A strategy-led design studio and creative consultant, we produce intuitive spaces that connect concept to experience.

With an archivist’s diligence, we sift through memories, mementos, stories to discover the immersive experience. Our work evolves as a conversation–what draws us in, what engages, and the thoughts that gestate long after.

With clients seeing value in our experiential point of view, Ste. Marie is now a firm with 2 parts – first is what we are known for, designing memorable spaces that can engage an audience time and time again, and a second that provides creative concept development. In the end, our outcomes are well positioned and designed in communities that welcome them.
