Chen + Suchart Studio works at a variety of scales ranging from small well crafted projects and single family residences to larger scale urban design. The practice is not interested in style. The common thread between all projects undertaken in our studio is the integrity of design that transcends style. The work of the studio is focused on the reinvention of known ideas, spatial experience, and the quality and craft of construction in all of our projects.


Thamarit Suchart and Patricia Szu-Ping Chen Suchart completed their studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture 1997) and Harvard University's Graduate School of Design (Master of Architecture in Urban Design 1999). Thamarit was born and raised in Arizona. Having left Arizona for 13 years of education on the east coast of the United States, he chose to return to Arizona to raise his family and to start a design practice with Patricia in 2002. Patricia is a native of Taipei, Taiwan. 


After working for numerous award winning architecture firms in both Boston and Phoenix, the pair officially established their own architecture firm in 2010. In 2012, the firm was identified as “15 Young Firms to Watch: Chen + Suchart Studio” by Residential Architect Magazine. Since 2015, the firm has been the recipient of a total of nine AIA design awards, from both the AIA Arizona Chapter as well as from the AIA Western Mountain Region Chapter. 2015 also included an award from Residential Architect Magazine, where The Staab Residence was awarded the Design Award for a Custom Home over 3,000 SF. Thamarit is a registered architect in the State of Arizona, Georgia, and New Jersey.

 

Thamarit has also served as a faculty associate and adjunct lecturer, teaching undergraduate and graduate design studios at both Arizona State University and the University of Arizona from 2010-2016. He is committed to sharing his knowledge with the future generations of architects when the practice allows for the dedication of time for design education.
