Tracy Design Studio
We provide a full spectrum of architectural, construction and interior design services for the residential and commercial client.
For residential projects, our approach is to find that precarious balance between the beauty and the emotional substance; that is the hertiage of Europe on the one hand, and American ideas of comfort and practically on the other. If that balance is achieved, then serenity and timelessness will follow, and these above all, are what we seek.

Maria Tracy started her professional career with a Masters Degree in Architecture from the University Of Houston College Of Architecture. As an Architectural History assistant, she performed in-depth studies of many “archetypes” and developed an appreciation for not only the classics, but the “newer design” eras such as the twenties, thirties and mid-century modern. She was privileged to teach Architectural History and Architectural Design courses in the Summer Studies Program with the University of Florence and University of Rome. Through those experiences she developed a wealth of knowledge and impassioned desire for the enhancement of architecture through interior design.
“In Florence and Rome, I found myself, for the first time. I was moved by the recognition of the profound effect Anthropomorphic spaces, or space that humans can relate to in Florence , and shocked by the monumental scale in Rome.”
