New Additions to the Team


V Three Studios, LLC announces the hire of interior designer Sandy Chiu. With extensive interior design experience at a national scale and a background in mechanical design, Chiu brings a well-balanced approach to creating effective design solutions.

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Chiu worked as a mechanical design professional in St. Louis for five years while pursuing an education in interior design. She gained nine years of interior design experience before coming onboard at V Three Studios as the Interior Design lead. Chiu is also a LEED Accredited Professional.

V Three Studios has added multiple team members this year, marking a sustained period of steady growth for the firm.

Having known Sandy for more than a decade, I’m confident in her ability to both develop small projects solo and integrate with our team on the larger scale projects. Her outstanding work ethic combined with her design sensibility is a true win-win for V3 and our clients. We know she had other options so we are all very excited she chose V3. Sandy is just an outstanding person and we are excited to have her on our team.
