Our Story

DS3 Design is a multidisciplinary team that specializes in delivering hospitality, retail and office spaces.

We strive to develop the creation of authentic, sensory and experiential spaces with a strong narrative and a sense of personality. We translate the client’s vision by taking a custom approach, whether working with the architect or directly with the client.

We pride ourselves in our commitment to collaboration. It's the foundation of our studio and the driving force behind our designs,

DS3 Design was founded in 2013 led by David Santos III. He has a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of the Philippines and practiced design and architecture in Asia- Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, China and Singapore for 15 years. In 2006, he relocated to Phoenix and continued to work for Fitch - one of the world's leading retail and brand consultancy. He has worked across the country from California to New York and has gained knowledge and design inspirations through his travels.

How We Do It


We like to get to know our clients and learn all about their business to create a great working relationship and vision for the project.


Our designs are developed to be aesthetically pleasing while also being practical for the environment of each project.


We will develop a design based on concept, trends and traditions.  Each design is created in visual form with sketches and 3D renderings to give a feel for how the space will look at the end of the project.
