DAS Architects believes that in order to truly deliver on a client’s needs, you must look at space holistically. That any space is a blend of architecture and interior design. That what you put in a room, is just as important as how the room is built. And that you have to take into account what a room will feel like, not just what it will look like.
DAS doesn’t build buildings, or even rooms. We create experiences.
Many architects have a specific look or feel about their work. DAS has a wide variety of styles and inspiration in their portfolio because we believe that what’s important is designing spaces that reflect the client’s needs and desires, not the firm’s.
DAS Architects, one of the country’s top design firms, has developed an exceptional resume of hospitality, retail, corporate and residential projects. Founded by Susan M. Davidson, IDC and David A. Schultz, AIA in 1990, DAS offers a full range of architectural, interior design and procurement services. Their philosophy is to create designs that are innovative and beautiful while reflecting the client’s goals and vision.
DAS designs are regularly featured among the country’s top designers in publications such as Hospitality Design, Nation’s Restaurant News, Contract Design, Chef Magazine, Restaurants USA, Retail Design, Interior Design and Interiors.
The talented staff of DAS, which includes 20 architects and interior designers, is highly esteemed for their work in creating more than three hundred signature restaurants, hotels, resorts and luxury residential projects. Recently historic elegance was brought to Newport, RI, in Forty 1 North, a world-class waterfront hotel destination.

Morgan; the Tidewater Inn, Inn at the Beach Club, Hyatt Centric Hotel, Hotel Metro, the Granary, the Beacon in Philadelphia, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, a rich and vibrant steakhouse set in an industrial space in the Tribeca section of Manhattan, and the Salt Creek Grille, 400 seat modern rustic pub with open kitchen, lounge, and multiple indoor/outdoor fireplaces located in Los Angeles.
