We are a team of creators, thinkers, storytellers and producers; we make stories come to life. The studio located in New York City  is an incubator and a lab for ideas.

LUXESCAPE is focused on the interdisciplinary approach to design. This multidisciplinary philosophy gives the company a unique edge. The team purposely collaborates with designers and artists from outside the studio—architectural, graphic, fashion, industrial, engineering—to get fresh perspectives and to create potential for cross-fertilization.

The studio is led by Karen Alvarez, LEED AP, IESNA

Over the last decade Karen Alvarez has been delivering designs of distinction, sophistication and utility. Each design is carefully curated and tailored to reflect the unique vision of each client, while addressing the specific operational needs. She approaches each design from the guests’ view-point and their experience of the space. Her clients benefit from her expertise gained through a decade of experience in the luxury design field and her personal commitment to each project.
