Expert Naples Architects
Turning Your Vision into Reality

The Art of
Luxury Living

SDH Studio is an award-winning architecture firm renowned for our high-end architecture and interior design projects in the most desirable locations across South Florida and Naples Florida. We’re redefining the art of luxury living by blending contemporary architecture with tropical modern elements to produce the most exquisite custom-built luxury homes.

Our partners, Stephanie Halfen and Cristina Magdaleno, are among the most in-demand architectural designers in Florida’s thriving architecture and design scene. The duo believes there is always a story to be told which reflects our client’s personalities. So, their goal is clear: to craft unique and exclusive environments tailored to the individual requirements of each and every client with precision and care.

Elegant and varied, the results are strikingly unique. Their inspiring and stylishly curated spaces share a modern, understated aesthetic which celebrates natural materials, a harmonized color palette, and imperfection. As a consequence, their designs are soulful and warm, while remaining visually balanced and calming.

Our partners are supported by a richly talented team of residential architects and designers who passionately embrace our collaborative design process, and are guided by a dedication to our clients, community and environment.

An Architecture Firm Bringing
Tropical Modernism to Naples, FL

Over the past fifteen years, our architectural design firm has created some of the finest and most distinctive custom homes in South Florida, blending tropical modern architecture with contemporary elements to produce exquisite luxury spaces.

Our unique tropical modern aesthetic blends mid-century design motifs with tropical elements including rare South American woods and stones, exquisite water features, and state-of-the-art sliding window and doorway technology. This fusion creates a seamless indoor-outdoor living experience that is enhanced by immaculate ocean or intracoastal views.

We leverage our design expertise to combine the natural elements of each site with modern, exotic materials and elegant design finishes to curate stunning, open living spaces. All our projects are built around human experience, with home designs purposefully expanding spatial boundaries so that natural light and the physical features of the environment are structured around the daily life of inhabitants.
