Founded in 1987 by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, ODADA is an internationally recognized commercial and residential interior design firm. In 1990, David Todd Oldroyd and Greg Stewart joined Diaz-Azcuy as principals, and Ian Bevilacqua and Tamara Dinsmore are recent additions to the leadership team. Together they extend the firm’s strong architectural and design foundation, bringing a clean focused approach to contemporary and traditional projects.

Approach to Residential Design
Great design emerges from great preparation, principled effort and quiet inspiration. ODADA approaches every project as the first project, using their years of study and experience to lead the client through the design process. Careful attention is given to the project scope, budget and schedule, which is layered with the clients lifestyle and taste, allowing the design to unfold as a natural expression of the collaboration between client and designer. The firm's expertise ranges from the development of interior architectural spaces to the design of the most detailed decorative elements, as well as the procurement of furniture, art and accessories. “We draw from the past, but look to the future," says Oldroyd.

Distinguishing Characteristics
The firm’s five principles, along with a staff of 15 architects and designers, assure highly personalized attention to each client and to every aspect of the project. Solutions to the most technically and aesthetically demanding projects are realized by interiors of elegance and simplicity.
