As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, I am beyond proud of our team and the quality of work we have accomplished and the lives we have touched in the process. At SR/A, our designers thrive in a culture of collaborative creativity and excellence. By keeping the needs of the end user forefront in our mind and delving deeply into the ins and outs of each project we are able to develop designs that not only reflect the individual identity and brand of each project but also create a meaningful and memorable experience within the space. I appreciate the wealth of opportunity we’ve had over the years and the wonderful relationships we’ve developed along the way. Here’s to the next 20 years of design excellence!

Our history


2003, Washington, D.C.


SR/A (short for Sabine Roy and Associates) began as a partnership between designer Sabine Roy and her husband, architect Sean Saidi. In the days before founding, SR/A was merely a passion and concept that began while the pair were working in New York City. Sabine envisioned a firm that would provide personalized, residential style aesthetics to commercial and hospitality projects by way of her design experience and Sean’s architectural expertise.

2013, Bethesda, MD


As the company’s 10 year anniversary approached, Sabine still felt something was missing: a retail gallery to compliment the firm, similar to a prior business setup she was afforded in New York. Sabine searched for a space that could fulfill such a demand for months, until a former client led her to an available property in downtown Bethesda. After extensive renovations, SR/A moved into its new location on Wisconsin Avenue in 2013. Shortly after, La Collection came to fruition as the retail gallery of SR/A, housing vintage antiques, unique furniture and one-of-a-kind accessories.

2018, Bethesda, MD


Throughout the course of 15 years, SR/A experienced tremendous change in infrastructure and growth in achievement. What began as a trio with one project morphed into a thriving, close-knit team with more than 30 successfully completed projects. During this time, SR/A was actively involved in the community by hosting annual charity events (such as its annual dog adoption with City Dogs Rescue) and regular art receptions featuring local artists. By developing strong, lasting relationships with clients and industry leaders, SR/A made its mark on the community by offering top-notch service and striking design projects.

2020, Chevy Chase, MD


Though SR/A has always included renovations in our list of services, the slow down in new construction created by COVID-19 enabled our renovation division to grow by leaps and bounds Officially know as SR/A Too, our renovation division prides itself on providing personalized customer service while delivering innovative designs tailored to the needs and budget of each client. 2020 was a year of change for the world, and SR/A was no exception. La Collection, the firm’s retail gallery, closed and the firm’s headquarters moved from downtown Bethesda to Chevy Chase, MD.

2023, Chevy Chase, MD


As our reach and growth expand, SR/A remains committed to it’s roots—pairing a strong architectural focus with boutique designs tailored to the end user for each and every project. Diversifying project types and market locations is a focus for the firm’s next generation of leaders. While looking to the future, SR/A continues to cultivate a supportive, collaborative team culture in the present, including embracing a hybrid workplace. Above all, we continue to be grateful for our past success and thankful to those who supported us along the way.

Client’s Testimonials

Success that's driven by the passion of our clients.

View All

During the course of the Telek Place [Denizen] project it was great working with you all. Any time I had a question or concern about a detail Brendan was always available and willing to help out. Whether a RFI or a site visit, he was always willing. In the end the job and designed turned out great. It was a pleasure to have worked with Brandan and everyone at SR/A.

Steve Escobar, Superintendent

HITT Contracting

Sabine and her team set the design inspiration for our entire project from day one by framing Modera Sedici (the “Italian Embassy”) as a “yin and yang” design: a blending of the old with the new. Placing contemporary designs inside an historical, traditional setting, and then flipping that on its head in our new construction. SR/A, along with the rest of our design team, executed this vision perfectly, and created a building that will have a long-lasting impact in the District!

Joe Muffler, Managing Director

Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC

From start to finish “top-notch”! Aventus Construction, LLC has worked with SR/A on numerous projects in the DC metropolitan area. SR/A looks after the client in numerous ways and streamlines the building process with all materials pre-selected and approved by the client. As the contractor, we respect the high level of collaboration, as the finished product is exactly what the client wants, perfection. We could not ask for a better partner in the design process. SR/A is the best of the best!

Jennifer Freedman, CPA

Aventus Construction LLC

We appreciate the creativity and sense of partnership with which the excellent SR/A team approached the interior design for our apartment community at Fenwick. Their design responded beautifully to the vision that had been established for the project while also respecting the budgetary prerogatives that were set before them.

Sarah Davidson, Partner

Insight Property Group

I would like to take a moment to share a few comments on behalf of SR/A. During the latter part of 2013, I was introduced to Sabine Roy and her staff. The warmth, sincerity and professionalism that was shown to my colleagues and I then is the same consistent way we are treated today.

Nate Dunn, Construction Manager

MRP Realty

We had an amazing experience with SR/A Interior Design. The consultants were fast in response, and provided beautiful and luxurious selections to meet the needs of our interior renovation. We will certainly use SR/A again for future projects.

Katie Evans, General Manager

North Park Luxury Apartments

Washington Property Company uses SR/A for interior design on many of our multifamily projects. The combination of Sabine’s artistic flair and her partner Sean’s architectural space planning and attention to detail make for a well-coordinated project for the developer as well as a product that is well-received by the marketplace. It is a joy to work with them because they love what they do and the results show it.

Daryl South, Senior Vice President of Development and Acquisitions

Washington Property Company

Working with the folks at SR/A is a privilege. I have worked with many interior designers in over 25 years in the architectural visualization industry and their interior design work is the most creative and unique that I have ever seen. Not only that, but Sabine Roy has created a culture of precise organization and detailed communication that is unrivaled.

Michael Secrist, CEO, Visualization Director

F13 Design Studio

I have taken quite a few people through [the amenities and permanent models at Denizen] and every time I get the same response which is that universally people love it. The comfortable feel, unique characteristics of the space and attention to details give Denizen personality and make it memorable. The finished product is outstanding! I think the areas where we backed off and let you have the space turned out the best. I enjoyed getting to know the SR/A team and working with you. Congratulations to you and your team on a remarkable job.
