Chad DeWitt is the founder of Framestudio, serving as the guiding hand for all the studio’s projects. Chad studied architecture and interior design at California College of the Arts. While still in school, Metropolis magazine featured his work on a midcentury residence. After graduation, he was tapped by Sunset to join its internal design team for the magazine’s annual Idea House. He launched his own studio in 2005. Finished projects include updated residences by Joseph Esherick, Henry Hill, William Turnbull Jr., and Charles Moore. A self-professed design nerd, he receives close to one hundred auction alerts daily and favors California postwar designs, with a dash of 1960’s Italian design.

Andrea Cernusak is Framestudio’s project architect, coordinating everything from drawings to permitting, construction to finishes. She has an insatiable appetite for knowledge spanning Italian window structures to learning the guitar. Curious and outdoorsy by nature, Andrea spends most of her free time bike riding and taking photos of the built environment. ​ Andrea studied Architecture at the University of Idaho and is a Licensed Architect in the State of California.
