The Kurylas Studio / Architecture was established in 1991 by Larysa Kurylas.

It is small by choice, as Larysa Kurylas believes strongly in being intimately involved, start to finish, in all of the firm’s projects.

The firm can be characterized as a ‘general practice’ – a description borrowed from the legendary DC architect Chloethiel Woodard Smith – where the same problem-solving skills, design integrity, and standards of excellence are applied to a variety of residential and commercial building types.

The attitude embodied at The Kurylas Studio is that in every project, large or small, there is the potential to create beautiful space which satisfies client’s individual needs and desires. Sometimes the most challenging constraints of a project lead to the most elegant and satisfying designs. It is this creative search for solutions which sustains the energy of the firm.
