Who We Are

Studio Square is an Award-Winning full-service Interior Design and Architecture firm.  

We guide our clients through the design process, shop all finishes, and we navigate the construction process.  Our highest honor is the result, a transformed space to fit our clients’ lifestyle.


Elise Blatt founded Studio Square in 1992 combining her background in Architecture, Interior Design and Historic Preservation. Studio Square is modeled after the prestigious firms she worked in both New York City and New Jersey, after attending Miami University of Ohio and Columbia University.

Elise is extremely proud of the expert Staff and Collaborators that comprise the team at Studio Square. Their widespread knowledge, great spirit, design talent and focus on each project adds ease to what can otherwise be a daunting process. This team includes project designer and manager Danielle Hricay whose attention to project coordination is unmatched.
