About the Firm 
Moto Designshop is a boutique architecture and interior design studio in the Old City art district of Philadelphia. The firm originated as an independently funded design/build and real estate development company and within a few years, evolved into a client based practice with completed works throughout the Philadelphia and North East region. Our work varies in scale from luxury bathrooms, to custom residences, to large mixed use developments to flagship retail; but always consistent, is our attention to well-considered details and moments which make the experiences relatable at the human scale. Laced with extraordinary abilities in high tech visualization, our construction based origins continue to guide a love and interest in work which is well crafted and timeless. Moto Designshop's affiliate company MTDS is a registered MBE firm. www.mtdsllc.com
