Design is a transformational
experience at Studio BV.

 
 
 

We create spaces to impact how people act and interact with their environment.

 
 

First impressions matter. Seeing a building for the first time, like the first glimpse of a new acquaintance, tells so much. It tells you what you can expect when you have more time with it. But too often, design firms stop their emphasis there — at the first impression. Yet being inside a space, like having your first real conversation with someone, tells a great deal more. Integrating the exterior and interior is essential, because without it the values, passions, and purposes are lost.

 
 
 

We emphasize the totality.

 
 

We are multidisciplinary in our background and experience, which affords us the unique perspective of seeing your design dilemma through myriad lenses. We design everything with equal importance and integrate our design concepts across many scales.

Studio BV brings creativity to clients wanting to leverage design to drive change. We have deep and diverse experience in workplace design, restaurant and retail design, commercial office buildings, residential design, and design strategy.

We are devoted to fostering authentic, intimate, and bold connections to people and places. Building intimacy is not easy and often does not come quickly. Nonetheless, when it's there and right, there is simply no substitute.

Betsy Vohs, Founder, CEO

Betsy founded Studio BV in 2015 in order to dedicate her ideas and energy to clients who want transformational design solutions. Transformational design comes from investigating the places, contexts, and people that will be shaped by the design. How people feel, what they touch, how they interact — these human experiences are central elements of design. 

Vohs’s  background in interior design and architecture gives her a distinct perspective on how to approach design problems. As a result, her work has been featured in local and national publications and has won multiple design awards.

Vohs is passionate about giving back to the design community, often by working with the next generation of architects and designers. Vohs taught design as an instructor at the University of Minnesota, lectured at South Dakota State University, and acted as guest design critic at the University of Minnesota, Dunwoody College, and South Dakota State University.

Vohs’s other outreach work includes serving as the Alumni Board President of the University of Minnesota College of Design and on the University of Minnesota Alumni Association Collegiate Council. Betsy has been a past board member of IIDA Northland Chapter and has juried numerous design competitions.
