Senior Architect

Eric Olds grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa and attended The Rhode Island School of Design where he received a Bachelor of Architecture & Bachelor of Fine Art’s degree in 1986. He is licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and brings more than 30 years of architectural experience to Abitare Design Studio.

“As a kid, I spent hours drawing and sketching ideas that popped into my head. I love to draw, and I use drawing all the time as a tool to effectively communicate my design intent and ideas for solving problems.”


Abitare Design Studio brings a holistic approach to projects, blending impactful aesthetics with functional design to create innovative projects that enhance the human experience. No matter the size or scale of a project, Abitare prides itself on the level of detail we put into the planning and documentation to facilitate a smooth permitting and construction process. We work closely with our clients to ensure their expectations are met if not exceeded.
