small studio | big experience

WINTER HOLBEN is a multidisciplinary studio built around the concept of seamlessly integrating architecture, design, and branding. We are architects, thinkers, makers, designers, and curators, dedicated to creating innovative and engaging design experiences for our clients, their visitors, patrons, and employees alike.

We believe in big ideas and a small team approach, and in close collaborative work with our clients. The cross-pollination of ideas around the studio excites us, and the world outside our walls inspires us. Together, we tap into more than 60 years of collective experience, technical knowledge, and strategic thinking around the built environment.

community + design

We believe in the powerful relationship between design and community: that design transforms communities, and that communities shape design. Our team is dedicated to the Seacoast region, where we live, work, and play, and where we are inspired everyday by the natural landscape and the kind and creative folks whose paths we cross.

Our studio is located at "THINKYARD", a cooperative workspace located in the heart of the Kittery Foreside. We’re lucky to spend our days working amongst many creative entrepreneurs in a friendly and welcoming environment. We look forward to your next visit!
