TOUZET STUDIO is an award winning architecture and design studio located in Coral Gables, Florida. The studio is dedicated to finding elegant, sustainable solutions that withstand the test of time and meet the increasing challenges of climate.
We believe that the research, design process, and execution of every project should be specific to each site and client. In an age of globalized design firms our approach is much more client centered and site specific. We craft solutions that draw on the most advanced technologies but are client and community centered.
We draw inspiration from a wide variety of sources for our design. We are futurists who believe in innovation. We also love and respect history and preserving our collective stories and cultures. We believe in design that connects humans with nature, mindful and sustainable consideration of each material and process.
From urban design to bespoke interiors and carefully crafted buildings – each project is carefully designed to meet the client’s needs and withstand engagement over time.
Touzet Studio was founded in 2004 in Miami, Florida by Carlos Prio Touzet , AIA and Jacqueline González Touzet AIA, LEED ap. Both Principals and the Studio have won numerous awards and their work has been published internationally.

“The work of Touzet Studio captures that subtle balance that is the essence of the new Miami; it achieves sculpture through attention to detail and materiality rather than relying on flashy forms.”
