in the East Village and Greenpoint, building every element of the space themselves on site. These influential projects include Elsa, Manhattan Inn, Goat Town and Tørst.
Their recent designs for Gwen, The Spaniard and Bibo have been recognized as among the best in the country. The studio has been featured in The New York Times, T Magazine, Architectural Digest, New York and Wallpaper, and has been placed twice on the Sight Unseen Hot List.
Long known for the singular look and feel of their hospitality projects, many of which are almost entirely composed of custom works, the studio recently began residential commissions. In 2020 their first New York residence on Bond Street was completed, with several more currently underway.
Homework, the studio’s collectible furniture and lighting collection, debuted at Sight Unseen Offsite in 2017.
Oliver Haslegrave has a BA in Film Studies from Wesleyan University and worked as a Fiction Editor at Little, Brown prior to founding the studio.
