ABOUT

The concept of design underpins every element of professional activity that constitutes the ASH organization. Our interior design practice includes private residential clients, hotels, large-scale residential buildings and our own development portfolio. We subscribe to a design theory that eschews premeditation or calculation in favor of an organic approach that is influenced equally by architecture, history, art, light and color. We are fanatics of detail, material and source. We favor the combination of the modern and the ancient, and the harmony that can result from a deft balance of periods along the entire spectrum of design history.

ASH manages the development process from due diligence to sell-out or stabilization. Our vertically integrated team of project managers, construction professionals and designers ensures that each project realizes efficiency and seamless connection of concept, market, budget and constructability. Our goal is to build to the highest standard of detail at the lowest possible cost.

ASH designs, develops, owns and operates hotels. Our hotel team is led by individuals with extensive experience opening and operating premiere hospitality properties throughout the United States.

Our staging business operates in multiple capacities. We design model apartments and sales or leasing offices in new developments for developers and real estate marketing firms; in certain cases, also the common areas in these buildings. We also stage homes that are on the market for sale or rent for brokers and sellers.

ASH oversees the design and fabrication of products including lighting, furniture, textiles, toiletry amenities, leather goods and decorative hardware and accessories. The industrial heritage of our region, along with an abundance of skilled artisanal manufacturers, has allowed us to develop a wide range of bespoke items. The customization of products for our clients and projects ensures a certain veracity of vision that is otherwise difficult to achieve.

We develop property throughout the United States, particularly in rapidly transforming urban neighborhoods.

We design residential buildings, private residences, restaurants and hotels.

We design, develop and operate hotels in historic and creative centers.

We stage real estate for marketing professionals, developers, and sellers using our ever-changing collection.

We produce custom furniture and objects for sale to the trade and to the public. 

 

ASH is premised on the joining of historically compatible disciplines in one company and under one roof.  We aspire to bridge the worlds of interior design and property development, while embracing related opportunities to design products, furniture, brands and experiences.

We are in the business of creating both aesthetic and economic value for our partners, our clients and for ourselves.    

Our company is built from a team of individuals with deep experience in the fields of finance, interior design, architecture, urban planning and fine arts.  The union of these points of view forms the foundation of our interdisciplinary practice.

We aim to demonstrate that the inherent tension between capital and design can be harnessed to further the goals of both.  The intersection of commerce and art is the dynamic core of our business.

We find inspiration in the confluence of history and innovation.  The past lends us the wisdom of civilizations before us; the future is limitless with the possibility of what has yet to be imagined.

Our persistent goal is to leverage our resources to create and deliver the most exceptional product possible in every sector and market where we operate.
