Michael Hsu Office of Architecture believes that design is for everyone.
We design with empathy and to elicit emotion. We design for optimism. We re-imagine materials to create memorable experiences. We believe in the active collaboration of designer, client, and artisan. Our work connects us with nature and manifests a sense of wellbeing. We design spaces that engage our local, regional, and global communities.

The studio was founded in 2005 in Austin to unite people through design. We are a nationally award-winning, fully integrated architecture and interior design practice. Our work is rooted in hospitality and includes a range of project types such as large mixed-use developments, adaptive reuse projects, public realm design, architectural branding, single family homes, hotels, restaurants, workspaces, and bespoke furniture design. We work throughout Texas and across the country. Michael Hsu Office of Architecture opened a second office in Houston in 2018 and has staff members representing our firm in Dallas and Denver.
