“It’s a shame to only have dreams at night. You should have a few opportunities during the day.” This wistful quote from Stephen Alesch speaks volumes about the spaces he and Robin Standefer create as architects and designers. Their firm, Roman & Williams, is named after their grandparents and pays homage to a different era.
Together, they evoke moods through textures and meaningful objects that linger somewhere between past and present. Their work is infused with memory that invites participants to connect with a more romantic time.
Stephen and Robin are anything but minimalists. Texture is very much a part of the firm’s identity and their studio is no different. Scarred tables, found objects, stacked books and source materials fill the office – nothing is too precious or pristine.
