Staffan Svenson, R.A. interest in Architecture stems from working on sculpture installations in rural up-state NY in the late 1980’s. After entering Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s School of Architecture in 1990 he graduated in 1995 with honors and moved to Georgia where he eventually went to work for Surber Barber Choate & Hertlein Architects. In 2000 he started Dencity LLC with current partner Bryan Russell. While his background consists primarily of high-end single family residential work and smaller commercial projects, the skills he has amassed translate well into all kinds of projects at different scales where there is a high level of design and craft. At Dencity his projects have produced work rich in materiality, craft and transparency. When not at Dencity he enjoys drawing, painting and building furniture.
Dencity believes in a strong collaborative effort with our client that includes: exploration and critical thinking, material research, contextual analysis, strong drawings, continuous pricing and construction schedule reviews from design until client move in, and exhaustive construction quality control. Rigorous attention to detail, through each phase of the project, allows Dencity to create work that we believe will satisfy our most discerning clients and ourselves.
