ISO Ideas is an architectural research and design collaborative based in San Francisco, USA. The founding members graduated from MIT, UPenn and Princeton University and have previously managed major architectural projects in internationally acknowledged firms, including SOM, HOK, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Kengo Kuma and Associates. We bring this experience to the project we work on here in California.


We believe that architecture should radiate the warmth of tactility and spatial quality. While buildings nowadays are no longer crafted but assembled, we are devoted to bringing back humanistic care and natural tectonics to all of our projects, ranging from residential, cultural, commercial, institutional, interior and product design. We provide design consultant service for small to medium size projects here in California and other state where we are licensed.


In parallel with architectural practices, ISO endeavors to explore interdisciplinary research and introspective critique. We hope to facilitate theoretical discourse as the vehicle for designing more innovative and kind-hearted works that better serve the communities.
