FOSTER DESIGN FARM is a contemporary Architecture studio located in Philadelphia, led by Carrie Foster, lead designer and Principal Architect with experience working closely with clients since 2012. 

Our passion lies in integrating the old and the new. We excel at uncovering the beauty and value in an existing space and site while creating smart, efficient, and playful design solutions that look to the future.





A personal passion to help people make their spaces beautiful and relevant to their needs

A finely tuned machine that generates place sensitive design output; A design studio that nutures unique solutions that feel as though they were meant to be

An homage to my family history and growing up around greenhouses and rice fields; A belief that we should embrace and take care of our surroundings
