Smith Hanes Studio creates impassioned restaurant, hospitality and lifestyle projects. They fashion spaces where people live and entertain themselves. Their work encompasses everything in the realm of hospitality. They have designed restaurants, bars, clubs, coffee shops, cafes, homes, art galleries, an award-winning hotel in Portland, and have even contributed to a town design (Serenbe). Their clients are the best in their field.... entrepreneurs, chefs, business people who understand the importance of experience. They are the kind of people who know that what the environment they create looks and feels like will make a difference.
Every project is original and genuine. While some place a “skin of decoration” on a project, SHS studies the client’s needs, goals and listens to their dreams. They encourage the client to make inspiration boards, make some of their own, then with all that ammo, they stab at a design informed by all this. Known for elegantly proportioned rooms, with an ineffable quality to them, the space, the people, the experience all vibe together in a Smith Hanes project.
