By pairing a strong architectural focus with boutique-level designs, we aim to make the world a more hospitable place, one space at a time. Our team of experts begin each design project by thinking about the needs and desired experience of end user. SR/A prides itself on providing personalized customer service while delivering innovative designs tailored to the needs and budget of each client.
As a full-service design firm, we are a resource for our clients throughout the life-cycle of the project and beyond. From initial design direction, to material selection, documentation, code compliance, contractor coordination and right on through to furniture selection, procurement and installation – we walk together with our clients through the sometimes-overwhelming steps of a design project.
SR/A (short for Sabine Roy and Associates) was founded in 2003.
Sabine, along with her husband and architect Sean, envisioned a firm that would provide personalized, residential style aesthetics to commercial and hospitality projects. Sabine trained as a designer in Paris and worked in San Francisco and New York before settling in the Washington, DC area. In the 2000s, SR/A made its mark in the flourishing multifamily market. At the company’s tenyear anniversary, La Collection was born – a retail gallery arm of SR/A housing original local artists and one-of-a-kind furniture and accessories. La Collection closed in 2020, as SR/A embraced the changes forced on the industry due to COVID. Today SR/A is known for its end-user focused approach to both new construction and renovation commercial and hospitality projects From humble roots as a team of three, SR/A has grown into a thriving, close-knit team of design, procurement and architectural specialists. SR/A has thrived over the years – staying true to its roots of boutique level design backed by a strong architectural foundation.
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.
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!

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
