Sort Studio is a Denver-based, multidisciplinary design practice for innovative and environmentally responsive architecture + design. Sort Studio is a platform for exploring form and materials, adapting built environments and creating responsive and responsible architecture and design.
We respond to specific conditions. We solve problems. We care about place and community. We want our buildings to be healthy, positive, and happy. We love materials. We love digital. We love temporary. We love old. We love surprises. We explore. We adapt. We create.
