We specialize in residential design. Studio Stigsby is a creative and collaborative office operating in the intersecting fields of design, architectural interiors, development strategies and project management. Our work integrates conceptual thinking, research and performance value to establish a responsive architectural environment.


Our guiding principle aims to create space capable of seamlessly merging user, function and context. We thrive to advance a social awareness and responsibility to better the physical environments we create. Through flexible and efficient solutions our spatial discipline and aesthetic shapes an architectural vision custom tailored to each individual client needs.


We understand design to be a pragmatic process based on possibilities and discovery, not limited by restraints or preconceptions. Through inventive thinking, we see challenges as potential opportunities to excel the intelligence and quality of our projects. We approach every project with an interdisciplinary mindset - bringing together a field of knowledge and expertise. We collaborate with architects, engineers, designers, general contractors and developers. 

We primarily work in Montclair, NJ and surrounding areas, NYC, tri-state area and occasionally on select projects elsewhere in the US.



I hired Simon Stigsby to design and manage a significant renovation and expansion of my home. His ideas were creative, work ethic unwavering, and he did a superlative job of managing the project with a clear eye on an end result that exceeded our expectations. He was also consistently aware of our target budget, and remained willing and able to stay within our parameters for the scope of the project. I recommend him highly and without reservation!

Simon was very helpful in assessing our needs and coming up with sensible, reasonable yet style-appropriate solutions. His design aesthetic is top notch and unlike others, he's very calm and pleasant to work with.

We hired Simon to help us improve the interior flow of our suburban 1970's home in north New Jersey. He came to our home, made detailed measurements, and came up with a creative plan that included a lot of innovative ideas we would have never thought of. The total make over was a real success -- we are very happy with the results.

Simon is a pleasure to work with! He is organized, creative and goal oriented. He immediately shared fresh ideas for our project that we hadn't thought of despite our three years of "planning"! And each of those worked out beautifully. His desire for the best result keeps the project on track and any bumps are quickly smoothed and resolved. We can't wait to work with Simon again!

Simon was the designer for my home renovation project. He and his workers were punctual, skilled and respectful of our home and aware of the stress a construction project places on the homeowners. Simon was reassuring and was always responsive to our questions and concerns. The job came out great. Our home has been transformed. I would not hesitate to recommend him on any project-from a modest project to a high end undertaking.

- Michael G.


Simon worked with me on 2 high end residential renovations. He brings a lot to the table: he can troubleshoot any issue whether its design related, scheduling issues, or conflicting personalities. He is highly organized, has an excellent design sensibility, and - most importantly - stays calm under challenging circumstances and is a consummate diplomat. I highly recommend him and look forward to future projects with him on board.

- Christina H.


Simon worked tirelessly on the 15 month design and renovation of my NY loft apartment, showing initiative, creativity, persistence and patience which resulted in a fantastic outcome and I am sure a significant value uplift to the property. Highly recommended.

Simon has a great aesthetic sense that he brings to his projects. He can pick up the feel of a space and intuit how the space can be changed to fit the personalities and lifestyles of his clients.

- William B.


Simon helped us conceptualize, design and bring to life the vision we had for our home renovation. His dedication, attention to detail, and creative solutions made it a pleasure to work with him. Simon made suggestions and recommendations we would have never thought of without his expertise. He was terrific to work with and would highly recommend him.
