SO Studio was founded in 2016 by Stephen Ortego after serving in the Louisiana House of Representatives. Based in Lafayette, Louisiana, we are an architecture and urban design firm that focuses on innovative designs for both their time and place. We value our heritage buildings and thus specialize in historic preservation as well.

SO Studio brings its knowledge of urban buildings and landforms to the neighborhood scale by creating master plans for both new neighborhoods and infill projects. We also take our knowledge into our buildings with interior design projects for both new construction and renovations.

Every project is special to us and we strive to bring innovative solutions to every client. We also develop our own mixed-use projects, helping to develop urban typologies that improve the way we work, live and play.
